Quicken 2019

I'm running Quicken Deluxe 2016 for Windows. I normally upgrade every 2-3 years, so I expect to buy QW 2019 when it's released. Has anyone here heard anything about when it's expected to be released?

So are you saying that I need to buy a subscription now? What is it called? Where is it best to buy it? From Quicken? From Amazon? Somewhere else?

Not now. You can wait until 2019. Amazon or Costco would be cheaper than Quicken. I am running Quicken 2017 and will have to switch over to the new subscription service in 2020 so I don't have any experience with it.

Shop by price. Amazon had a deal for me that involved an extra month (or three? I can't remember) of service at no extra cost. You might be able to find a better deal at Costco or WalMart, but I doubt it.
If you avoid the lowest grades of Quicken (Starter) the subscription model is a price increase, nothing more. You can still buy Quicken on a CD. You can still continue to use it after your subscription runs out, but the online services will stop working. That is exactly what your deal is now. But you no longer have the option of buying a new Quicken every 3 years, so your price effectively goes up.

My understanding is the there will be a Q2019 and it will likely be released in the same general time frame as previous Quicken versions. I don't think Quicken currently intends to change that.
Those users who have a membership version of Quicken (the first one being Q2018) will always basically have the most current version of Quicken ... assuming they have kept their membership current.

The other distinction with this subscription model is your 'starting' date. Your 2-year period (if that is your chosen length) starts when you buy from Quicken or install if bought from a third party. Your ending date is 2 years later.
Through that 2 year period, you'll get all updates - including QW2019 (if they call it that) this fall. QW2020 (if they call it that) in Fall 2019. That is their way of pushing all active users to the same program releases.
In the old setup, you could have bought QW2017 in fall of 2016 and gotten full use (including online services) for 3.5 years through April 2020. Or you could go out and buy it today - but still only get online services through April 2020.

October? November?
So are you saying the opposite of what others here have said? That I don't have to buy a subscription, but can just continue to do what I've done in the past--buy a new version every 2-3 years?
Perhaps I should just wait until October or November to see what's available then.

No, that's not what I'm saying.
Your current non-subscription version (Q2016) will sunset exactly when it was originally scheduled to sunset (April 2019, I believe).
When Q2016 sunsets, you will have basically two choices, if you want to continue to download: 1.) Purchase the last remaining non-subscription version of Quicken (Q2017) from someplace like eBay, which will give you one additional year of downloading. When Q2017 sunsets, you will have no choice but #2 below, if you want to continue to download. 2.) Purchase the most current subscription version, from whatever source, for whatever length of time and price you prefer: you'll need to do some shopping, unless you are committed to purchasing directly from Quicken (and even there, I believe you can .
Once you have a subscription model, you will not need to make the specific effort to upgrade to a new version: as long as you keep the subscription current, you will get product fixes/updates that guarantee that you are always using the most current "version" (at the most current patch level) of Quicken.
If you allow the subscription to lapse, you will be able to continue using Quicken, but you will not be able to download, get product fixes/updates, or Quicken Support unless you re-subscribe. [I believe Starter Edition is more restrictive in that regard.]
I suggest you read the Q2018 Subscription FAQ's, here:

Can you renew by buying from someplace cheaper than Quicken?
