Best Buy Canada Promotional Code: 20% Off TurboTax Premier

Posted by on March 19, 2014 at 6:30 PM

Best Buy Canada Promotional Code: 20% Off TurboTax Premier

I believe that today is actually the day that pigs have begun flying because Best Buy has released a promotional code! It’s so incredibly rare that they release any codes at all that I almost couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw it, especially since it’s right on point with tax season! For  a limited time, you can either use the code or the printable coupon below to save 20% on a physical copy of TurboTax Premier.

Click here to print your Best Buy coupon now

Click here to order the TurboTax Premier @ BestBuy.ca now

  • Coupon Code: 20intuit
  • Discount: 20% off TurboTax Premier
  • Expiry: 3rd April 2014

Keep in mind that the Best Buy promotional code is case sensitive and must be entered in the exact same way as above for it to work (i.e., no caps). Although originally priced at $69.99, with the discount, TurboTax Premier drops down to just $55.99, which is cheaper than everyone else. Amazon and Staples, for instance, both have it for close to $69.99.

Although the premier one is for up 12 returns, if you don’t need that many, then you can get the TurboTax Standard instead as it’s currently on sale for just $28.99 (reg. $39.99) at Best Buy.

I know that filing your own taxes may seem daunting at first (heck, it has been for me for years) but the thing is that though you might spend a little longer this year figuring everything out, come next year, you will be all set and will simply breeze through it. Plus, on top of avoiding those outrageous fees that accountants charge, you will also have peace of mind in knowing that everything was filed correctly because oftentimes than not, even accountants make mistakes.

The biggest thing to remember though is that filing taxes in today’s day and age simply isn’t the same as to how it was decades ago. Whereas before, everything was filed with a pen and numerous confusing papers, now, softwares like TurboTax do all the work for you. All you need to do is enter your numbers, exactly as you see them. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy!

Even better is that Best Buy automatically offers free shipping to all orders over $20.

Alternatively, if you prefer downloading an online version of TurboTax premier, then you can also use our BargainMoose exclusive TurboTax discount link to save 12% off its purchase instead.

Bargainmoose Contest: Win 1 of 18 Copies of Turbotax 2013 Now! (CLOSED)

Posted by on March 10, 2014 at 7:30 AM

Bargainmoose Contest: Win 1 of 18 Copies of Turbotax 2013 Now!  (CLOSED)

*** Contest now closed, winners have been emailed & received prizes! ***

 

Intuit TurboTax will be making the lives of 18 lucky BargainMoosers a lot easier this tax season, because they’ve given us 18 copies of TurboTax Standard 2013 (worth $17.99 each) to give away this week!

TurboTax Standard is made for regular individuals and families. The software will point out any deductions that you can make for your kids and help optimize your RRSP contributions, among other things. It’s also interesting to point out that TurboTax guarantees that they will give you the biggest return or lowest amount to pay than any other “tax prep method” you’ll use.  I’ve never tested out this statement but if you have, let us know how it went by leaving a comment! Of course when I say that, I mean leave an extra comment in addition to your answer to our magical contest entry question.

How to enter this Canadian Contest:

For a chance to win a copy of  TurboTax Standard, all you have to do to is tell us what you’ll be spending your tax return money on if you get money back (and I’m hoping you will!)

“What will you be spending your tax return money on if you do get money back?”

In case you don’t win this contest, keep in mind that TurboTax is offering a 15% discount off its online editions until the end of March. You’ll find this offer on our TurboTax coupon codes page.

Rules:

  • Canadian entrants only
  • One type of entry per household
  • Ends 16th March 2014
  • Rules subject to change at admin’s discretion

TurboTax: 15% Off Desktop and Online Tax Software

Posted by on March 5, 2014 at 11:30 PM

TurboTax: 15% Off Desktop and Online Tax Software

Tax season is coming *doom doom doom* and you need to be prepared. The alternative is to run around in circles freaking out: either option has worked for me in the past. However, currently Intuit TurboTax is offering 15% off desktop and online tax software so you can file your taxes on time this year.

Are you a single person hold up in your house with a stack of papers that have ‘T’s and numbers following those letters? You should be good with the Standard Online version which will set you back only $15.29, originally $17.99.

If you have the same basic needs but you have a family: say a husband/wife and a few teenagers running around, then you will need to pick up the Basic CD/Download that was $19.99 and is now $16.99. It allows you do file up to eight returns and is perfect for families with more than one income.

However, if you own your own business or play with the stock market there are different tax software kits for those. Choose the one that best suits your needs by reading the product descriptions. I am totally not looking forward to tax season this year. All my forms from the bank have not even come in yet. I hate that I always have to do taxes right before finals: students shouldn’t have to do their taxes till the summer!

All products that download do not require shipping (of course). If you do choose to get the software shipped to you, shipping starts at $4.

TurboTax Canada: 12% Off TurboTax 2013

Posted by on January 31, 2014 at 4:30 PM

TurboTax Canada: 12% Off TurboTax 2013

It’s tax time people, the most wonderful time of the year! Make it even more wonderful with TurboTax.

When I say “Click here to get 12% off @ TurboTax.ca”, I mean it. You have to use that specific link to get the deal. Click it. Cllliiiiick it… Click it!

I legitimately love tax time. My tax return is always awesome. It’s made even more awesome because I do my own taxes. I see people dumping big portions of their tax return on places like H&R Block and, while that’s fine if you don’t mind wasting money, there is a better way! Before I get in to this, I want to mention that there is no substitute for a legitimate accountant. If you screw up your taxes because you did them on your own, it’s not my fault. I warned you!

That being said, millions of people do their own taxes each year and I don’t hear of many people messing them up. I’ve been doing my own taxes since I got my first job out of college and have even started doing them for other people as well. I know a lot of people who use Turbo Tax and they really like it. Even when I worked at Wal~Mart we would bring out these pre-made turbo tax displays constantly for months at a time because they would always sell out.

Costco Canada: TurboTax Only $29 & Free Shipping

Posted by on January 22, 2014 at 2:30 PM

Costco Canada: TurboTax Only $29 & Free Shipping

TurboTax Standard for 2013 is on sale, the cheapest I could find it, at Costco for only $28.99, was $38.99. It will also ship to you free and the best part is that you don’t have to be a Costco member to get this item!

Don’t give your heard-earned tax refund to H&R Block or an accountant. If you have simple taxes, do them yourself! Even if they aren’t that simple, TurboTax software walks you through it. Trust me, I am not great with numbers, which is why I got into writing – no numbers involved – and I do my own taxes. I even have my own home-based business and my husband has complicated business expenses to figure out, but I find it easy with this software and if I can’t figure something out I can call their help desk via phone or live chat or the CRA. They even have a 100% accurate calculation and maximum refund guarantee, which means that if you figure out a higher tax refund elsewhere, they will give you back the cost of the software.

The standard edition is best for individuals, couples or families claiming standard deductions. This format is the CD format and it must be activated before use. If you were looking for a downloadable version, we do have an exclusive coupon code for 12% off, but that price will be higher than the one you see here.

BMO Canada: Customers Get 20% Off TurboTax Online

Posted by on February 1, 2013 at 5:00 PM

BMO Canada: Customers Get 20% Off TurboTax Online

If you are a Bank of Montreal customer, you are entitled to get 20% off the regular price of TurboTax online editions or 10% off the Premier or Home & Business desktop software. This deal starts February 1st.

You may be nowhere near thinking about your taxes yet, but I am. As a self-employed person I have most of my data from the first of January and since I am so super-organized (okay, I’m not), I have all of my information ready in spreadsheets, waiting to punch into my online tax software. Even if I am not ready to file, I always like to see the approximate amount of my refund, or in other years, what I’ll have to pay. *cry*

I have always used TurboTax. I find it easy to use, even with some of my more complicated calculations and deductions. Being self-employed doesn’t make it easy for me to file my taxes as people with just a simple T4, but there are helpful guides and even online customer service support.

TurboTax questions everything they can about your situation so you don’t miss out on any helpful deductions. The first year that I opened my own business, I was scared and spent over $100 for an accountant to file my taxes. Then I found errors and that things were missed and wondered if I should do it myself. So, for less than $50, I do my own taxes and I know I am not missing anything. I think anyone can do it if I can because I am horrible at math and anything to do with numbers!

There are different versions of TurboTax, depending on your situation. The Standard Online version is for the everyday person who has a fairly simple situation. Get it for only $14.39 per return (reg. $17.99). The Premier Online version is for people with investments and other income like rental income. Get it for only $26.39 (reg. $32.99). I use the Home & Business Online version, which is for people with self-employment income. It is only $35.99 (reg. $44.99). And the last version is the Student Online version, which is actually free if you are a student whose income is not more than $20,000.

If you’d prefer the desktop version, those are 10% off if you are a BMO customer. Get the Premier version for $62.99 (reg. $69.99) and the Home and Business version for $89.99 (reg. 99.99).

Shipping for the CD desktop version starts at $4.

TurboTax: Save 20% on any Online Edition

Tax season is nearing its end – file by the end of April! If you still haven’t picked up your tax software, TurboTax is offering 20% off all their online versions again this week.

The coupon code automatically applies when you click through the link above.

That means:

  • The TurboTax standard online edition is $14.39 (reg. $17.99).
  • The TurboTax premier online edition is $26.39 (reg. $32.99)
  • The TurboTax Home & Business online edition is $35.99 (reg. $44.99).

My hubby didn’t manage to get our taxes done yet because we are still waiting on some documentation. Frustrating! I am thinking we are just going to have to file anyway without waiting for the paperwork from my scholarship. We know the amount so that should be fine.

Make sure you check to see if you qualify to use the Free Version, or the Student Version.

Expiry: 23rd, April 2012
