Subscription Banners are Intrusive & Unnecessary

Dear Quicken,

Is there any plans on reducing the Membership Banners?

I believe that a less intrusive approach to encouraging subscription renewal would be more effective than the way it's currently implemented. With all of this real-estate being taken up by NAGGING, my 1st thought is not oh, I should rethink my decision, it's more along the lines of... oh, I'm a valued customer as long as I keep subscribing, my past loyalty means nothing.

It seems that I paid for the right to use the software and receive products updates, and the subscription provides the ability to connect to my financial institution.

But... once I choose to end my subscription, and I choose to manually import my QIF or QFX file, I should be allowed to do so without the annoying intrusion. I also accept that at some point in time I'll also lose software upgrades, which is how it should be.

I have minimal needs.... I have one credit card that I use, 1 checking and 1 savings account, and I basically use Quicken to keep track of spending and to keep my accounts reconciled. All of my investments are managed outside of Quicken. I could almost do all of this with macros in a spreadsheet [Removed]

I miss the Quicken of years past...

Regretfully,

David

    You won't be able to import QFX files when your subscription expires nor are entitled to upgrades.

    "It seems that I paid for the right to use the software"
    NO, you paid for a license to run Q subject to the "Terms and Conditions".  Those included an explicit period for the license ... which in your case has expired.
    You're fortunate that you're able to run it at all.  When the license for Starter Edition expires, the entire product goes "Read Only",.

    Like I say, I miss the Quicken of old. Subscription based software is not user considerate.
