Quicken not updating discover

The Gnu Cash development team received notice about a new book published by Packt Pub, UK: Gnu Cash 2.4 Small Business Accounting, by Ashok Ramachandran.

This is a Beginner's Guide for managing your accounts.

While I still think this “big picture” approach is really important, I’ve recently become a convert to the You Need A Budget crowd.

In case you aren’t familiar with You Need A Budget (YNAB), it’s a nifty little software package that allows you to track your spending and budget for your future and generally helps you fix your financial problems.

I use Quicken to track all my financial transactions, and since ive been tracking my Chase purchases I noticed that I could never get my "online" balance to match my Quicken balance, even though I had been downloading all my transaction via direct connect from Chase.

After making balance adjustments on my quicken register and re-downloading, re-activating, and even manually calculating each purchase i finally got so frustrated and called Chase to ask them WTF!

I'm a big fan of technology, but if you feel the need to balance your credit balances immediately, might a check register be more effective? For Bank of America, I've often seen the "online balance" be ahead of what transactions are cut to Quicken by a day...maybe two. Cards: American Express Platinum (NPSL) Penfed Platinum Reward Visa (K) Chase Freedom Visa (K) Fidelity American Express (K) American Express Blue Cash Preferred (K) Bank of America Cash Rewards Master Card (K) Citi Thank You Preferred Visa (.5K) Chase Sapphire Preferred (.5K) US Bank Cash Visa Signature (K) Discover IT (K)I should have clarified, i don't mean to actually reconcile the account everyday.

I’ve joined the ranks of the “true believers” for two reasons: To start off, it’s important that you understand that the program has a mission: to help you stop living paycheck to paycheck, get out of debt and save more money faster. You enter your income for the month and then budget how it’s going to be spent or saved. Using this method, you don’t spend more than you have.
