An easy 1,000 Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards Points can be had by clicking through the Southwest shopping portal to signup for Turbotax.com. The details can be found here.
I use Turbotax every year to complete my taxes, and for many people it is a great option. Its user interface is run around a series of questions and if you have used the website in the past to file your returns it automatically imports a lot of information from previous years, saving you time. Even if you are a bit more sophisticated about your taxes and understand various deductions and benefits you have, Turbotax can help you easily fill out the paperwork and file more easily than trying to wade through the IRS forms.
While 1,000 Rapids Rewards points is relatively small (worth about $10 towards a Southwest flight); it is these kinds of deals, leveraging some spending you were going to do anyway by just clicking through an airline shopping portal, that can make a big difference when done regularly.
And, as I mentioned in an earlier post, if you are like most Americans and set to receive a tax refund it makes sense to get your taxes filed as soon as possible. It’s your money!
