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.
