Save up to 50% on life insurance.

And the Winners are and Random Thoughts

in Random Thoughts, Turbotax

For those wondering, yes I did give out those TurboTax on-line licenses to some deserving folks. I was impressed with over 25 folks wanting the 5 licenses I had (but then the odds were pretty good, less than 1 chance in 5).

Here at the comments of the winners, all very good and I added one from the loser pile, which I enjoyed as well:

  • I want online Turbotax for free because I deserve free presents for Valentine’s Day.
  • I want online Turbotax for free because my wife is expecting Twins in April and every penny counts!
  • Nothing is free in life but I will gladly take a copy of turbo tax.
    I will advertise at our local seniors center to do a minimum of 5 tax returns with my almost free copy of Turbo Tax.
  • I want TurboTax for free because we have moved provinces and I don’t have a lot of time to figure out the different system of tax reporting here with a baby and toddler running circles around me all day! I would really appreciate the help from TurboTax!
  • I want Turbo Tax for free because I’ve been wasting money using HR Block for years and I’m sick of it.

The notable loser’s reason was quite good too: I don’t want TurboTax. I use Studiotax for free already. It’s easy to use, and fits my budget. I used to use Intuit products, but they kept raising prices. Zing!

Weekly Recap

Not just a week of love day, and giveaways, but a great deal of ranting about the cost of safety deposit boxes:

And thanks to those who added me on Twitter I am now over 1000 folks who follow me, holy cow! Check out my facebook page as well (but no I won’t be buying Facebook stock because of this either).

Links for the Week

Valentine’s Day Sentiments to Live By

Remember my RSS feed is available too, for those who enjoy reading without looking at my crappy page lay out, and I have added an RSS Comment Feed as well.

Have a look at my micro-blog on Twitter, where you can see a whole plethora of good articles and pithy comments by me as well. Twitter feed where I re-tweet many great articles by some of my featured writers (and make the occasional odd or off colour commentary on life (in 140 characters or less)). I am also on Digg as Big Cajun Man, on reddit, Tumblr and other Social Media sites (look for the BigCajunMan userid) as well.

If you have social media accounts, don’t forget to vote for my posts (see the nifty dashboard on the bottom of each article, where you can cast your votes). As they say in Quebec, vote early and vote often!

This site is iPhone Friendly (and Android , iPod Touch and iPad Friendly), enjoy it on the go, in a readable format for the device. If you are reading with an iPhone or Android device, drop me a comment and tell me if this needs any improvements. This site is also in the Kindle US Blog list, if you are interested, not available in Canada yet (because no Blogs are available in Canada on a Kindle?!?).

    BCM, thx for the mention. Being the financial guy I am, the only link I opened was the Valentines day sex link. What a funny blog post.

      Hence why I added it, anything to do with SEX in a set of financial posts will always get people’s attention…
