I have been using quicken to track my financial life for about 10 years now and am generally happy with it. A couple of years back Intuit changed the ability to download stock quotes for 2 years maximum. After that 2 years you need to buy the next version of Quicken. Not cool since the features I use have not changed in about 5 years. So my time to renew is coming up in a few months and I need to determine if I can use something else of just buy Quicken again.
Here are the main things I use Quicken for:
- Schedule bills and deposits in the calendar view so I can keep an eye on cash flow.
- Track all my stock and mutual fund investments across numerous accounts.
- I manually enter all my transactions so I can keep control of them. I just reconcile what I entered into Quicken based on the statements sent to me. I do not use Quicken's bill pay.
- I categorize all my expenditures for help come tax time.
- I use numerous reports including. Net Worth tracking, Cash not is retirement funds and total retirement savings.
My question is there any other tools (online or not) that would allow me to replace Quicken and not miss a beat? If I could import my Quicken data that would be a bonus.
I was interested in mint.com until Quicken bought them. Now I am not sure if they're any different then Quicken. Thoughts?
