By Eric Owen, updated January 19th, 2015: The TurboTax/Quicken bundle deal for 2015 has returned. If you’re a user of both TurboTax and Quicken software like we are, then you’ll save up to an extra $20.00 to $50.00 when you buy both of the new versions together. And this year we’re lucky as we now have three compelling TurboTax-Quicken bundles available. You can have the option to get it directly from Intuit and get Quicken Starter for free or 50% off one of the other 2015 versions, get it at Amazon and save $20.00 instantly, or pick it up at Staples and mail-in a rebate form to get a $40.00 back (remember that Staples has a price-match guarantee). See below for the details on each of these offers.
Option #1 – Quicken Starter 2015 for free or 50% off the other versions at Intuit.com.
This is our favorite bundle deal this year!
TurboTax has something called the TurboTax Advantage program. It’s a free program where you sign up to get TurboTax automatically each year when it’s released (aka, auto-renew program). Maybe you’re interested in it, maybe not, but one of the perks of signing up and buying TurboTax this year as an Advantage program member is that you’ll get a copy of Quicken Starter Edition free or 50% off any Quicken product download. Yes, that means that you can save over $50.00 on Quicken 2015 depending on the version that you choose. Some other perks of the program include live phone support, free instant shipping when the newest TurboTax is available, and a customized dashboard. Best of all, it doesn’t cost you anything more to buy TurboTax though this program and you can cancel your membership AT ANY TIME!
Here are the full offer details. You’ll have up until January 31st, 2015 to get Quicken Starter Edition free or 50% off any Quicken product download with this deal.
Option #2 – Newegg’s TurboTax-Quicken Bundle Discount.
We don’t recall seeing this bundle deal from Newegg last year but this year you’ll save $35.00 on all TurboTax-Quicken bundles. That’s on top of the already listed sale prices. Similar to the Amazon bundle offer (listed below), this is an instant savings… So that means that there is no need to hassle with sending in any rebate forms. You’ll also get free Eggsaver shipping (4 to 7 business days depending on where you live) or, if you’re already a Premier member, free 3-day-or-less shipping.
We couldn’t find an expiration date listed for this offer but we do expect it to last through tax season.
Option #3 – The 2015 TurboTax-Quicken bundle from Amazon
Amazon their TurboTax-Quicken bundles posted separately depending on the configuration that you need. You’ll see that the discount will be reflected in your shopping cart once both qualifying versions are added. There are no forms to send in and no extra coupon codes needed to take advantage of the offer. If you’re an Amazon Prime member, this bundle will qualify for the free two-day shipping. These are the bundles that you have to choose from:
