If I only use Quicken to keep track of bank accounts, which one should I buy

I have Quicken Deluxe for Mac and it renews soon. But do I need Deluxe if I only track my bank accounts and use to reconcile? I don't do bill pay or reports.

    Thanks for the quick response. I didn't phrase my question correctly. I want to be able to download my information from my bank. Will the Starter subscription allow that function?
    Yes.

    Personally I would buy Deluxe from a retailer like Office Depot.
    You can generally get a price close to what you would pay for Starter at Quicken.com.

    EDIT and the Starter version has a ton of restrictions that you won't see on any "marketing comparison chart".

    But if I downgrade from Deluxe to Starter, I will still be able to download data from my bank? I ask because a few years ago, I had to upgrade to continue the link between my bank and Quicken.
    Again, yes.

    FWIW, if your Quicken Starter subscription expires, not only will you not be able to download, but your data file becomes Read Only.
