Last night I opened up my copy of Microsoft Money only to be alerted by Microsoft that they will be ending future development on the product.
About ten years ago I got a free copy of Microsoft Money from a friend at Microsoft, so I made the switch from Intuit Quicken… oops.
Intuit is apparently trying to cash in on the deal by advertising what appears to be a discount on their main page for existing MS Money customers. After a few clicks, however, I discovered it’s just creative marketing. As you can see from the shots below, the so-called discount is the standard list price offered to anyone on the website.

Not trying to make a big deal about this; just found the Intuit/Quicken marketing a bit creative. And yes, I’ll be grabbing a copy of Quicken off EBAY and performing the conversion. I’m hoping I don’t hit the 10,000 transaction limit on the Quicken Conversation tool. If I do, I’ll just have to wait for the update mentioned in the screenshot.
