Intuit Quicken Premier 2009 & TurboTax Packs Giveaway

Email  Print Print  

When Intuit offered up three copies each of Quicken Premier 2009 and TurboTax, I jumped at the chance to give away more free stuff to you all. We’re deep into tax season and with the economy where it is, I’m sure everyone is looking for a little edge. Intuit’s been very generous with Bargaineering readers, already I’ve given away two copies of Quicken Premier 2009, one to a forum participant and another to a commenter in the Your Take question on money management software.

The Quicken Premier 2009 and TurboTax Packs contain a CD containing Quicken Premier 2009 and a pre-paid access card to TurboTax Deluxe (both federal and state!) edition. Quicken Premier has a retail value of $80 and TurboTax Deluxe, federal and state, is worth at least $65 – so these packs are worth almost a hundred and fifty dollars!

So, how do you win? It’s easy.

I have three “packs” and so we’ll be doing a three way giveaway:

  • First way: Leave a comment here, bonus points if you tell a joke worth of a laffy taffy wrapper. Only one entry per person.
  • Second way: Subscribe to the RSS feed (here’s an explanation of what RSS is) and email me the special secret phrase at the bottom of each of the posts. The email address is contest at bargaineering dot com.
  • Third way: Leave a comment on this forum post explaining how you plan on celebrating the end of tax season!

If you have already done your taxes and just want a copy of Quicken, please say so. That way, should you win, I can give the free copy of TurboTax to another reader. Thanks!

I will close the contest at noon eastern on March 10th and randomly select one winner from each of the groups – commenters, emailers, and forum participants.

The contest will end in a week at noon Eastern on March 10th, good luck! Void where prohibited.

Thanks to all who entered, the contest has ended and the winners have been notified.

    I’d LOVE to win this. We have Quicken from 2006 and they’re making me upgrade to keep my online banking. This would be a great help.

    Unfortunately, my jokes are usually terrible. So instead of telling a joke…

    I’d ask that I’d be considered for this giveaway. I just recently graduated from college and have made significant financial mistakes. A program like Quicken will help me out to lower some of the high-interest loans and credit card debt that I have. (Nearly $20,000, yikes!) Not to mention regular bills and lower-interest student loans…

    Hi Anthony,

    This is Chelsea from Quicken. Oddly enough, I just received an email from a writer looking to interview someone in your exact situation (new grad paying down debt). If you’re interested, contacted me at and I will connect the two of you.

    Glad to see so much interested in the contest Jim, wow!

    – Chelsea, Quicken

    not good at jokes, but I will give it a shot…

    Knock, knock…

    Hoping Who…
    Hoping to be Blessed with that quicken software to get my taxes done!

    Laugh, you know you want too….be blessed!
    I have never done my taxes on my own, but this contest is encouraging me to take a shot at it!

    A family of tomatoes was walking one day when the baby tomato started lagging behind. The father tomato walks back to the baby tomato, stomps on her, squashing her into a red paste, and says, “Ketchup!”

    Ouch. bad joke. sorry.
    But I’d have time to come up with better jokes if I wasn’t doing my taxes by hand…


  8. Marie says:

  9. Gil says:

    I’ve been spreadsheeting it for a while, would really like to dive into a better option.

    as for the joke.

    There are three kinds of people: those who can count and those who can’t…

    Now you know why I need the software.

  10. Matt says:
