Kickoff to the Ultimate Big Game Party Starts Now with a Little Help from Samsung and Jackson Hewitt®

RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J.--()--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 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.”

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.
