10% Amazon Gift Card bonus with Turbo Tax

If you shop at Amazon often, and you are expecting a tax refund this year, Amazon and Turbo Tax have a new promotion for this tax year that might be of interest. If you purchase one of the eligible Turbo Tax products, and file your taxes, you can apply some (or all) of your Federal Refund towards the purchase of Amazon Gift Cards and get a 5% to 10% bonus on the Amazon gift cards. So you can convert a $100 refund into a $110 Amazon Gift card. The offer applies to amounts in multiples of $100 (eg $100, $200, $300, $400, etc).

10% is for the Turbo Tax Deluxe or Premiere or Home & Business products. 5% is for Basic. Turbo Tax Business is not eligible. See more details on the promotion.

In addition to the above, they offer some product discounts that include Kingston memory products and Corel software products (and other non-camera related items). See more details.

NOTE: based on the customer reviews over there, it looks like Turbo Tax features have been downgraded in some versions this year, so check the specs and reviews for more details if you are not familiar with the 2014 Turbo Tax line-up. They are getting hammered in the customer reviews over this.

Deal Follow-Up: Amazon Camera Gift Card promotional credit expires 1/31/15 or 2/7/15

This is a deal follow-up/reminder, not a new deal. If you previously had purchased one of the Amazon Camera Electronic Gift Cards during the holidays with the $25 or $50 promotional bonus towards a future purchase, the promotional credits expire on 1/31/15 ($25 promotion) or 2/7/15 ($50 promotion) if they are not used by that time.

The credit is already in your account, it will show up in your shopping cart (the Amazon Checkout page) if you add any of the eligible cameras for that promotion and proceed to Checkout.

As a refresher, these are our older posts talking about these. These are for reference only, they are not good for new buyers. Only the ones who previously purchased the eligible Camera gift cards during the Holidays: $50 promotion and $25 promotion.

Free Gift Box with Free 1-Day shipping on select Amazon Gift Cards

Simply select which designs you want and the amounts, which range from $50 to $2000 per gift card. This is a limited time offer in the runup to Christmas.

This promotion should not be confused with the two-step electronic gift card promotion that gets you a $50 promotional credit toward select DSLRs if you buy the “Amazon Camera” electronic gift card design with $0.50 or more.
