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.

    My joke will be a quote from 30 Rock, which I KNOW you watch!

    Tracy Morgan’s character on Larry King Live, about the financial crisis (or “30 Rock” equivalent):

    Tracy: I’d like to play devil’s avocado, here Larry, I think people should freak-the-geek out! With drawl all our money, and hide it!
