Something seems odd – but it may just be me, and I have a low balance at fidelity. From my offer, which was ‘up to’ (famous last words) $20.00 off, I was directed to Fidelity’s Turbo Tax site which stated that Turbo Tax Premier, which is the version I would use, was $54.00, instead of $69.00 (list price), so that is $15.00 off that is true – however: The state is not included. State is an additional $39, for a total of $93.00 for Federal + 1 State.
Amazon (and I try to purchase from somewhere else if I can, just for comparison) is $69.00 for both premier and 1 state. So it seems to be $24.00 cheaper to just get it without involving having your tax info from Fidelity automatically included / linked to Turbo Tax, which is what seems to happen if you login to accept Fidelity’s Turbo Tax offer.
Anyway – I am not a high-value Fidelity customer, so clearly I did not get the free offer. I am curious, though, if that ‘free’ offer was for Federal only, or included the State? Kind of sneaky, it seems to me, since it seems that the State is overpriced if not bundled and makes up for some of the cost of the free/discounted Federal product.
My two cents.
