ClarisWorks/Quicken Deal

Send Article to a Friend

If you're thinking about buying ClarisWorks soon, you might add it to your Christmas list. Until 01-Jan-93 every ClarisWorks box includes a free copy of Quicken, Intuit's popular personal finance program. I've never used Quicken personally (I started with MacMoney and these aren't the sort of programs you switch easily), but it's a pretty good deal if you need a personal finance program. Quicken normally lists for $69 and ClarisWorks for $299, but you can find them for as little as $42 and $199 pretty easily. It doesn't appear from a quick call to MacConnection that you get Quicken with the $95 ClarisWorks sidegrade offer.
