I switched my account from desktop to online, opting for the Essentials (which at the time was $25/month). I use quickbooks only for invoicing so I didn't pay attention to the extra bells and whistles. Today I go to invoice and get a message that my Advanced trial has ended. What trial???? I signed up and having been paying for the Essentials. Turns out my desktop data was transferred to this Advanced trial rather than my Essentials account, and I had been unknowingly working in that. So, I call and the guy tells me to cancel my Essentials account, pay for an Advanced account and then quickly downgrade that so I can keep all my recent data and my credit card (which was charged yesterday for my Essentials account) won't be charged for the Advanced account. I just looked at my credit card statement and there's a charge for $180!!!! This is bait and switch and judging from the comments you are doing this crap to a lot of people.
