This week in deals: Save 40% on H&R Block At Home Online

Tax time! If you haven't done your taxes, what are you waiting for? Perhaps, a killer deal? I actually have a couple of those waiting for you below.

While I'm not trying to stress you out, you're only 6 days away from the deadline. Stop procrastinating and get yourself to file because after it's said and done, you'll feel so much lighter for doing it, even if you owe money (well, I did).

Unlike me, I hope you get some money back from Uncle Sam! It's like Christmas all over again and think about all the things you could do with that extra money.

To jump start your tax filing duties, I've got 5 great deals that will get you going: 

Deal #1:

Deal #2: If your brand loyal on your tax return company, I've got another deal for you. Right now, get 15% off all online editions by using this coupon from TurboTax. I use to use TurboTax before my taxes got really complicated and the process was seemless and very easy. Expires 4/12/2013.

Deal #4: It seems that most of my friends stock up on beauty products during the Spring time. It might be because after Spring cleaning they've got nothing left. With this coupon from ULTA Beauty, you can save $3.50 on orders over $10. This offer is perfect for a small purchase. Expires 2/23/2014.
