Saying Audios to Microsoft Money . . . for Good!

Saying Audios to Microsoft Money is the subject of this Big B File.

                  When I opened Microsoft money, I got the following notice (which was a complete surprise to the Big B Files). 

Important notice: Microsoft Money Plus will not be available for purchase after June 30, 2009. All purchased Money Plus products must be activated prior to Jan. 31, 2011.

With banks, brokerage firms and Web sites now providing a range of options for managing personal finances, the consumer need for Microsoft Money Plus has changed. After suspending annual updates of Money Plus in 2008, Microsoft is announcing today that we will no longer offer Microsoft Money Plus for purchase after June 30, 2009.

We would like to thank the many dedicated users who have been enthusiastic supporters of Microsoft Money over the years, as well as our partner financial institutions who helped pioneer a digital vision of financial management.

Microsoft remains committed to helping customers chart a course to financial well-being. The MSN Money Web site will continue to provide personal finance information and advice plus comprehensive market news and quotes. We will continue to evolve and enhance the online MSN offering in the coming months.

Current Money Plus customers who have questions or concerns can find additional information here.

I have emailed Commerce Bank, which where I bank at, for their reaction on this and I’ll let you know what their reaction is to this news from Microsoft.   I often preferred it to Quicken and other software because of its ease of use and customer friendliness.  It will be sad to see it go. 

And that is the Big B Files.  Click on the comments link below and tell me what you think . . . I’m Bryan Hewing.
