Fidelity has terminated the free offer and replaced it with only a $15 off. If you have already signed up to Premier and found stuck with the $34.99 charge (check under /Tools/My Fee), you can start a chat with TurboTax and explain the situation. They will issue you a code to eliminate the charge. There are several posts in this thread showing the same result already.

https://www.fidelity.com/premier
Didn't work in Chrome or IE, worked in Firefox. Opens up the Intuit webpage in a new window, with a clear summary showing Deluxe= $19.99, Premier = FREE.
It appears we need to go through the first link. The "direct link" doesn't work. [Removed direct link since it depends on a request id set when you are redirected from the Fidelity site]

Per BrittanyR3049 (please Rep her in post 25)
If you are getting the no response issue, in Chrome I had to click the gray shield symbol on the right side of the address bar and click "load anyway." Then the page will reload and the link will work. It is a pop-up that says you are leaving the Fidelity website. - fletch113


You can get this free even if you don't have any money currently in Fidelity. My wife stopped working for her employer over 3 years ago, transferred her retirement, and we used her log in to get the free tax prep. I could have used my login, but I was lazy with finding the credentials. Used hers, and we're slick done with our taxes tonight. Thanks! ~ Standupdad

I just signed up for Fidelity Trading account just to get this deal. Took 10 minutes for signup. No annual fee. After I logged into the URL mentioned above, I got the FREE Turbotax premium. ~Katthibabu

Something else, when you used to login to your account earlier, it used to display Fidelity on the top right corner. Now, the turbo tax page just has a brown border with no Fidelity logo. I wonder if Fidelity withdrew the offer.

meh tried chatting and the CSR basically said that the offer is expired and didn't offer a promo code.

rather funny that it costs more to use their website than it does if I purchased a CD.

Fidelity withdrew the offer although it still shows that info on their website. Now I go back to my TT page and it shows only my other financial institute I started the TT Deluxe for free earlier. I had upgraded to Premier while Fidelity was offering it for free. Now they leave no mark of Fidelity anywhere on TT. I just sent them a message to complain.

Now they changed their page on tax preparation offer to "Save up to $20". With links at that page, I can entered the TT site with Fidelity logo, but I think I'll be charged with the new price when submit for efiling.

If I did most of my return and just need to submit for efile with this offer, I am still good to go no charge. Can anyone confirm?

fark Fidelity dude. Why don't they hire better programmers that know how to create unique links? Now you have a huge customer service nightmare that has turned people off to two companies - Fidelity AND Intuit.

Smooth. VERY smooth.

Well it worked initially...went back today and was showing $34.99. Contacted Customer Service via Chat on Turbo Tax and they quickly gave me a code to zero out the cost. Came out free and I'm happy. Big Grin

Mr.Slausen & Fletch113: Can you please elaborate on the code they give you? Is it like a one-time use code or something they tie into your acct that can only be used by you? Does it have to be used right away?

I'd love to try to do this but can't file yet because most of the reported tax stuff hasn't arrived yet, so I'm hoping I can get a code that can be used when I'm ready to file.

Got a code after chatting with a nice guy over in India. Seems like the code they give you can be entered without having to finish your filing yet. So, it will allow you to enter the code and then go back and finish your return.

The code is a "service code" which you enter on one of the final screens before filing. It takes care of the Turbo Tax Premier fee & federal e-file fee, in my case I only paid $27 which was my state fee. I imagine its one time use only since they told me to hold on while they generated the code. I used mine right away so I can't say for sure if there is an expiration. Its worth chatting with them to see.

They tried to BS me with that, they are wrong. When you click the OPs link then sign into your Fidelity acct, one of the first lines is "To thank our most valued customers, we're offering free TurboTax Online Premier, including complimentary federal online e-filing. "

You can't send them the link since its customer only web address and you can't send a screenshot through chat but they took my word for it. Just reiterate my above paragraph to them.
