Likely there will be more deals on this, but Quicken 2018 has been released and is in stores. MSRP is $49.99 for a 2 year subscription (it's now subscription only starting with 2018), but best buy is offering Quicken 2018 with a 2 year subscription. They are also offering the other versions of Quicken 2018 with 2 year subscriptions. It's not 2 years for the price of one, but it's a decent discount vs buying 2 one year subscriptions which would cost $99.98.

So the new company is going to year to year subscriptions with Quicken 2018? That sucks.

While the wording is new, the subscription has always been there. Quicken used to disable online functions 3 years after the version was released, now it's whatever the subscription period is. So effectively it's a price rise. I had bought Quicken Premier 2015 for $65, the 2018 version is $100 at BestBuy for two years. Effectively a 2.5 times price increase.

I do not get it.
Does this mean I have to buy this software, and pay for subscription?
say quicken 2018 + 2yr subscription =64.99, Do I have to pay upgrade when Quicken 2019 come out?

There is no more buying the software. It is all just a subscription model now. This deal is for the 2 year subscription (and a CD to install from?). Quicken is moving away from annual releases so you will receive updates as they are released.

Best Buy also has Premier for $99.99 (MSRP $119.99). Quicken Bill Pay (pay bills directly from Quicken) is free with Premier (For Quicken 2017 and Quicken 2018 Deluxe, it costs $9.95/month). If you use Quicken Bill Pay you might want to consider buying the Premier subscription instead.

Good deal OP, no knocking the post...

Sorry for the Rant... But Quicken is the biggest POS software development out there. Their patching breaks versions of applications and last week I basically had to upgrade to the 2018 version because one of their updates bricked my old 2016 version and it would just start with a blank screen.

I've tried other software and am not a fan of online tools like Mint (have 10+ years of financial records) and Quicken really is the only tool out there.

Pissed me off paying $35 for the 2018 Basic version when my old version worked just fine (and still had 2 years of support) but I wasn't going to invest the time in messing with my Windows machine to fix their botched patch roll out.

I do not see a reason to use bill pay.
Most credit card company and bills can draw money from my account
my bank (chase) also has bill pay/quick pay to pay only one company can not do that
