Received an email this AM inviting me to complete my federal and state tax return for free using H&R Block Online through the Capital One site. I was planning to use Credit Karma again this year until this deal came around.

What type of account?
It doesn't say what specific accounts it applies to. I have a credit card account and a savings account (from ING Direct when Capital One bought them out). I haven't used the credit card in years, so that doesn't seem to be a factor. When I log in to the site, there's an option to "file my taxes for free" right after I log in.

This is the text of the email:

File your state and federal tax returns with H&R Block—and Capital One® will pick up the filing fee!

Just sign in to Capital One—mobile or online—and get access to H&R Block's Premium tax prep experience that's simple, secure and backed by H&R Block's maximum refund guarantee. All at no cost to you.

Just chatted with them, doesn't seem to apply to me as a Credit card holder, my email from Capital one today just offered me $200 to put $10,000 in a Money Market account. So, its probably for people with other types of accounts, not credit cards.

I only have a Credit card with Capital One. Once logged in, I see an icon to start my H&R block state and federal returns (premium version) and Capital one claiming they will pay for it but will use my tax information for improvements in product offering. Sounds weird to me on that claim

When you;'re on H&R website, after creating an account, it'll have this ominous option:
Quote :
I authorize H&R Block* to disclose to Capital One my Social Security number and income information used for my 2017 tax return so Capital One may provide me personalized evaluations regarding credit odds and limits and provide me offers. I also authorize H&R Block to disclose to Capital One information from my 2017 tax return necessary to service, maintain, report on, and administer my participation in this offer and the tax preparation application.

Not seeing it on my account either, I just have a savings account with Capital One. I chatted with CSR and they don't see the promo in their system for me at least.
