Never file more than one return using the same account in TurboTax Online.  Doing so will overwrite the original return you prepared.  You will need to create a separate account (a maximum of 5 accounts can link to one email address) and pay for each return you file using TurboTax Online.  

In the future, it may be a better option for you to purchase the TurboTax CD/Download software, which allows you to file up to 5 federal returns at no additional cost.  https://ttlc.intuit.com/replies/3288574

So since I was not aware of how this works, is there anyway to get a refund and then get the CD. I really don't have $300 to pay for a software program to do my taxes

Why are you filing separate returns instead of filing a joint return with your spouse?  Joint is almost always better.
