Quicken had a protocol where you would need to update about every 36 months (maybe a bit more). If you didn’t upgrade you lost the ability to automatically download from your credit cards. So it was about $50 every three years to upgrade. Now if I wanted to be frugal I would have just downloaded the files from each site and imported them.</p>During a three year cycle, the annual subscription fee is equivalent to a 300% increase. Nope – I won’t do it. Quicken will not get a dime from me for any future upgrades and I will go back to the manual downgrade / import of the files. I sincerely hope that Quicken shot themselves in the foot with the fee scheme. problem 3 4 1 comment http://m.getsatisfaction.com/topics/7737326/replies/19530411 http://m.getsatisfaction.com/topics/7737326 19530411 splasher responded to "I will no longer support future upgrade versions" 2018-05-18T11:10:37Z 2018-05-18T11:10:37Z splasher http://m.getsatisfaction.com/people/2941081 https://d2r1vs3d9006ap.cloudfront.net/public/uploaded_images/10943428/sherlock_puppy_avatar_medium.jpg oldsplasher <blockquote>"Quicken will not get a dime from me for any future upgrades and I will go back to the manual downgrade / import of the files.

The list price for the three year program then was $74.99, but was often on sale for $50 or less, and even lower when bundled with TurboTax.<br />“This is a pure money grab by Quicken’s new owners,” commented Consumer World founder Edgar Dworsky. “The original intentional crippling of the software after three years was bad enough, but now reducing it to just one year in essence triples the cost for many, and will drive away thousands of users.”"<br /><br />I predict that this is not going to end well for Quicken.<br /><br /><a href="https://www.mouseprint.org/2017/11/06/quicken-2018/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwmouseprintorg/2017/11/06/quicken-2018/">https://www.mouseprint.org/2017/11/06/quicken-2018/</a> 0
