EDIT: Most of what I wrote below is now obsolete. Thanks to some in this thread, it's been discovered that you don't need to upgrade - there's a specific URL listed in the below Wiki Community Board that will allow anyone to purchase the software for only $10. Thanks!

This is probably a bug with the Quicken website, but....

If you have Quicken 2014 Premier (or possibly other versions, YMMV), you can upgrade to Quicken 2016 Home and Business for only $10 (regularly $114.99). Load up your version of Quicken, then under the "Help" menu select, "Add Home and Business." This will launch a web browser which takes you to the Quicken website (http://www.quicken.com/products) and allows you to add the Home and Business version to your cart for $10 or the Property Rental version for $60 (regularly $114.99 and $164.99 respectively). Add it to your cart, go through the checkout, and download the software. You can then install -- it's not an "upgrade" version as the first step is to uninstall your old version.

This was probably only supposed to work if you already had Quicken 2016 Premier and wanted to add the extra functionality, but it didn't actually check the year of the software. When I did the upgrade, I didn't already have a datafile open - I'm not sure if that matters, so if you don't see the upgrade option, close the datafile and try again.

This may work with Quicken 2015 as well, not sure. It's important to note that going to the website directly doesn't show the deal - you have to do it through the Quicken software itself.

Good luck!

1) You do not need existing quicken product to get this.
2) Copy and Paste the following link into your web browser, pay $10, download, and install it.

Code:
http://www.quicken.com/qkn16/upgrade/PREMIER?priorityCode=1338800000
You must copy and paste the link. The SlickDeals referral system breaks it otherwise.

Finally figured it out. Downloading my $10 H&B now.

http://www.quicken.com/qkn16/upgr...1338800000

Slickdeals may be mangling the URL. The last part is: qkn16/upgrade/PREMIER?priorityCode=1338800000

Thanks for the tip! I was able to get it for $10, upgrading from 2015 Deluxe. I don't really need the Business part of the software, but in itself it already has everything in Quicken 2016 Premier. Installing now...

Excellent find - upgraded Quicken 2014 Premier to 2016 Home & Business for just $10.71. Downloaded, installed, works fine.

Worked for my 2015 Deluxe. It might not be the same for everyone, or the bug may have been found.

What's the URL for the upgrade? Is it unique based on your product key?

I tried on my Quicken Home and Business 2013 and the only option was adding rental property and that took me to a retail listing of Quicken 2016 Frown. This might because I've been using Quicken Home and Business 2013. Anyone have any suggestions or anyone have an extra key for the Quicken Deluxe or lower. Once you've updated it should allow that key to be used again. I would have to uninstall Quicken and then reinstall again.
Unless someone has different experiences or ideas. I have plenty of computers so could start with a new install
