Should I Buy Quicken 2018 BEST

According to a report released today, a record 4,316 families living in at-risk properties were able to avoid the 2018 Wayne County tax foreclosure auctions because of the efforts of the Quicken Loans Community Fund and its Neighbor to Neighbor partners. In fact, Detroit reached a 14-year low for overall property tax foreclosures. Additionally, through the Neighbor to Neighbor program, and property tax exemption workshops, there were nearly 5,750 full exemptions provided to Detroit homeowners in 2018.

Delores Orr served as a Neighbor to Neighbor canvasser with the Eastside Community Network. But, like many Detroiters, she fell into hardship and was struggling to pay her property taxes. Through the information obtained as part of her training, she was able to receive a full property tax exemption for 2018.

The Quicken Loans Community Fund believes in doing well by doing good, and taking an active role in the improvement of the cities and neighborhoods Quicken Loans team members call home. As a direct result of its efforts, 98% of Quicken Loans employees stated they feel good about the ways the Quicken Loans Community Fund contributes to the community, according to a 2018 survey by Great Place to Work.

However, as part of my work on finding a replacement for Quicken 2007, I discovered that Quicken has done themselves something of a disservice with their marketing: Quicken 2018 is not a typical software subscription, it's more of a traditional model.

Even if I stop subscribing, I'll be able to continue using Quicken 2018 (or 2019 or whatever) much the same way I use Quicken 2007 today: As a standalone app without access to online services or Quicken's support services. (Note that this doesn't apply to the Starter edition, just Deluxe and Premier. But Starter is very limited; I imagine most users will have at least Deluxe.)

I moved from Quicken 2007 to Quicken 2017 and was so disappointed, that after 18 months using it, I'm in the process of moving data back to quicken 2007. It had so many reports and other functions they simply did not bring to '17 -- I can't pull simple information for my CPA based on category reports, that show a total spend by category. I was printing out the report and adding the numbers up with a calculator!!!! And then I find the numbers are not even correct -- if an item was part of a VISA bill, it brought the entire VISA amount onto the report (not the categorized item). also gone -- QuickReport. Clearly the folks who did it just scraped the surface and did a very light version. Also annyoying, they try to sell you something every time you open the file. With NO WAY to turn it off.

You should probably give the 2018 version a trial: I find it much better than the 2007 version, especially in terms of interface and usability. They have a full money back guarantee, so there's not much to lose. Import your data file, spend a few minutes with it, and see if it's solved the issues you saw with 2017.

i have used quicken for many years; now on q 16. i will not go to subscription svc. i do not want my info stored outside my pc. i found that my two brokers (Schwab and TRPrice) have reports that give me all i need. Goodby Q in 19. floyd w

I upgraded to Quicken 2018 Premier on 12/1/18 for $47.80 with a $30 discount. $50 per year seemed high, but I was willing to pay it. My subscription auto-renewed today at the full $74.99. This is ridiculous. There were no emails with a discount for renewing early. This is another case of new customers getting a deal while loyal customers (21 years) are getting screwed. Not much I can do now. I have shut off auto-renew and plan to transition to something else before 12/1/19.

I purchased the 2018 Quicken for Home and Business in Jan of 2018, but in mid Jan my "subscription" ran out. I can no longer enter data(quickly or accurately) because they added a Pane about 2" wide on the right asking to renew my subscription (as well as a banner at the top). It squeezes the data space on the main part of the screen so that most columns are only 3 characters wide! I contacted customer service and they state that the advertisement pane CANNOT be removed!! They have "'handicapped" the program so that it is very difficult to enter new data quickly or accurately. I did not use the Download Date function. I will have to re-enter Jan and Feb in my old version and then see if access to my 2018 year of data remains available. Any other Programs available?

I've used Quicken (Mac) since 1995 and have stuck with 2007 because 2017 looked like Quicken Essentials. The old Quickens used to ask what type of account register you wanted and then they'd start one that had exactly what you needed. The registers had different colors depending on the account type: credit card, bank, investment, loan. The best part was that the people who wrote the software actually understood mutual fund investments. The action column had buy, sell, long term gain etc. There was a sharesin/cashout column and a sharesout/cashin column. There was a shareprice/commission column. These 3 columns were all interdependent and came up with a sharebalance. There isn't one other financial software that's so comprehensive in this regard. Most have a stupid cash balance column, which may be fine if you have a brokerage account. But a mutual fund account is for buying shares of mutual funds, and the cash balance should be zero. You want to reconcile the number of shares on the Quicken register with what the mutual fund company says you have. So, long story ... Are quicken 2018 registers as rational as Quicken 2007 registers? Also, can you still do a quick report for one category?

I started using q back in 2000 renewing version every two years. I have q 16 now. Agree with most of the comments that current owner is temporary and besides, having my personal financial data in internet for a hedge fund to watch is not one of my preferred options. I do not know what will do next. Quicken has been managing my finances for almost two decades. It will not be easy for me to change. I would like to see quicken going back to the stand alone version and allowing customers to decide what is best, or at least give possibility to have both alternatives. By the way, I am outside US with accounts in USD, Euro and local currency and cannot sync in app accounts in other currencies so access to internet is useless for me.

I have been a user of quicken since 1993. My purchase of that product and subsequent upgrades has been one of the best purchases I have ever made. The financial return on investment has been incredible in the larger scheme of things.

In 1993 I used to buy fast food value meals for $2.99. In 2019 they go for $10. Should I abandon everything that costs more than it did in 1993? Inflation takes its toll on our purchasing power and we have to adjust. I paid $42 for quicken 2.0 in 1993. Adjusted for inflation that cost is $75. Just got another system patch upgrade today. As long as the product continues to be improved and updated I will continue my support of Quicken.

Also be aware that if you do let your subscription expire, Quicken will now hijack about 25% of your screen real-estate for advertising (not applicable to QM2017 and older). Quicken has determined that this is the price to pay if you let your subscription expire! If you disagree with this business decision, you can add your VOTE to: Quicken Inc should eliminate or at least minimize the LARGE Advertising space used when a subscription expires -inc-should-eliminate-or-minimize-the-large-popup-with-expiration-101-legacy-votes/p1

I have used Quicken since 1995. A couple years ago I had 2015 and found out they didn't support the sync after 3 yrs and so I looked around and did not want to do the subscription so I bought 2017 and am now coming up on that decision again in 2020. The Quicken subscription "deals" look OK but expire after the two years. I was interested in the bill pay being included but then found out it was only "free" in the Premium and above and I only need Deluxe. My question is that I understand after the expiration that the sync no longer works but does the direct download from the bank or CC no longer work either? If the financial institution (FI) allows a download to a .qfx file (an executable file) that when opened downloads to quicken. Technically it is not syncing to the bank. Will that no longer work in 2017? I can get by the bill pay and go to the bank bill pay function but not having the download would be extremely time consuming. Dave

Just keep in mind that any expired version of Quicken Subscription leads to a large section your screen being taken up by Quicken advertisement (mostly for renewal reminders, etc) (see my previous post just above: -2018s-subscription-isnt-really-a-subscription/#comment-15348

2 points to be aware of - QIF import only works with Quicken for Windows. There is no longer any QIF import functionality in the Mac version - propersoft software are good alternatives, as are others like it. That said, be aware of what Quicken has down with QIF imports, as I pointed out in my earlier post here: -2018s-subscription-isnt-really-a-subscription/#comment-15403 . They are not handled like they used to be. :-\

I have quicken 2017 which is the last version before they went to a supposed subscription model. I choose not to purchase their subscription. I accept that I can no longer directly download from financial institutions, but I can no longer manually import into it either. The latest update blocks it and pops up a message forcing me to upgrade and "buy" their subscription. The version I bought is supposed to be a perpetual license and they are screwing individuals.

Quicken 2019 and newer and QuickBooks 2018 and newer are supported. If you use a third-party financial app or software provider, contact them to see which versions are compatible with these file types.

Quicken 2018 is not currently working in Crossover. We are aware of this issue and are working on getting to run. If you want be notified when it is working submit a ticket -us#support and asked to be added to Bug 15581 so that we can notify you once Quicken 2018 is working. 041b061a72
