    LUCYHANY - I would be very careful with that. There is no way to complete a tax return without giving enough information for someone to steal your identity. I always buy the Turbotax CD and file my own taxes online. Good Luck.

    Ugh life with a child!!!! We just purchased a laptop in Sept (Rae spilled juice on the first one) and Rae strikes again and spills more juice on the less than 6 month old laptop!!!! I thought I saw a commercial about laptops being on sale this weekend......please tell me someone else saw that commercial too. Looks like I'll be out shopping for a laptop tomorrow :-(

    I was trying to find coupons for online tax software like turbotax or H&R Block and found that some websites like have 20%-50% coupons. when I clicked on that it did not give a coupons code. it instead transferred me to the software preparing vendor website that showed the original price ticked off and the price after discount showing. My husbanded is not a coupons person and he is worried that this may be a scam or fishing website and afraid from Identity theft. My question are these coupons are legitimate or not? and if there is a risk of identity theft in this process? any body have answer so I can re assure my husband that he can use these offers?

    FYI - the Harris Teeter on Tryon and Walnut has a number of grocery carts with marked down bath and beauty products. I picked up Herbal Essences shampoo and hair sprays marked down to $1.34 minus the $2/2 coupon from 12/14 SS making them .34 each. Also found Pantene shampoo for $1.63 and used a $2/1 coupon I had been sent with a sample recently, making it free. There was still a good amount of the Pantene marked down, but only a couple Herbal Essences. The carts are near the energy/protein bars and bath and beauty section.

    Here's a redbox code good only online and maybe the app. It doesn't appear to work at the kiosk (I tried it at HT, but no go). Thanks to Hip2Save for this one, 1299HHNN
