The 2015 Turbotax Amazon Gift Card Refund Offer

Turbotax Amazon Gift Card Refund Offer

Updated March 6th, 2015 – Our favorite deal from TurboTax is back again for 2015 and rivals the 10% gift card refund offer that’s available for H&R Block tax software this year as well.  If you’re expecting a tax refund this year and you’re planning on using TurboTax to complete your 2014 tax return, then you can get up to an extra 10% on top of the refund coming to you. TurboTax and Amazon have teamed up to give you up to 110% of the refund coming to you if you elect to receive some or all of you refund in the form of an Amazon gift card. So for example, if you are expecting to receive a $3,000 federal tax refund this year then you will get $3,300 ($300 bucks more) if you decide to get the entire amount on an Amazon gift card.

How It Works

After you complete your tax return using one of the qualified TurboTax products but right before you click “send your returns” in the File section of TurboTax, you will be given the option of choosing all of part of your refund in an Amazon.com gift card. You can choose any increments of $100 to up to the amount of your refund or $10,000 (whichever is less). Then TurboTax will give you an extra 5% or 10% on your gift card depending on the version that you’re using. The remaining amount of your refund will be deposited to your bank account that was provided when you completed your tax return.

When will I receive my Amazon e-gift card?

You will receive your Amazon e-Gift card claim code by email about two business days after your federal refund is available from the IRS.  For some people this happens quickly, for others it may take a few weeks.  On average, it takes the IRS 21 calendar days to process your Federal tax refund. You can always check the status after you file your tax return and find out if your federal tax refund has been processed or not by going to the Where’s My Refund page at irs.gov.

Which products will qualify and how much will I get?

The percentage of the bonus that you can get will vary depending on the TurboTax Desktop or Online version that you purchase. Not all of TurboTax products will give you the same percentage discount so we’ve broken down the details below.

TurboTax Federal Free Edition with the TurboTax PLUS add-on (2014 tax year):

  • Extra 5% added to your gift card if completed at the TurboTax Store.

TurboTax Basic (2014 tax year) Desktop version:

TurboTax Deluxe (2014 tax year) Desktop version:

TurboTax Premier (2014 tax year) Desktop version:

Turbotax Home & Business (2014 tax year) Desktop version:

TurboTax Deluxe, Premier or Home & Business (2014 tax year) Online Versions:

  • Extra 5% added to your gift card if purchased from the TurboTax Store.

Do I have to use my entire refund to purchase a gift card?

No! You can choose any increments of $100.00 for your gift card. Just note that only federal refunds will qualify (any State refunds owed to you will not qualify for this offer).  And it goes without saying, you don’t need to spend the entire amount on a single purchase/transaction… you can use it as you go only when you need to shop at Amazon.

    Tina…
    If you cant spend $1,100 on amazon happily your standards for merchandise is way too high. Secondly ladies… Theres no ‘glitch’ in the system. I have used this program the last 2 years, I was always annoyed by the numerous times I had to agree to the programs conditions and the number of times I had to click ok to accept and the times it showed how much money I decided to put on a gift card. Its completely obvious you cant do it by ‘accident.’

    I will NEVER use TurboTax again. I’m not sure if there’s a glitch in their system, but thanks to them, I am now receiving $1100 of my refund money on a Amazon card. I have never shopped at Amazon, and never chose this option. I am a single mother, and need all the money I can to dig myself out of debt. Now have $1100 going to something I’ll never use!
