Expired Membership Banner

My Quicken membership expires on 5/18 so the expired membership banner has begun to occupy space on my screen. I only use Quicken as a stand-alone App; and don't need the download services or program updates that are part of the annual renewal fee. Don't see why the banner has to persist under these circumstances, other than as an unwelcome annoyance that begins to approach an unethical sales or business practice.
I could live with the banner as a reminder as long as the "Dismiss" button stays active after decline of membership renewal to allow recapture of screen space.

    Some things in life we don't get to choose.  So, in fact, you have to either live with it or take one of these actions:

    1. Renew the subscription.
    2. Find a copy of Quicken 2016 or Quicken 2017 which can read the Quicken Subscription data file and use them (they don't have the banner because they weren't subscription).
    3. Use a process like this to export using QIF and import into an older version like Quicken 2013, which can be used for free.  Here is the procedure (not easy to do): http://www.quicknperlwiz.com/changetransfers.html and in the section of this article about updating from Quicken 2004 to 2009 you can find the install for Quicken 2013.  https://www.quicken.com/support/how-and-when-use-intermediate-version-convert-older-versions-quicken
    4. Switch to another product.

    @Chris_QPW was Quicken 2018 a subscription?

     Quicken 2018 was the first US subscription release.

    @Chris_QPW - never mind, I think it was.  It just the 2018 Quicken CD I have here doesn't say subscription.

    Just for the record Quicken Windows Canadian was the first Subscription version, and as mentioned above the US version followed the next year.  It was one of the few times the Canadian version got something before the US version, but I’m sure they didn’t feel “privileged.   ;)
