BECU

It has been made aware to me that many of BECU's members check this forum prior to calling their Member Services line.  This is an email that is sent regularly by the BECU email team.  I hope it can be of some help.  Have a great day.Unfortunately, the Visa data for BECU (Boeing Employees Credit Union) is not available through the standard download process for versions of Quicken newer than 2005.  They are aware that this is a service some of their members would like to see added.  BECU is hoping to offer this option sometime in late 2008.Until then, you can setup Quicken to view your Visa as a cash account.  This will allow you to download transactions manually.For Quicken versions prior to 2008:Go to "add accounts" in your Cash Flow Center Type in Boeing Employees Credit Union next to "this account is held at the following institution" then "next"(Once you start, it should auto fill)Click "manual" then "next"Click "cash" "then "next"Name the account something you will identify with your Visa Click "next"Set the dates and amounts to where you wish to start keeping track of the account and click "done"Open your browser and login into your BECU Online BankingClick on your Visa accountChoose the period at the top of the page that you wish to download Allow the screen time to change to show that information Click "download"Save the file to your desktop.Go back to your QuickenIn the upper right corner of the page click "file" and "import"Choose "qif"Select the account you named and put a check next to "transactions."Click "done"Quicken 2008Click on "add account" from the bottom of the Account Bar.Type in Boeing Employees Credit Union next to "this account is held at the following institution" then "next"(Once you start, it should auto fill)Check the button next to " No, I do not want to connect to Boeing Employee's Credit Union through Quicken" then "next."The next window is "Choose the type of account to add"Check the button next to "cash" and then "next."Name the account something you will identify with your Visa Click "next"Set the dates and amounts to where you wish to start keeping track of the account and click "done"Open your browser and login into your BECU Online BankingClick on your Visa accountChoose the period at the top of the page that you wish to download Allow the screen time to change to show that information Click "download"Save the file to your desktop.Go back to your QuickenIn the upper right corner of the page click "file" and "import"Choose "qif"Select the account you named and put a check next to "transactions."Click "done"

Answer

Thanks for the information about BECU's possible plans for Visa in the future.  I'm not interested in the QIF format, but I would certainly use this particular card a lot more if standard downloads were available.

People come to Quicken Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
