Citi is making tax season a little more rewarding thanks to a $20 statement credit for TurboTax. The new, limited-time promotion seeks to help alleviate any stress around accounting for planned (or unplanned) changes to finances because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Save Up to $20 On Tax Prep with Citi ThankYou Rewards
The coronavirus has added an extra layer of stress to tax season – already a period of worry for millions of Americans. The pandemic has altered personal finances in many unforeseen ways, meaning the 2021 tax season will likely be one of the most confusing on record for filers.
Citi is seeking to help alleviate those concerns by offering statement credits for ThankYou Rewards cardmembers. Eligible Citi ThankYou Rewards cardholders can now save up to $20 on their tax preparation software with TurboTax through the April 15th tax deadline.
In addition, eligible cardmembers (including those with a Citi Prestige, Citi Premier and Citi Rewards+ card) who opt to pay for TurboTax with PayPal will also have the option to redeem ThankYou Points when checking out to pay for all or part of their purchase.
