Rebate Rejected

Peter G., Newegg
7 May 2014
  • Summary: Will no longer buy Quicken combined with Turbo Tax to avoid future disappointment.
  • Pros: I use Quicken and Turbo Tax exclusively
  • Cons: Bought Quicken 2014 Deluxe and Turbo Tax 2014 Deluxe. Submitted rebate and got rejected. Very disappointed -- bought Quicken due to the combo rebate.

Better than I thought

Edward S., Newegg
10 March 2014
  • Summary: I used Quicken way back in the late '80s when it first appeared. Or was it the early '90s? Don't remember - been so long ago. However, when MS Money by Microsoft first appeared a few years later, I tried it and switched and have used it up to now, far after Microsoft abandoned it but allowed...
  • Pros: All in one automatic account updates (or individual if one wants that), memorizes vendors, converts MS Money data to its format while leaving the original MS Money file available to use by it. Many options available to setup Quicken the way the customer would like. Allows customer feedback via it...
  • Cons: The customer user interface could be better and Quicken, in general, could be more customer friendly in the way it functions. It's more complex in design than first appears and does have some specific shortcomings that should be addressed, and these should be done in a way that appeases their cus...

Ransomware

Computer D., Newegg
1 March 2014
  • Summary: read their "Discontinuation Policy" at newquicken.com/policy
  • Pros: Very good Money management program.
  • Cons: If you use the bill pay system or any of the "connected services" they MAKE you update every few years. Hence the “ransomware” tag. I would think a simple update would be sufficient to keep it working. After all you have to pay a monthly fee and then the “required” purchase of new software every ...

Best in class

Mark K., Newegg
18 February 2014
  • Summary: I have looked at a lot of other financial software packages for money management over the last few years and I have yet to find one that comes close to Quicken. While I sympathize with the other reviews who have a lot of crashes with Quicken, something else must be wrong as it works flawless for me.
  • Pros: Easy to track income & expenses. Easy to create a budget with excellent feedback on how well you are sticking to it. By far the best in its ability to download transactions from banks. Full of features - you can use what ones you want and ignore the ones you don't want to use.
  • Cons: None. I have looked at a lot of other financial software packages for money management over the last few years and I have yet to find one that comes close to Quicken.

You'll be buying again in 3 years!

STEPHEN M., Newegg
5 January 2014
  • Pros: Works for what I needed.
  • Cons: I've owned quicken 2011 for almost 3 years and the software just advised me that it will no longer allow me to download online transactions after 3 years of using the software. I won't even be able to directly download transactions from my bank to my PC and then import them. Quicken will lock out...

Will Not Be Buying Quicken Products

Gregory C., Newegg
2 January 2014
  • Summary: It's a shame as I've used Turbo Tax and Quicken since early 1990's. Sign of times everyone wants your money and nothing in return. Like others have said before; if I could give it 0 (zero) eggs I would. Too bad newegg.com won't help us out on it.
  • Pros: nothing refuse to install
  • Cons: wanted question answered by Quicken Tech before installation here's what happened: "Was using on line chat was number 3 in line. Wait was to be 15 minutes, reasonable. When I got to number 1 in line with 11 minute wait, again reasonable. After 30 minutes into an 11 minute wait, no longer reasonab...

Terrible Product, even worse support

Steven G., Newegg
13 December 2013
  • Summary: The only good thing I CAN say about their customer support is that the moment I mentioned wanting a refund they jumped at the chance to serve me and it was processed quite expediently.
  • Pros: To be fair, the software itself wasn't terrible. It has some nice features and it presents them in a friendly manner. However, see Cons.
  • Cons: Online or "Cloud" integration is absolutely horrible. I was in a chat with a representative who obviously couldn't understand half of what I was saying for over half an hour before he admitted, yes there is something wrong with my login. The whole issue was that I could login to one part of the s...

zippy

Grace R., Newegg
8 December 2013
  • Pros: I like the program. Many improvements have been made through the years. I've owned Quicken for over 10 years and the check register is much faster to fill and the split category is fast too.
  • Cons: Takes more time to set up if not going online.
