Quicken at a Glance

Best for: Versatile accounting and budget management

Price range: From $31.19 per year

Key features: Budget tracking and bill management

Apps: Windows and Mac plus Android, iOS, and web UI

Integrations: Online banking platforms as well as GetApp and QuickBooks

Quicken Ease of Setup and Use

Whether users sign up for the Windows or Mac versions, getting the program set up is as easy as downloading an executable file and following through with the installation steps. While Quicken can sync data to the cloud, this process can be completed while users are offline and disconnected from the central database.

How easy is Quick to use? Take a look at the attractive dashboard and judge for yourself. The program features an easy color-coded information layout that makes plucking out information, such as spending by category, completely simple. Monitoring trends is also straightforward thanks to the bar chart based display for information over time. On both desktop platforms, Quick is definitely an intuitive and attractive tool to use.

Quicken Pricing and Plans

Whether users wish to sign up for the Windows or Mac editions, they can take advantage of the same pricing structure:

Tier
Price (per year)
What users get

Starter

$35.99

All accounts in one place

Budget management

Deluxe

$31.19

Customized budget

Debt tracker

Saving goals

Premier

$46.79

Free online bill payment

Priority access to customer support

Home and business (Windows only)

$62.39

Everything in Premier plus:

  • Separate business and personal expenses
  • Custom invoice emailing

Given that these prices all reflect the cost of annual subscriptions, we think that this makes Quicken a pretty good deal. And of course it has to be pointed out: any budgeting / accounting tool can very quickly pay for itself (many times over!). Once you’ve gotten a better handle on what you’re spending, it’s much easier to stick to a budget. We think that Quicken represents fair value for money across its subscription tiers.

Quicken Features

Consolidate Your Financial Accounts

It's the accounting software I've been using at home for a long time and I'm used to it. I think It's not for professional use but good enough for home use.

Works well for taxes every April each year but it is a little expensive, sometimes prefer a cheaper solution.

4 months ago

Quicken is very good and very dependable, but I miss Lotus 123; it was easier to use!

5 months ago

Hassle free. Have used Quicken for years. It is easy to use and accurate. I can get my bookkeeping done easily.

5 months ago

Quicken is pretty good and great to use for starting a business or starting to keep financial records.

6 months ago

I have been using Quicken for many years to manage the finances of my business. Product is flexible and reliable. There are many features I don't use but I am impressed that they are part of the package.

3 months ago

It gets the job done. Sometimes the software is clunky or buggy, but overall it does what it supposed to do.

4 months ago

We have not used them all that long.So it is harder to rate their services.

5 months ago

It is relatively self-explanatory and relatively inexpensive. It meets my needs and I can't replace it with other things.. I've used it forever and I know it quite well.

5 months ago

It is basically intuitive but there are some parts that are not and the help tools are not the clearest.

5 months ago

I have better software that I like better than Quicken but I also like having the option to compare my financial data however and whenever I feel the need.

6 months ago

We were using an accountant for basic accounting needs and paying dearly for the service. Quicken provides our basic needs at a one time reasonable cost.

6 months ago

The software is user friendly and extremely intuitive for any level of user.

3 months ago

Quicken is ok. It's the top of the tier. Middle of the road for all aspects - I.e. ease of use, support, etc.

4 months ago

Not easy to get setup and use some parts. Not easy to find solutions for the problems of accessing.

5 months ago

It is good, but I felt it was too much software for my simple needs and it followed accounting rules so closely I ended up just using Excel.

3 months ago

There are better packages today, and many that are fine tuned to specific business types and models.

4 months ago

I had technical issues for months and the customer service kept on saying it was a problem with my computer, while many other customers were complaining of the same major issue on their forum. It's the worst customer service I ever experienced!
