H&R Block Deluxe + State is $22.50 on Amazon today. I went ahead and bit. Might have left $5 on the table over the lowest it went last year but now I can start planning and I'm frugal not cheap.

The usual reasons (greed). We have above situation and downloaded Deluxe version always works. Wouldnít know it by reading TT literature. They tried to remove schedule D capability from Deluxe many years ago but caved to the outcry.

Newegg has the same price for this ($22.49) and deluxe without state for
$17.49 for those of you who live in an income-tax free state like me.

The state is $17.49 on Amazon... I screwed up and software and not returnable even though I didn't download... here I thought I was being cheap but I was just BTD! Last year I bought the plus state as it was cheaper than the fed only when I bought. What I get for shopping before caffeine.


In addition to SORR, one must watch out for their own stupidity in RE.

The Black Friday HRB download deal was good enough for me. Thanks for the heads up!

I also want to mention it automatically converted my "Personal" version of 365 to "Family" without any fanfare. So I get 3 months of "free" upgrade too. My subscription now runs through May 2023.

Last year I had a thread on comparing HRB to TT. At the time, I gave TT a slight edge but also walked it back a bit to mostly a tie. I think now that I have a previous year's information on HRB, it will be more useful this year.

This was a good deal. I was letting MS 365 Family just auto renew. This deal got me:
- An upgrade to the Family version
- 3 extra months
- And HRB Deluxe

... for almost exactly the same after-tax price if I let it auto-renew. Nice.

They have lowered the price to $22.49, someone must have told them what the NewEgg price is. Woo-hoo!

I need to get Premier for ESPP shares, otherwise I could use Deluxe.

I tried other tax programs for ESPP and TurboTax handles them the easiest/best. At this point, Iíll stick with them until they give me a reason not to.

I bought Premier the day after Christmas last year on Amazon. My history shows $49.42, so Iím guessing it was $45 + tax. I recall getting a $10 Amazon gift card too. I guess Iíll wait a bit longer and see if I can score a similar deal this year.

It also has a 3% refund bonus offer from Amazon. One could force a refund and get 3% return on the money in a few months

Can someone who has actually done this, explain how it works.

Thanks. I just ordered it. And I get another 5% rebate by using my Amazon Prime CC. I'll have to give some serious thought to how I will spend that extra 90Ę.

Just got it for $21.49, because they automatically applied a $1.00 "Amazon Day" discount. Never heard of it before, but I'll take it. They said the price is good for the next 15 hours.

They have a choice of download or activation by mail. The only difference I can see is that activation by mail allows returns.

I did the activation by mail before, I got a code, and then downloaded the software (seems odd way to do it).

I bought it using the activation by mail, as I had another cheap thing I wanted and don't have prime.

When I had ESPP, TT Premier was worth every cent. So I'm with you.

Last year, the day after Christmas deal netted me TT Deluxe at $29.98, although you had to buy the gift card too for an extra $10.

So I guess $15 extra is about right. Not sure since I don't need it anymore.
