so who will buy Quicken and what is our future




- American Express - Primary charge card. I chose the one with 0 annual fees and decent cash back policy
- Wells Fargo - Checking, Savings & Visa (some merchants don't take Amex) - Fidelity - Retirement Funds - IRA, Roth IRA
- Prudential -- 401(k) for my current employer
- Merrill Lynch - Brokerage account - My employer does not allow me to set this up under Fidelity or else I would.
- Amazon Store Card (I buy a lot of stuff from Amazon and this is a great deal)

YOu mean everyone in your family has to keep every receipt and turn it over to you at the end of the day, you have to do this EVERY day? That wouldn't work for me...
} To me, entering the transactions is not the issue. I currently download } transactions for eleven accounts from six separate financial } institutions. If I had to logon to each institution's web site to see } what transactions had been posted, it would take me a lot more than 10 } minutes.
Same here: it takes a lot of time and is a PITA to log into every institution's website and do their quicken-compatible download. And if it doesn't *download* and I had to actually transfer the info manually that'd be a HUGE pain. I really like, and rely on, OSU. It takes about 90 seconds to update all 9 accounts and do it frequently enough that there's no question of what the charges were for, so I can just keep my receipts and such in a file and not have to fuss with the paperwork at all.

Thanks for the detail. I thought that they were all bank-type accounts. Naturally,
if I add up all the accounts of all types of my spouse and I, the total would also be
about 9. However, I still don't trust the accuracy of OSU--Over the years
I have seen dozens of problems from posters to this newsgroup.

years

I update ten accounts using OSU, and I've done so for many years. In all those years, I've never had a single problem with it.

My how offensively categorical. "no need"? I have three credit cards, for financial reasons I need to have two checking accounts and each comes with an attached savings account..
How many accounts do you, knower of all, think is the maximum one would "need"?
