Please get rid of the big left hand side bar advertising to renew

I've used Quicken for over 20 years and I am so sorry I bought a new Quicken Deluxe program last year. Now I have a banner at the top and a big side bar on my screen asking me to renew. It makes it difficult to reconcile my banking while using a split screen. I do not download transactions but enter them manually and have done so for years.

I wish I left my Quicken Deluxe 2013 on my PC. Tech support says that I have to renew to get rid of the renewal banner on my home page that takes up valuable accounting space. I am so upset by this high pressure tactic to buy a new renewal of the Quicken program.

    If you can find a copy of Quicken 2016 or 2016, your current Quicken data file is compatible with those versions which don't have the renew banner.

    This isn't high pressure, it's extortion. PERIOD!

    There is no such thing as a free lunch anymore.
    If everybody refused to pay for the use of Quicken software, the company would go under in short order. You better start looking for a new free application that meets all your needs and will be supported decades into the future.

    I let my subscription expire because I had operating issues with my laptop and could not use it. It's finally fixed and now I'm dealing with the "expire" banner at the top and the huge right hand bar that takes up about 1/4th of my 21" screen. [Removed - No Soliciting/Inaccurate]

    If the system issues are now resolved and you want to continue using Quicken from now on …
    To get rid of the renewal banner, why don't you renew your subscription? That would take care of the banner in a hurry. Just click any of the Renew buttons in your Quicken session and follow instructions:

    Sorry all - for me, it is worth $5/month to support Quicken
    and in turn keeping them in business to handle my recording of ALL my financials.

    It's less then a $5 lunch meal at Wendys - Jr Bacon Cheeseburger, fries, 4-nuggets, & drink - bam…

    If the software is free, you get what you pay for.
