Purchases from Quicken.com

When you purchase a Quicken subscription from Quicken.com, your purchase requires that you create a Quicken ID, or use your existing Quicken ID. This Quicken ID is associated with your subscription membership, so your purchase from Quicken.com activates your subscription. No activation code is necessary.

  1. Install and launch Quicken.
  2. Sign in using the same Quicken ID and password that you used to purchase Quicken.
