Online Services in the discontinued product
When do online services expire?
Per the End User License Agreement for Money Plus Deluxe, Premium and Home and Business products, online services continue for two years after initial activation or until 1/31/2011, whichever comes first. The Money Plus End User License Agreement says that online services last 2 years or until 1/31/2011, whichever is earlier. I just bought Money, and the product notification says my services last until 6/08/2011. Which is correct?
The End User License Agreement date is the correct date. If I buy Money now, will I get 2 years of service?
No, as per the current End User License Agreement, online services for Money Plus Deluxe, Premium, and Home and Business products continue until 1/31/2011. My version of Money came with 2 years of online services. Can I extend my online services?
After the end of sales date (June 30, 2009), you will not be able to purchase a new or extended version of the online services. What happens when my online services have expired?
When online services expire, Money no longer supports online quotes nor direct online banking (including bill-pay). Money can still process bank statements imported from your bank’s Web site (if available), and quotes can be manually updated. Can I get quotes after online services expire?
No. Online quotes are part of the online services. Users can still manually update quote prices once online services have expired. What happens to bill-pay functionality?
Epay and Apay services will no longer be available from within the Money product after online services expire (which for Money Plus Deluxe, Premium and Home and Business customers is two years after your initial activation or Jan. 31, 2011, whichever is earlier; for Money Plus Essentials it is one year after activation or Jan. 31, 2011, whichever is earlier). This change does not impact you if you pay your bills through your bank's Web site. You can also still access Checkfree bill-pay through MSN Money. (Note: Some customers currently pay a fee to their bank to make online statements available through Money Plus for online bill-pay; those customers should contact their bank and discontinue that delivery once online services have expired.) What happens to yearly Tax updates after sales have ended?
Microsoft plans to support online services (including updates to rates and tables) for active customers through at least January 2011. If yearly tax updates end, however, users can still manually update the tax rates. (Verify current rates from tax rate schedules on the IRS Web site. In Money, go to Tools / Settings / Tax Settings. Click "Set your filing status and view tax rates by income bracket." Modify the data to match the correct tax year values.).
