This year I’d like to occasionally talk more about finances and how building a balanced, healthy life includes building a healthy financial foundation. It’s hard to eat right and take care of yourself when you are drowning in debt or constantly worried about finances.
I’m not a financial expert and I’m not rich, but I have paid off almost $30K in credit card and student loan debt and pay close attention to my finances. It’s helped my life tremendously to be debt free. I’ve been able to eliminate a lot of stress, anxiety, and worry from achieving a level of financial stability where I don’t have to worry about being in debt. For this reason, I hope to give a few financial tips and ideas when they come along during the year!
This tip for an extra 10% on your refund actually came along from multiple other blogs I read about personal finance and I figured I’d share with you all since you might not read blogs about money (they can be boring and repetitive).
10% Tax Refund Bonus From Amazon
This cool deal comes from a team up between Amazon and TurboTax. I do my own taxes (even though there are 3 accountants in my family) and I always use Turbo Tax since it makes the process easy and efficient. This year they are running a promotion through Amazon that is pretty awesome:
Basically, if you downloads TurboTax through Amazon.com rather than another source like the TurboTax website, you have the opportunity to use part of your refund to get an Amazon gift card.
For example, if you get a $2,000 refund on your taxes, when you download TurboTax from Amazon.com with the bonus you get to select some of those funds for the bonus. You can choose $500 from your tax refund to go into an Amazon.com gift card and you’ll get a 10% bonus of $50!
It’s hard to pass up free money, so if you already planned to do your own taxes and use TurboTax, I recommend taking advantage of this promotion. If you shop a lot on Amazon like I do then it’s a pretty sweet deal to get money you can instantly use and get a bonus as well.

You can get any version of TurboTax and depending on which one you get you’ll still get a great deal from Amazon. If you just need TurboTax basic you will still get a 5% refund offer deal but every other TurboTax offers 10% refund bonus.
Hopefully this helps some of you out. It was too good of a deal not to share. :)
