    Intuit Proconnect Free software offer

    I received a "credit card looking" thing with an offer for Free ProSeries if I sign up by 11/30/2017 and do refund transfers.

    Anyone else receive this offer? What is involved? What is the catch?

    Sounds like

    1 - A trial.

    2 - a scam (TRICK or TREAT)

    Call intuit to find out details if real offer

      Intuit Proconnect is not ProSeries. It's Intuits cloud based tax software.

        What is a "credit card looking" thing?

        As Kathy mentioned, does it say "ProSeries", or just "ProConnect"? I suspect whatever they are offering is a limited version or limited number of returns.

        Although the term ProConnect is most often used with the Online tax software, Intuit rebranded everything so Lacerte and ProSeries now fall under the "ProConnect" group.

          The credit card looking this is a piece of plastic with my name and a bunch of serial #s. There is a valid from and expiry date. The letter with that says I must register by 11/30/2017 to get the free software! The card says both Intuit Proconnect and ProSeries.

          Because there is a lack of disclosure (there is no free lunch), I am very suspicious of what the offer really is. They could have disclosed that in order to get the free software you must commit to X refund transfers valued at $X, or something like that.

          I wanted to hear from other folks who have used this offer and what is the catch?

            If you

            If you "Because there is a lack of disclosure (there is no free lunch),". Don't you think you should contact Intuit or rather get more guesses from reply posters?

              Not everything is a scam or a hack.

              At this time of year, a lot of businesses are offering limited/"old" versions of their software to include tax prep, bank services, and similar.

              Call it professional junk mail (likely sent to same address as your PTIN record?) and treat it accordingly.

              FWIW, the Intuit folks have always been aggressive in sending you trial software in hopes of reeling you in. . . The most common is to let you "convert" your 2016 files to their software. . .and then you're ready to buy the 2017 product later on.

              As for "lack of disclosure" that is something that should have been addressed with the mailing (was there a web link given?) or by contacting the product provider for any remaining questions.

                I did link to the web address in the letter and it basically took me to the Intuit website and compared their tax prep products with their competitors. I could not find the fine print for this particular offer. There is a toll free # to call a rep. but since I am satisfied with my software I am not interested in switching at this time.

                I was more curious if others have received the same offer and if they signed up for it.

                  I do not offer bank products and none of my clients have ever been interested in these, so I tossed my offer in the shredder. I assume when you sign up, you will agree to do a certain number of them and pay the difference if you do not achieve those goals. That is how most of these offers generally work. Again, I did not read the document, I just fed it to my shredder.

                    That is exactly what I ended up doing after I could not find the fine print at their website!
