This service normally costs $25 per month, however they are having an introductory offer right now where you can get your first three months for just $12/month. No longterm contacts with this plan so you can try it out and cancel at anytime down the road. We’ve put together more details about it which you can see here. This is an ongoing introductory offer from Intuit.

Students can use TurboTax for free – Being a student brings some perks with it – One of those being the discounts offered by many different companies. Once again for 2021, TurboTax is offering their software for free for students with all the support you’ll ever need (like deductions for school supplies, textbooks and tuition). The only catch is that your return has to simple so if you’re already a part-time stock investor, have a side online business, or dabble in real-estate investing, then you’ll have to pay for your software like the rest of us.
So how exactly does TurboTax apply the discount?
Most stores use coupon codes to apply any available discounts to your order. That means you need to have one in-hand and physically enter it at checkout. Orders from the official TurboTax store at the intuit.com site is a bit different – That’s because they use different landing pages (i.e. URL’s) to apply different savings. So when you see one of the offers we have posted here on Software Voucher, just click on the link and you should be good to go. Just remember that once you’re on the TurboTax website, you’ll need to select the product that you wish to purchase and login to your account to get the discount reflected.
See below for an example of how the savings are shown on intuit.com. If you’re your new to TurboTax or if your tax situation changed from last year, then you can just start with the “Federal Free” option and the software will recommend the upgrade if and when needed.
If you’re already on the checkout page and you don’t see the savings applied your your Premier order there could be a few things going on. One of the errors may be that you followed the link but didn’t login to your TurboTax account (that’s one of the most common errors). If that’s the case, just try one of the deals up above again and it should work. The second most common problem is that you followed the offer link a few days ago and in the meantime, when you were completing your online return, the offer expired. You’ll find that TurboTax has a few price increases throughout the tax season and certain promotions are subject to end before you end up paying for your purchase. That’s why we recommend not waiting up until the very last moment to file your tax return because it’s possible an offer will end.
You will also notice that on the first page of the checkout process, about mid-way on the screen or so (that depends on the computer/table you’re using at the moment), that there is an area to enter something called a “service code”. TurboTax uses service codes to match your purchase with help pre-purchase help provided by one of their phone or chat customer representatives. You won’t need to enter anything here unless you have one of these codes already.
In terms of other promotions, specifically TurboTax partner deals with financial institutions like Capital One, Bank of America, Citi, Visa, or Chase, or other membership organizations/credit unions like AAA, SunTrust, AARP, etc., there may be some available for you this year. However we don’t have the specific details or list for 2021 so just give your bank a call to see if there are any customer discounts available. We’ve just found in the past that many of the offers through these partnerships are nearly identical to the official discounts that we already have posted here on Software Voucher so it’s usually not worth the hassle finding them.
Where did the TurboTax Refund Bonus Offer go?
If you were looking forward to the Amazon-TurboTax Refund Bonus where, if you filed with Premier Desktop, you could get 10% extra cash added to the Federal refund that was coming your way if elected to put it on an Amazon gift card, then so were we. However to our surprise, the offer didn’t return for 2021 after a strong multi-year run. It’s really a shame because for many folks the amount they earned from the refund bonus deal was more than the cost of filing with TurboTax itself.
But as bad as that news is for returning TurboTax customers, then good bit of news is that H&R Block took over the refund bonus offer. They have a nearly identical offer where you could choose to earn 5% to 10% extra on your Federal refund if you put the amount coming to you on an Amazon gift card. The only catch appears that you need to buy the software from Amazon directly as well (nothing is mentioned at hrblock.com about it).
You just have to remember that if you owe extra taxes for the 2020 tax year, thus not receiving a Federal tax refund, then you won’t be able to participate in this promotion. Plus, there is a gift card cap so if you’re so lucky to be expecting such a large tax refund, then you won’t be able to elect more on your total amount designated for the gift card(s).
If you’re interested in trying H&R Block’s at home tax software and taking advantage of their bonus refund deal, then be sure to see our complete list of deals available on Basic, Deluxe, Premium, and Premium & Business versions to save up to 20% on the software itself.
