May I know what country you're trying to subscribe for 1499? Or can you please share more information on this? This way, I can provide more details about the pricing depending on the country you're subscribing.
As I can see, the country you tagged in your post is India. If you're trying to subscribe to QuickBooks Online for India, the pricing for this will be ₹529/month + 18% GST. This price is already discounted 50% off for three (3) months. After the discounted price, it'll be back to its original price for ₹1059/month.
