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

Premier

$46.79

Free online bill payment

Priority access to customer support

Home and business (Windows only)

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.
