Quicken Personal Finance

Quicken Online is now FREE! It was previously $2.99 a month, so this is a pretty good deal. If you want to get control of your finances, be sure to check it out. Quicken is connected to over 5,000 financial institutions, so you get the ability to access all your financial accounts from one place with one password.

Quicken is a well-known name in the financial industry. I have been using Quicken since Intuit introduced the first version in 1984. That makes Intuit a company that has a 24 year history in the financial software market. As such, they are trustworthy, and they use advanced encryption technology and security safeguards. So you don't have to worry about the security of your financial data.

You can use Quicken Online with Windows and/or the Mac and with the Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox, and iPhone Web browsers. You can create a budget and you can categorize and track your spending including the ability to create visual charts and graphs. You can also save your transactions to a file and open that file in Excel. One of the best features is the ability to be sent bill reminders via email or as text messages to your cell phone alerting you that it is time to make a payment.

There are certain things that you will still need a stand-alone version of Quicken to do. If you want to monitor your investments in detail you will want to get Quicken Premiere (Quicken Premier - Save 20% + Free Shipping). If you want to track expenses for Home & Business, there is a package version for that. If you want to manage your rental property, you will need Rental Property Manager (Quicken Rental Property Manager - Save 10% + Free Shipping). But if you are just starting to computerize your finances and/or you want to consolidate your accounts, manage your money better, or gather tax information in one place, the Quicken Online Edition – Try it out for free! may be just what the finanial doctor ordered.
