Why is the download version of TT Business more expensive than the disc version?

After I purchased the CD, I saw the download price for both Mac and PC matched the lower CD price (for about 12 hours), and also included a $10 Amazon gift card... would have been a great deal for anyone who purchased the download at that time. Perhaps such a deal will return.

This is asinine. I'd prefer the digital download but if I need to buy the physical copy to save money I will buy from a brick & mortar just to make the point.

I think Amazon needs a better referral system. My thoughts are, they did not do a self comparison check. Download should be equal or lower than the disk.

Amazon sets the retail price of the TurboTax products it sells. For now, it looks like the Amazon price for TurboTax Premier + State [PC/Mac Disc] is discounted.

In other words, Amazon must compete with other sellers (Costco, Walmart, etc.) on the disk version, but they can jack the price up on the download version since these retailers do not offer that option.

Today, amzn are selling CD for 55, and download for 70. Makes no sense to me.

Am buying the CD, Intiut you profit/margin will be less. You should figure out an arrangement that makes better financial sense for Customers, amzn and Intiut.
