RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Samsung Electronics America and Jackson
Hewitt Tax Service® are partnering to help customers buy a
big screen TV in time for the big game. Samsung is offering a $50 rebate
check on a qualifying Samsung TV, exclusively for Jackson Hewitt
customers. Jackson Hewitt is promoting the Samsung offer to its clients
across its 6,000 locations nationwide.
Jackson Hewitt is also making Express Refund Advance, a no fee, 0% APR
loan offered by MetaBank®, available to clients looking to bridge the
gap. Approved clients may receive up to $1,300 the same day they
complete their taxes with Jackson Hewitt. This promotion is important
this year as millions of taxpayers may experience refund delays.
“Buying a TV is a major purchase and by partnering with Jackson Hewitt,
we are able to give new customers a discount on a TV they may have
always wanted in time for the big game,” said Chris Haimbach, Vice
President of Sales at Samsung Electronics America. “Having the right TV
brings the game to life, and our lineup offers superlative picture
quality and brightness performance to deliver the most lifelike picture.”
To receive a rebate check for $50, consumers need to file their tax
returns at any Jackson Hewitt location before April 18, 2017 and
purchase a qualifying Samsung Television before April 23, 2017. Then,
they submit a claim form at www.Samsungpromotions.com/taxtime
before April 30, 2017.
“Jackson Hewitt clients are hardworking Americans who often plan to make
specific purchases with their tax refund, including new TVs,” said David
Prokupek, Co-CEO of Jackson Hewitt. “We’re excited to partner with
Samsung and offer an additional $50 rebate for this special purchase.”
Terms and conditions apply to all offers. To learn more visit www.JacksonHewitt.com/Samsung.
The Express Refund Advance is a tax-related refund loan provided by
MetaBank (it is not the actual tax refund). Available for a limited time
and at participating locations. The amount of the advance will be
deducted from tax refunds and reduce the amount that is paid directly to
the taxpayer. Tax returns may be filed electronically without applying
for this loan. Availability is subject to satisfaction of identity
verification, eligibility criteria, application, approval, underwriting
standards, and other terms and conditions. Only $200-$400 available with
a paystub (or other acceptable pre-year-end income verification), and
remaining amounts available with W-2 and upon filing tax return with the
IRS. IRS delays may affect the delivery timing of loan proceeds.
Disbursement rules apply. Funds loaded onto card within an hour and
direct deposit next business day. Ask Tax Pro for details. Available at
participating locations only.
