Bargain of the Week

TurboTax Deluxe (includes federal efile and prep for one state return)- $39.99

Amazon is offering TurboTax Deluxe for $39.99 -- that is $20 off the full price. This was done likely to match Costco's coupon price. Typically, once a tax season, Costco offers $10 off TurboTax, and that sale is going on now with the coupon from their January booklet. That brings their net price down to $39.99. Note: the Amazon and Costco offers do NOT include other free software that is offered by office superstores.
