I hate to bring this up but it is time to start thinking about tax season.

The bottom line
I took advantage of this offer last year and earned 1000 Southwest points worth approximately 17 USD for doing what I was planning on doing anyways. I wouldn’t go out of my way to use Turbotax if I was satisfied with another online tax service but if you do plan to use their product, be sure to collect these easy points!
