Use TurboTax, and you can get 5 or 10 percent added to your federal tax refund, free. The one catch? You have to take it on an Amazon gift card.

We recently ran a story called “10 Secret Strategies to Save Big Bucks at Amazon,” but I just uncovered what could be the 11th.

Intuit, maker of TurboTax, is potentially offering hundreds of dollars you can spend at Amazon. This deal will make sense for those getting a big federal tax refund, are doing their taxes with TurboTax, and don’t mind diverting a chunk of it into Amazon gifts cards.

Here’s the deal in a nutshell

If you’re willing to convert part of your tax refund into gift cards from Amazon, TurboTax will add 5 percent to it if you use their Basic or Federal Free products, 10 percent if you use their Deluxe, Premier, Home & Business, or Military editions.

The max they’ll give you in gift cards is $10,000.

Click one of the following links to TurboTax:

Here are the details of the deal, from the TurboTax website:

When you’re ready to file
  • Use any increment of $100 from your federal tax refund to purchase an Amazon.com Gift Card.
  • TurboTax will give you an extra 5 percent on your gift card if you are using Federal Free Edition or Basic.
  • TurboTax will give you an extra 10 percent on your gift card if you are using Deluxe, Premier, Home & Business or Military Edition.
  • For example, if you file with TurboTax Deluxe, you can use $500 of your refund to receive a $550 Amazon.com Gift Card.
  • As soon as your refund is available, we’ll email you your Amazon.com Gift Card claim code.
  • Shop on Amazon.com for almost everything — including groceries!

Amazon.com Gift Card offer is for federal refunds only. Limits apply ($2,000 per e-card, maximum $10,000 per customer).

Offer available only for TurboTax Online or CD/download versions sold and shipped, or downloaded directly from Intuit or Amazon.
