The giveaway has ended. Thank you for participating! I’ve contacted the winner by email. We may launch another giveaway in the coming months, so follow me on Twitter and follow Consumerism Commentary on Facebook to be the first to know when there is another opportunity to win a free copy of Quicken 2013.
Intuit is offering Consumerism Commentary readers the chance to win a copy of Quicken Home and Business 2013. This is the same software I have been using for many years to track my personal finances as well as my business finances. Read my review of Quicken 2013 here, published yesterday.
Compared with the Starter Edition, Deluxe, and Premier flavors of Quicken, the Home and Business edition of the software is most suitable for people who, like me, have or have had investments and side income to track accurately. Even when my business accounting became more important and I attempted to switch to QuickBooks for tracking my business’s financials, I continued using Quicken to maintain a complete picture of my life from the financial perspective.
Through Quicken, I was able to generate personal finance reports to publish on Consumerism Commentary on a monthly basis.
The Home and Business edition is best suited for anyone from bloggers earning a small bit of income from their websites to small business owners. Over the past several years as the owner of a blog-based business, I’ve used Quicken extensively for organizing more than just my personal finances.
- I’ve made a heavy use of Quicken’s invoicing and payment tracking tools.
- Quicken has helped me to chase down clients or advertisers who were late on their payments.
- The software gave me an idea of my accounts receivable at any moment so I could make good decisions about potential business expenses.
- The business expense tracking allowed me to easily prepare for increasingly difficult income tax returns for the business.
- As a professional writer and business owner with income from various sources, Quicken helped me decide how to spend my time for the best increase of revenue.
