TurboTax Service Codes on Reddit?
Service codes are issued directly by TurboTax support and are intended for use by specific customers. However, sometimes you can find them posted on Reddit.com like this:
So, is this the best way to get a discount on your order? Probably not!
We have tried many of the service codes posted on Reddit in 2019-2020, and have still not found a single one that works! Why is that?
Tip: We do not recommend using TurboTax service codes from Reddit, as they do not pertain to your specific order or account, and are therefor probably invalid.
It seems that most Reddit users who claim to be posting service codes are simply posting an affiliate link in an attempt to get credit for your purchase of TurboTax. Let’s look closely at the so-called “service codes” on Reddit:
As we mentioned, service codes expire on Oct. 15th of the year they were issued, so anything posted in 2019 is clearly expired or invalid.
As you can tell, the other links don’t include a code of any sort, and it seems like they are just trying to get you to click on their affiliate link.
Conclusion: Skip TurboTax Promo Codes on Reddit!
So, my advice is to skip Reddit service codes, and just click a sanctioned discount including ours or one of the other partner discounts that you qualify for!
