Do I need to pay membership dues?

I upgrade once every 4 years, I have TB's of online storage and I have used Quicken for decades now so support is not an issue. Will Quicken stop working if I do not pay membership dues?

  • I am actually running Quicken 2020 but that is not listed as an option so I choose the most recent version. Paying $50 and getting nothing in return leads me to think it is not a good investment. As long as Quicken will keep running I am good.

    The "subscription" model has replaced the "yearly" naming after 2017,
    and allows access to all the online features...
    (2018, 2019, and 2020 == "subscription")
    this would include - software updates, downloading your financial transactions, quotes, investments, Quicken Mobile App, Quicken on the Web, Quicken Cloud, etc -  after your "subscription" ends, or you chose to not renew, these extra online features would be restricted -
    QWin Deluxe Subscription - Win10
  • All I want to do is balance my checkbook. I do not need any of those features.

    Also, if you're running "Starter Edition", then Q becomes READ ONLY when your subscription expires.
    The higher level product have about 1/4 of the screen taken up with a "nag message" to renew if your subscription expires.

    Yes that nag question is very annoying. What is even worse if you click on Renew it immediately renews your account without any further confirmations. (Removed-disruptive)
