I've used YNAB for months. It's just easier than manipulating an excel spreadsheet and less intimidating for others. I'm getting it for my brother and girlfriend immediately. This price is a steal! Thank you!

Is Steam required to run this discounted version of YNAB 4? If so, I am wondering if there would be any increased security issues vs. purchasing direct from YNAB? I have been wanting to purchase YNAB 4 and this deal is very tempting.
Okay, I found the answer. No, Steam is not required to run YNAB even when purchased from Steam.
I've been using YNAB for almost 18 months and having tried several of the money/budgeting application available, YNAB was exactly what I was looking for. The upgrade price for their "major update" (YNAB3 to YNAB4) is $40, so getting it for $20 is a great price on a seldom discounted software package!

Is this better than using mint.com?

Does ynab access your bank and credit card accounts online?
If I am already categorizing my transactions in quicken or quick books does this require a duplication of effort?

I've considered You Need A Budget, but the price has always kept me away. I've used Mint for years. It's designed to download transaction data and tell you what you're spending in different categories. Mint has a very rudimentary "goals" and "how far are you in each spending category this month" setup. Supposedly you need a budget does not connect to your banks, etc automatically and requires manual entry, but it's designed with goals as a primary focus, not just tracking what you've spent.
