July’s here and summer is in full swing – Kids are home from school, steaks cooking on the BBQ, fireworks on the 4th, hot days on beach or nearby river, and long weekends. In general, people are taking it easy this time of year.
When it comes to software sales, especially Quicken, it’s also a slow time of the year. Not only are people more interested in finding the perfect new swimsuit to buy versus sitting in front of the computer with a new program, but a lot of folks have already upgraded to the 2015 versions when they were released last October (Quicken 2016 is set to be released this coming October as well).
But this can be good news for you because you’ll find some pretty good deals now available on all versions of Quicken 2015 software. Let’s take a look at our top picks this month:
- Get $10.00 off at the Official Quicken Store. From now until July 30th you can save $10.00 instantly on Deluxe, Premier, and Home & Business versions. If you need the Mac version, we have this instant coupon that will let you save $20.00. We like buying our Quicken software directly from Intuit for two reasons. First, you know that you are getting the latest version of the product with all the initial bugs fixed. Second, and more importantly, you are covered by a full 60-day money back guarantee (this is not offered by any other reseller). This is pretty important because Quicken does not offer free trials on any of their products. So if you are buying it for the first time or upgrading from an older version and come across computer compatibility issues, need a more powerful version, or simply you’re not full satisfied it, then you can return it for a full refund.
- Find Quicken 2015 on sale at Amazon. Amazon is one of the biggest, if not THE biggest, resellers of Quicken software. And just about every version beginning with the Starter edition all the way to Rental Property Manager is on sale for 30 to 40% off. No coupons are needed as the discount will be reflected automatically in the sale price for the version that you choose. Best of all, most versions include free shipping or instant product download. Just keep in mind that most orders will not fall under Amazon’s general return policy so once you buy it it’s yours forever.
- Pick up your copy of Quicken at your local Best Buy or Staples. Both stores have discounts on Quicken once in a while but that’s not the point; It’s important to remember that these stores have very good price-match guarantees. So as long as you find the same version of the software on sale at another authorized Intuit store (i.e. Amazon), then the manager on duty should be able to adjust the price on the spot for you.
