Didn’t get much response out of the other Quicken thread in OT so I thought I start a thread.
I have used Quicken for a long, long time. Initially, I tried to track “everything” with it but I learned quickly that more trouble than it’s worth so these days I only use Quicken for tracking my checking and credit card accounts. Recently I learned that Quicken is going to a subscription model and even now in my 2016 version it required to “log in” the online Quicken account every once a while for no good reason. After all the crap that intuit tries to pull over the years this is the last straw. I’ll be done with Quicken once it no longer can importing of downloaded transactions.
Now that I think about it with more urgency of a forced transition, there are nice thing I got used to, such as looking up a transaction I had 5 years ago, see how much $ I charge to certain CC X years ago, etc… Having said that, I’m really using it as a gloried register which I found a lot of other older Quicken users do as well, judging by the response I see. Sure, I can use a dump spreadsheet but it’s nice to download transactions per statement and click on each item to reconcile it. I may end up with a spreadsheet anyway but I thought I ask the hive here.
