      As of 7:30 eastern time Turbotax link is already broken, lightbulbs are sold out.

    2. wikkit says:


      I second that.

    3. SexCpotatoes says:

      So get up earlier, dude. So you can catch the deals before they’re gone. Your bank account and credit cards aren’t going to spend themselves!

    4. mike says:

      TurboTax link is broken. But you can go to their main site and still see the deal:

    5. friendlynerd says:

      Post was meant to be informative, not snarky. suck it.

    6. bradanomics says:

      I finished filing my taxes last night using TurboTax and they go and do this. Figures.

    7. dialing_wand says:

      The “product info” copy on the “woot” mouse page is just a little disturbing.

    8. That One Caveman says:

      I don’t know if it’s already been mentioned, but if you’re a State Farm customer, you can use and e-file through TurboTax Online for free. I just finished up my federal and two states.

      There are a few other free tax preparation tools listed at Blueprint for Financial Prosperity: []

      @sohmc: That worked for me. I had our taxes 99% done already, so I went ahead and filed today. That saved us about $70 in tax prep fees, yay!

    10. Yankees368 says:

      The lightbulbs are back up to order.

    11. ecwis says:

      @dialing_wand: Ha, it’s like one of those Nigerian scam emails. How clever.

    12. Me - now with more humidity says:

      TurboTax link still down.

    13. DrUnKtAnK says:

      Thanks for the TurboTax info. Funny thing is that I did our taxes last night and H&R Blocks software gained me $600 more…Looks like I will be double checking!

    14. DrUnKtAnK says:

      @sohmc: Thanks for the help!

    15. youbastid says:

      Great…I filed my taxes through TurboTax last week and spent $60. Anyone think I can get price protection refund from a Visa check card?

    16. RulesLawyer says:

      @youbastid: Same here, for $19.45 (Vanguard discount). I’m being punished for filing early? Or is there a catch that it’s “start for free” but still pay to finish? The fine print, “Prices determined at the time of print or eFile,” seems to say that free isn’t really free.

    17. Rectilinear Propagation says:

      @RulesLawyer: All but the first say “Start for Free”. Which product did you use? The one first one for simple forms that’s now the Free Edition?

    18. mamacat49 says:

      My son (income of $4000, poor high school kid) did his taxes last weekend on Turbo Tax and they tried to charge him $25 to file his state taxes (and his refund was only going to be $18). They say that it’s free for NC, but that’s not what the web site is telling us. And they are trying to make him pay to PRINT his return, just to have a copy of it. Not using TurboTax next year.

    19. mike says:

      Does anyone have a screenshot of the free file deal? I’m getting charged for it.

    20. mike says:

      @sohmc: Okay. So apparently the only way to still get this discount is to call their support line.

      1-888-777-3066 (direct to human)

      The line goes to India. Just tell them that you saw the promotion on Consumerist (they’ll ask you for the URL) and you’re confused as to why it’s asking you to pay.
