Win a Free iPod Touch From H&R Block

This giveaway is now closed to new entries. Thanks to everyone who has participated. We will be selecting the winners shortly.

It’s time for another giveaway. H&R Block wants to give an iPod Touch to two Consumerism Commentary readers. The iPods will be delivered with an app pre-installed to help taxpayers as we approach the final filing stretch.

The strongest feature of the “H&R Block Tax Answers App,” available here from the Apple store, is the ability to get personalized answers to your tax questions. When using the app, your iPhone or iPod Touch with WiFi is connected directly to H&R Block’s Get it Right Community, with 1,000 tax experts on hand. In general, you will receive your response, for free, within 24 hours.

Other features include a glossary so you can quickly get a definition for an unfamiliar tax term and a quiz where you can test your tax knowledge.

H&R Block Tax AnswersAs you can see from the Tax Answers app’s main menu, you can also use this program to locate the nearest H&R Block office. If nothing else, you can use this for a scavenger hunt or you can check with your friends to see who has the most locations in a ten-mile radius of his or her home.

As I’ve mentioned before, an independent tax accountant completes my tax return. If you have a simple tax situation, many online tools are available. H&R Block’s At Home is the company’s re-branding of TaxCut, and other perennial favorites include Intuit’s TurboTax and TaxACT. All of these options offer free federal filing for taxpayers in certain situations.

How to win a free iPod Touch

I’m going to keep this simple. If you would like to be entered in the giveaway to win one of two iPod Touch devices, leave a comment here. If you want two extra chances, follow @luke_landes on Twitter and link to this giveaway on Twitter with the following phrase:

Win a free iPod Touch from @luke_landes and @ConsumerismComm! http://bit.ly/d5r1BS

You must enter by 11:59 EDT on Friday, March 19, 2010. Two winners will be chosen randomly from among the respondents within a few days of the giveaway’s end. As always, only one set of entries (comment and Twitter) per name or IP address is allowed.

Now for some fine print. H&R Block is providing the iPod Touch devices directly to Consumerism Commentary readers. The software is being provided independently of any other H&R Block reviews posted on Consumerism Commentary. Consumerism Commentary is an authorized affiliate of H&R Block.

This giveaway is now closed to new entries. Thanks to everyone who has participated. We will be selecting the winners shortly.

avatar Luke Landes

Those who participate receive either one (if they leave a comment) or three (if they leave a comment, follow on Twitter, and retweet) sequential numbers. I remove entries that do not follow the rules listed above by looking for comments with the same IP address. There is no consideration for two different people using the same public computer or the same proxy server. I will see this as the same IP address and subsequent entries will be disqualified. The random number generator at random.org is used to select two random numbers. I’ll contact the winners privately. Consumerism Commentary is an authorized affiliate through Commission Junction.
