what's the difference between quicken deluxe and quicken starter?

I want to get my college student set up with quicken. She can buy the Quicken starter at her college store. Is that the same as Quicken Deluxe?



Quicken Starter Edition does not have the ability to track any investment or Mutural fund activity.  It will basically allow you track Checking, Savings, and Credit Card activity.  Also from my understanding you have to start fresh with Quicken Starter Edition, so you can import a previous year file in.

If your college student just has basic financial activity this would be a great product to start with, but when she wants to upgrade to a newer version she would have to go to at least Quicken Deluxe.

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.
