Downgrade from Deluxe to Starter

I only use Quicken to keep track of my credit card spending and to balance my bank accounts.  What would change if I downgraded to Starter?

    More basic - no Investments or Loans....
    Also - if you ever stop your yearly renewal with Starter - your data file and all accounts become Read-Only - not true with Deluxe -
    Also, there is a rather large banner on the Quicken screen as a "renewal reminder"

    Hi @Momo ,

    Your Question is mull. Quicken Starter Edition is no longer for Sale.

    See this from Quicken:  https://www.quicken.com/compare Quicken has removed Starter from view.

    Quicken Starter is no longer listed.unless ou switch between  Win and Mac and then it only stays in view for about 1 second and disappears.

    I just clicked on it and starter is gone. 2/25/2021 9:29 PM PST.


    EDIT: If you still see it refresh the page, it might be cached.

    BTW see what has replaced it.  Currently the same price too.

    I have refreshed several time and cleared my cach and it still shows Starter @ $35.99.  But from everything I have read and now hear from the community, it might be better for me to stay with Deluxe or if the cost becomes a problem, move to Money in Excel for free.  Thanks for all your help with this.

    Does anyone know what happens with Simplifi data if your subscription lapses?

    Well it stands to reason that if you let the subscription lapse you aren't going to be able to get in to do anything.  So if you want your data you would need to export to CSV before it lapsed.  As for what happens to the data on the server I see a post in the forum where a person asked for their account and data to be removed, and they did that for them.
