Quicken 2013 Review: Is It Worth The Upgrade?

Postby kcarter609 » Thu Oct 04, 2012 7:07 pm

For those of you that use it, do you plan to upgrade to the 2013 edition that makes your info available on mobile devices and all? I liked the improved loan interface, and being able to access it with my tablet would be awesome too.

I'm just not sure I want to spend $100 on it + tax, even if I will get 7% back on it.

I just replied to a review I found and answered the required questions to qualify for a chance to win a free copy. Took me 5 minutes. I doubt I'll win, but why not try?

Ok, I didn't win the content of course, but I just bought it through UR Mall at Best Buy so I get 6.1% back (5% Quarterly, 1% extra from UR Mall, 0.1% extra from Freedom 10+10) which gets me a little over $7 off. I also cashed in my PNC Points (20k of them) that have been building for 4 years (Worthless... like $0.002/point) for a $40 credit to my bank account. I'm putting that towards Quicken, so basically I got Quicken for $70.

The big reason I upgraded to Quicken 2013 was for the much improved budgeting feature and the mobile app support. I'll post more information/a review when I pick it up tomorrow and install it.
