The annual tax software discount thread (2017-)

The old thread dates back to 2007 so I thought it was time for a refresh.

Jan 8 prices at various retailers as follows (will update) - same prices as last year:

TurboTax Deluxe (fed+state efile):
$39.86 @ Costco and Amazon (mac or PC, download or DVD)

TurboTax Premier (fed+state efile):
$54.86 @ Costco and Amazon (mac or PC, download or DVD)

According to Intuit email, these prices are good through Jan 14 also at b&m retailers including Target, WalMart, BestBuy, etc.

Have not seen any mileage offers yet.

If your household income is under $62,000 you can use H&R Block Premium for free at myfreetaxes.com.

If use code 18450 at staples.com it will take $10 off all Turbotax software purchases.

I saw a Southwest link to 1000 RR points for using TT. Valuing at 1.4 cents that is roughly $14 (equivalent to the current cash discounts) and unfortunately also requires using the TT online product. I prefer to have the software and the returns on my computer so this is a no go for me.

Sites like Ebates have cashback for purchasing through their sites. Looks like H&R Block is 10%; TurboTax and TaxAct 7.5%. Also cash back on electronics stores and office stores that sell tax software.

Looks like you get the same discounts as you would through RetailMeNot and other coupon sites.

I see Costco is already offering 2019 TurboTax products for $10 off. I am sure there are more discounts to come but in case anyone is in a rush

Any way to buy that from Costco without a membership?
