Renewal email looks like Phishing

I just called Quicken support to report that the automated email I received this morning looks too much like a Phishing attempt. It says "We attempted to process your request to renew your Quicken membership..." and then provides a "click here" link to update payment information. Hovering the cursor over the link displayed a URL that DID NOT even contain "quicken.com". After being trained to question any email like this, I think it's a terrible idea for Quicken to be sending out this type of email. Instead, the message should explain that most likely, the payment didn't process because the credit card associated with the account needed to be updated, and then explaining how to do this within the software itself, NOT by clicking on a link that could easily be spoofed by bad actors.
