TaxAct Price Lock not being honored

When I filed the 2015 return with TaxAct, I opted in for the "price lock" offer for the 2016 return, at $10 for Premium. I recall that that lock properly appeared in my account, and I left a memo to myself separately. Today I've logged in to my account to start the 2016 return, and now I see $27.99. It properly indicates that it was created in April 2016, but conveniently without any mentioning the price lock. I wonder where and how it got lost. Should I have paid the locked price last year? I don't recall I was asked to do so though. Anyone having this issue with TaxAct?

I am very confused. It says it's 0, but when I add a state it's $33. I don't think I've ever paid more than $18 for it and I've used TaxAct for about 10 years.

I had a problem with a price lock. I was being charged a higher price.

I just contacted customer service by e-mail and they took care of issue without any problem.   Customer service was outstanding.

freetaxusa only charges for the state, mine was $12.95 with efile, it came up with almost the exact same numbers as HRBlock, I didn't want to pay the $30 something extra they wanted for state

Seeing the same issue - contacted customer service and awaiting resolution. The $10 deal should have been locked in - disappointed to have to go through this hassle. TaxAct has really had issues over the past few years. The whole filing process is irritating enough - no need to stoke the fire any more than necessary!
