Can I use Check Pay with Quicken Deluxe?

Can I use Check Pay with Quicken Deluxe, or must I have a Premier subscription?

    You can add the Bill Manager services (Quick Pay and Check Pay) for $9.95/month. But if you don't need a large number of transactions, why pay $119/year for this service rather than paying and extra $25/year to switch from Deluxe to Premier? 

    This Quicken web page shows the costs and numbers of bill payments for each of the ways to use Bill Manager. Here's the relevant table:

    Note Premier only gives you 3 check payments a month, included in its cost:


    Personally I wouldn't touch this with a hundred foot pole.
    People have reported checks that don't get there for weeks.

    @Chris_QPW  Per the chart I posted above, Bill Manager "Standard" -- what's included with Quicken Premier, currently includes 5 check payments (Check Pay) and 12 electronic payments (Quick Pay) per month.

    (I'm not sure where that screen shot you posted comes from; they don't even use the name "Bill Pay" for check payments any more: "Bill Manager" is the overall suite of payment services, and "Check Pay" is for mailed checks.)

    Like you, for the limited number of checks I need to send in the mail, I write my own checks and mail them rather than paying for a premium service to do the same thing.

    Then it sounds like they need to update their website:

    Thank you both for you help. As it stands, I write less than one check per month so it's not worth it to me to continue to pay for Premier for that feature. I was hoping Deluxe might have a way to pay per check.

    For less than one a month I personally would just use my bill pay at my financial institution's website, or just write physical check.

    I write almost no checks (have almost all my bills paid by automatic withdraws I have setup, mostly from a credit card that pays me cash) so I just write a check when that happens.
