Quicken bank of america not updating
It's never a good idea to upgrade a piece of software just before using it for an important job. On February 26 -- two months before the cutoff -- I received this email in which Intuit offered a free upgrade to Quicken Premier 2015, a "4.99 value." The reason for Intuit's cave is right there in the first paragraph: "Because you are a dedicated Quicken Bill Pay customer." Of course I was a dedicated Quicken Bill Pay customer!For who-knows-how-long I had paid Intuit nearly 0 per year to pay my bills online.My interest was mainly in paying bills, budgeting, and preparing for tax time.No product that I found on my own seemed to suit my needs.Intuit supports the current and two previous versions of Quicken software.This support includes the ability to use Direct Connect to download messages and transactions directly from Online Banking. OL-301 is one of several general errors related to connecting to the system that occur for a number of reasons, including regularly scheduled maintenance, high traffic, stock market hours or an unexpected outage.
But I had decided to hold out until late March, so that I could first finish preparing my taxes using Quicken 2012.If you're a Quicken user, you probably know that unless you upgrade at least once every three years, you'll be cut off from all online services -- such as bill paying, and downloading banking or credit card transactions -- by April 30 of the third year. Then there were the changes Intuit had made to the program's user interface over the years that forced me to change my habits every 12 months. Last year, after checking out the new features and the user reviews for Quicken 2014 on Amazon (users gave it roughly three stars out of five), I decided to hold out for a third and final year. Angry users have called it plenty of you upgrade Quicken every year? But a few years ago, I began to question whether each new version's bells and whistles, many of which I didn't need, were worth the price.Since I rarely buy a new version of software until it has been on the market for a few months (enough time for the most serious bugs to have been fixed), I bided my time by checking into the remaining alternatives to Quicken.(The product's biggest competitor, Microsoft Money, had been discontinued in 2009).
