I believe that one of the greatest tools that I have ever owned is Quicken. Now, it could be any computer program that helps you keep track of your check register and keep track of your spending. For me, I started with Quicken 98 and went from there. Not too long ago I upgraded to Quicken 2005.
While I was doing some shopping, I was able to find copies of Quicken 2005 to give away. These are brand new and registerable…they are only a few versions old. The program will run on PCs that run XP, 2000, ME and 98. To see the full list of specs, please click here. Why not brand new? Well, for basic keeping track of your money, this older version does just fine and it costs a lot less. The deal I found was very good.
I purchased a total of 6 copies of Quicken 2005 and I am giving away 5. Why not 6? Well, along with this gift, I am offering my support to help you get set up to use it. I currently run Quicken 2005 for Mac, and to be able to help you as much as I can it helps to have the same version (the Mac and Windows version are actually quite different). As you are working to set it up, I will be an email away to answer your questions and help you get started with the basic set-up and use of Quicken.
Now, if you are interested in receiving a copy, please leave a comment below on this post sharing with me your committment to learning the program and setting it up. While I am offering to help you, you will have to do your part with making this work. I can’t set everything up for you. I will ship the program to you free of charge to US addresses only. I do have the complete boxes, but if you don’t mind I’d like to ship the disk and a little QuickStart guide to you and toss the box to save on shipping costs (the manual is on the disk in .pdf form). If you *really* want the box, let me know. If something should happen where you receive the program damaged or it gets lost, I cannot replace it. So far, everything I’ve sent out has made it to its destination *knock on wood*.
I will use random.org to select five random numbers. In the event that the randomizer selects some of the same numbers, I will pick others to have five different numbers. Those numbers will correspond with comments and that will determine the commenters who will receive the books.
I will accept comments on this post until 11pm EST on Wednesday, February 21, 2007. I will announce the winners on Thursday, February 22, 2007. If after I email the winners I do not hear back from them by Monday, February 26, 2007 with a shipping address, I will select another number(s).
And so you know, just like if you subscribe to my updates via email, I will never use your email or address for anything other than what they were provided for.
If you have questions, please contact me via email at bloggingawaydebt [at] yahoo [dot] com. Please do not leave a comment to ask a question – we’ll keep that for the entries.
NOTE: The version here is not for Mac. The specs needed are listed above in bold
