  • I use mint to try and keep track of my money - what I have in checking and how much I owe on my credit card. It's a very clean app with a great interface, and for the most part it works great, but both of my banking accounts frequently have "connectivity issues" which can leave the balances outdated for weeks without being resolved. The issue seems to be with Mint itself, as I'm still able to login and see the balances from my bank's website. But for a free application, you can't expect perfection.

  • We recommend using Mint for its basic budgeting features. Mint is great for creating, and tracking your budget. The alerts via Email are useful and welcomed feature. It's unfortunate that Mint's investing area is very weak for all but the basic investors. The investing area is so weak - they don't list it on their own web site as one of the primary reasons to use Mint.com.

  • I’ve been using Mint.com as a part of our financial tool-chest for over 4 years now. In that time I’ve seen the site grow and improve it’s feature set, and it has become one of my go to tools when I want to know what’s going on in our financial lives. While I don’t think I would ever use Mint.com as my only financial planning and budgeting tool, I do think how it allows easy access to your family budget and trends in income and spending make it an invaluable resource. I’d highly recommend adding Mint.com to your tool-chest as well.

    I have loved using Mint. My primary experience of the software is via the mobile app, where I keep a record of every account, transaction, goal, and budget with ease. I think my favorite part of the app is the budgets section, where I can keep track of how I am spending my money, and can easily curtail that spending each month.

    Pros :

    • Let's start with Accounts. I have multiple debit and credit cards, and the ability to track all of them in one place makes it so much simpler to watch my net worth.
    • Likewise Bills: I have rent, insurance, student loans, auto insurance, an auto payment, and more that need to be accounted for - with Mint I can get alerts as those payments are nearing due to make assured I never miss a payment.
    • Budgets: Using this feature, I can set a numerical limit on a type of expenditure and label it. For example, if I want to spend $150 or less per month on dark chocolate, then I can set that budget in the app and check it weekly or daily to make sure I am not approaching the threshold too quickly. It's been a game changer for my unruly spending habits.
    • Cash Flow: This simple diagram tells me the difference between what I have made and what I have spent over the course of a month. That helps me to better understand how much of my money is going out the door at a 30 thousand foot view.
    • Credit Score: I'm currently working to increase my credit score through good spending habits, timely payments, and regularity of spending. I've been ab;e to watch my score grow little by little at the touch of a button using Mint. And I love that.
    • I could go an and on about the various features that have helped me to get a hold on my spending, but the long and the short of it is this - Mint.com has a strong UI and an engaging UX that draws me into it with simple but powerful information.

    Cons :

    • I have not experienced any cons with this app. andnbsp;

    I was an early adopter of Mint. I started using it right after I graduated college and got really into tracking my spending and creating budgets. I always liked how easy it was to create new budgets and link up all of your accounts (checking, savings, credit cards, etc.) in one place. But more recently, I think the simple, clean, easy to digest tool has become overwhelming.

    Pros :

    • The best thing, to me, about Mint, is that you can connect all of your financial accounts in one place, including your checking, savings, credit cards, car/student/house loans, etc.
    • This does a very good job of giving you a snapshot of your overall financial situation without having to dig through multiple accounts and entering multiple login credentials.
    • The budgeting option is also great because you can create as many budgets as you want and get the ability to track how much spending compared to your budget but also how much you're spending compared to the rest of the country (this comparison feature gave me an eye-opening view of my monthly spend on eating out, which encouraged me to cut down on and save more).
    • The new (new to me, at least) credit report feature is very cool because you don't have to bother with the multiple other credit report websites. Any time you log into your account, you get a free credit report.

    Cons :

    • The reason I got into Mint early on was for two main reasons.
      • the interface and the budget/spending information delivered was very simple, and easy to digest.
      • email alerts on my spending was helpful in encouraging me to save Recently, the web and mobile apps are very overwhelming.
      • There's so much information on your screen that you don't know where to look, which has been discouraging to my desire to log in and check my budget regularly.
    • At this point, I honestly prefer logging into my account separately because their interfaces are so much simpler. Additionally, there are SO MANY ads for credit cards, savings accounts, car/home loans, etc. Mint claims that these are recommendations but when there are multiple "recommendations" on each page, I call it an ad.
    • The email alerts have become very underwhelming, and sporadic.
    • Sometimes, I get two emails a week and other times I get one email a month. This defeats the whole purpose of getting REGULAR email alerts.
    • And when I do get the emails, they're lacking in information.

    I've been a Mint user for years since it was first rolled out, and I could finally get out of the quagmire that I found myself in with personal finance tools like Quicken or Microsoft Money. The problem was that those products forced you to either keep your transaction records up to date through meticulous data entry or cumbersome import processes from your banking sites, which if you had multiple accounts at different banks or investment firms, could be a real drag. Not to mention they often failed to import properly.

    Along came Mint, and the way it works is rather ingenious and simultaneously controversial (more on that later). After you set up an account on Mint, you link your financial accounts to your Mint account by setting up the banking information and providing your credentials for accessing your bank account.

    Mint then pulls in the transaction data and syncs this for you each time you log into your account. It is immensely satisfying to be able to see how much I have in all my accounts without having to manually enter all the data myself, or visit six different sites. Mint also handles credit card accounts, mortgages, home value assessments, auto value, investment accounts, and just about any kind means you can think of for storing money save under your mattress or in your sock drawer. In most cases Mint will categorize these transactions for you by guessing from a scan of the transaction information, but any AI is imperfect, and you will have to do some categorization or correction yourself if you want truly accurate record-keeping.

    I say it is immensely satisfying but also somewhat worrisome that all my banking information can be found in a single place. For that reason its worth noting that Mint takes security seriously, but it is nonetheless controversial that it could pose a serious risk if it were ever hacked and its customers' information stolen. Bear this in mind, but Mint is definitely worth a look if you'd rather leave the bookkeeping to someone else.

    Pros :

    • Vastly more convenient than traditional personal finance products.
    • Smart enough to link to accounts of all kinds, including investment and mortgages.

    Cons :

    • Potential security risks are substantial and should be carefully considered.

    There are so many applications on the market that allow you to manage your personal finances but very few are easy to use. What makes Mint special is its simplicity to deploy and use on a daily basis. It handles most aspects of basic accounting and help you keep track of your banking records, all in one centralized interface.

    Pros :

    • Mint is an online service with no data saved on your local device. This has several advantages such as not storing sensitive data on your device in case it is stolen or lost.
    • The other advantage is that since it is not device dependent, you are able to access the same information regardless of which device you are using at the moment. Mint is free of use. The software is able to make suggestions based on who you are banking with. It will tell you which bank offers lower interest rates for loans for example.
    • Mint can send you alerts in the event of suspicious activity on any of your accounts.
    • You are able to create different budgets for specific areas and Mint will monitor your accounts and credit cards activity according to your preferences.
    • The system is able to alert you quickly if you go over budget in any area before it is too late.
    • Mint is one of the best of its kind because of its ease of use and simple deployment, you are able to get started in just minutes.

    Cons :

    • Mint is an online service with no option for a local software install. Therefore you have to trust the company with your personal and sensitive banking information.
    • Online services, despite their security of lack of, often get hacked and your information is compromised.
    • In order to use the platform, you must enter your personal login information to your online bank account.
    • I personally do not feel very comfortable entering this kind of information regardless of the site. If this information gets compromised, my personal financials could be at risk.

    Mint - in concept - is a great app for bringing together all of your financial accounts. In reality, these connections often break in Mint, unfortunately. Fortunately, in some regards, Mint stores your financial transactions over time, so when it comes time to do taxes or accounting, it's all right there saved and ready for you. I even lost a bank account once, and Mint still had the financial data I could go back on for tax purposes, life saver. Mint can also help with budgeting too, because with each financial record, there's a category associated with it. Many times records are automatically associated with transactions, but also many times you have to adjust things manually too. Though once you have the categories set, then you can set budget limits or alerts per month and also see charts and graphs on your spending patterns. Mint is basically a way to bring all of your financial accounts together, for better organization and management. Rather than say using a spreadsheet, or nothing at all, or checking your accounts infrequently, with everything in one place, you're more likely to check your accounts more often. Accounts being bank accounts, credit cards, loans, PayPal accounts and more. There is also great financial education on the site.

    Pros :

    • Brings all of your financial accounts together.
    • Helps with budgeting.
    • Financial education on the site.
    • Free, except there's ads woven into the site.

    Cons :

    • Ads.
    • Integrations break often.

    Mint.com is the go-to tool for personal finance among people trying to save towards goals and seeking better granularity with their day to day purchases. It automatically tracks and categorizes your purchases for you. This simple solution allows for clear and easy visibility into all transactions across all accounts in one place. Within a few months, it can greatly affect how you view your personal finances and can have an instant impact on improving your financial situation. Monthly graphs and goals allow you to analyze your personal finances to the level of visibility businesses achieve with their balance sheet and cash flow statements. Any bank worth using is fully integrated with the system. Once accounts are setup from the beginning data synchronizes without the user even noticing it. Having all your financial accounts in one place greatly simplifies your personal life and helps improve budgeting. Everything is personalized to your accounts so you can eliminate the fees and headaches that come about if you’re only checking your statements at the end of each month. Enhancements are being added all the time, and now besides containing all financial information from banking to loans, the application can even automatically pull your credit score on a regular basis. In addition to being able to run reports on financials, setting personal goals and monitoring progress account alerts can be set up to automatically email you based on personalized threshold you determine. All around Mint.com is a simple solution with an incredible feature set which can truly improve your financial life on the path to achieving financial freedom.

    Pros :

    • Easy to use, once an account is added you have it there forever.
    • Allows for easy integration across most banks and even provides insight into your credit score.
    • A great place to store all of your personal financial information.

    Cons :

    • If you have one of the few banks that doesn't smoothly integrate (IE TD BANK) it could be annoying and difficult to deal with.
    • Also, whenever you update any password in any banking system, you must then also update it in Mint.com.
    • Although this hassle doesn't come up often TD Bank's cards integrated so poorly it actually was the deciding factor in why I close my credit card account with them.

    Mint is by far the best scheduler and financial management software. It is extremely user-friendly and has been rated the best by almost all its users. Its accuracy and scalability can be defined with it being popularly amongst people belonging to all income groups. It can accommodate large volumes of data and is a best fit for all individuals. This software is compatible with all devices and also offers free applications for Android and iPhones both along with support to iPads and other devices. Mint is by far the easiest software to create an account and get started, and its security can be understood from the fact that it did not add payment gateways in order to secure the present data. It allows the user to automatically track his personal finances and budget his money into various heads. Mint can be integrated to all major Bank accounts and the synchronizations starts quick and simple. One can track every penny spent from his accounts without manual entering it. If logged in it sends notifications and updates on all transactions happening in real time.

    Pros :

    Compared to all its competitors, Mint provides large volume of features for compassion and analysis of personal expenses. It’s an Intuitive product and suggests corrective actions of errors based on the historical data of the user, if things have gone out of track. It is a very secure platform, where even if your account gets hacked no one will be able to make any transaction or transfer any funds or pay any bills, at maximum one can see your account balance and other details but no money transfer can take place.

    Cons :

    In order to update your account with the transactions made and deposits added, you have to login with your username and password every time into Mint. Mint does not allow you to make any payments or transfers and neither has the capacity to issue checks and transfer notes which is an upcoming feature of Mint being long awaited. Mint allows a lot of automation and in worse month scenarios it becomes a tedious task to remove the existing commands and re-add them once things are sorted.

    Mint is my life saver when it comes to tracking personal finances. It allows you to connect your bank accounts so that you can track how much you have in your savings and checking accounts, as well as your total debts from the various credit cards you've linked. It even alerts you when you have a credit payment upcoming, either via email or via the dashboard, depending on the email preferences you've set up.

    Pros :

    Mint is easy to use and a great budget resource. My favorite feature of Mint is that it allows you to create budgets and track spending. Then, as you make purchases, Mint will categorize them into your different budget categories and show you (and alert you if you authorize it) when you are over budget. I like that you can move transactions into other categories if Mint accidentally labels them incorrectly. You can create budgets that roll over the money you didn't spend into the next month if you'd like, or even create budgets that you'll only need every 2 months or whatever length of time you choose. You can view your spending from month to month to see which categories you are spending the most on and how this compares to the national average. The graphs and bar charts are super visual and helpful for seeing your finances in clearer focus. I also like that you can create specific goals, either large or small, and set aside money when you'd like to go towards these goals. Plus, there's a great mobile app that helps you track your budgets while you're on the go.

    Cons :

    The Mint emails can be a bit overwhelming so I would recommend altering your settings so that you don't get an email when you go $5 over budget in a category.
