It's been almost a year since personal finance startup Mint.com was acquired by Intuit, who this weekend will officially shut down Quicken Online and direct its users to Mint.com.
Quicken Online will be shuttered on Sunday, August 29, according to a note on the product's login screen. It will be replaced with Mint.com, where users will need to set up a new account if they do not already have one.
Quicken Online users will be able to manually import certain account data into Mint.com by adding Quicken Online as an account in Mint. Quicken also encourages existing customers to export their Quicken Online data as a CSV file for backup purposes. All transaction and account data will be wiped from Intuit's servers beginning on August 29.
One group for whom this transition might be a challenge is the small business users of Quicken Online, who will no longer be able to access the Web component of Quicken's Home & Business product.
Since Mint.com is geared toward personal finance, it does not currently offer a way to differeniate between personal and business transactions. For that, business customers still looking to manage their finances online might want to consider alternatives like InDinero or Outright.
The desktop versions of Quicken's products will not be affected by the change.
