Last week I wrote about Quicken Online’s transition from a paid subscription to being totally free. Not long thereafter, readers started reporting that they were getting a login message telling them that their free trial had expired.
After a bit of investigation, I heard from the Quicken team that:
“The service is free and has been since the announcement with no intentions of going back to the pay-for-service model.”
Apparently this problem was caused by a glitch when they converted from a subscription-based service to a free service, and it only affected a subset of customers. Regardless, they had the problem sorted out within an hour to two. So… Quicken Online really is free if you’re interested in checking it out.
And if the online version isn’t your cup of tea, then check out the available Quicken 2009 discounts — you can get up to 36% off the list price.
