Quicken 2014 e-mail upgrade offer?

I received a quicken upgrade offer for 50% off via e-mail.

URLs in e-mail looks as if it is from Quicken, but wanted to be sure this is an official promotion and not a Phishing attempt.

(Would be nice to see special offers when logged on to my quicken account)...

Anyone else see this promo and purchase successfully?

(I'm currently on Quicken 2012)

I believe it is a real Quicken offer.  I just tried it the link and it did take me into Quicken.  When I logged in the order info was present in my cart.  My problem is, even thought the offer is for 50% off, sale price of $37.50, no matter what I do It continues to charge me the full $79.99 price, and does not discount the order.  And, yes, I did go through the email as it said it is necessary.  So, no upgrade for me.
  • Contact Customer Support and get them to sell it to you for the email's advertised price.
  • Thanks!  Actually have now been on hold with Intuit for the last 9 minutes, since your reply.  "all representatives are currently busy"  Of course they are.  hahaha
  • 27 minutes on hold. have finally answered and taken my info for email price of $37.50. now back on hold waiting for
    "download link"
  • OK!  42 minutes, but the 2014 Deluxe version has been installed.  Thanks and good luck to anyone else
  • on hold for 37 mins.
