Subscription Model

I'm a 20 year quicken user, but I'm new to the Mac subscription model. I don't use all the bells and whistles on quicken, but I do value the ability to download from financial institutions. Can you tell me the most cost effective way to maintain this functionality? Thanks.

    It's pretty simple, actually. The software is now sold on a subscription basis. You need to maintain a subscription unless you want to use the software completely manually. So determine which Quicken you need -- probably Quicken Deluxe -- and buy a subscription from Quicken or a retail site. (You can often find discounted deals for an initial subscription, although Quicken seems to be clamping down on getting full-price for renewals.)

    It doesn't matter much which features of Quicken you do or don't use. If you track investments, and you want to download your banking and/or investment transactions, then you need Quicken Deluxe. Quicken Starter doesn't handle investments; Quicken Premier only adds online bill payment and priority queuing for support calls.
