Quicken Online Dies > MoneyStrands, NOT Intuit Mint.com
Intuit said it would phase out Quicken Online, but give users a "seamless transition" to Mint.com. Now Intuit will not move data to Mint.com due to complexity. Quicken Online users cannot upload data into Mint.com, but can upload to MoneyStrands.
Many Quicken Online forum users no longer trust Intuit, due to its outrageous broken promise. Many paid monthly until companies like Mint.com succeeded. How could Intuit investigate Mint.com, buy it for $170 million, announce it would transfer data, and then say it could not do it? Easy, it was cheaper not to do it, when all that matters are Intuit profits. Clearly, Integrity Without Compromise, Intuit's supposed #1 operating value, has become The Big Lie.
Former Quicken Online users can start over with Yodlee (tied to Bank of America) or use my new free favorite, MoneyStrands (see free MoneyStands videos). Quicken Online users can download transactions in CSV format with this Quicken Online help. You cannot upload CSV into Mint.com, but you can upload to MoneyStrands, in CSV, QIF, or QFX format. This means you also can upload from Quicken desktop or financial institutions not yet supporting MoneyStrands.
We can do this for you. That is amazing, since it is too complex for Intuit. MoneyStrands also may soon let us drop QuickBooks entirely. Imagine never manually downloading banks or credit card transactions, as we do in QuickBooks. Imagine having all your financial transactions in one place, automatically updated daily. Imagine the cost savings if your accountant uses your free MoneyStrands to do your financial statements and tax returns, without entering transactions again.
That is what I will be working on. Unlike Intuit, I will not promise what I am too cheap or dishonest to deliver. So check http://www.QuickBooks-
