Title: Mint.com- tracks your finances
Post by: aryeh1 on October 13, 2013, 03:19:28 PM
Anyone here use it? I wonder if its safe to provide all your bank accts,  CC accts etc.

Also it seems it logs in to your accounts everytime you log on.

Its supposed to be safe. Even with login its a read-only login.

I've been using it for many years (since it started ) and I love it! For me the beat part is that my bank makes me crazy when I log in from other computers but mint doesn't have that problem so I log into mint from anywhere

I peronally wasn't crazy about it when I used it
It didn't properly sync with some of my accounts and didn't update account balances properly... Granted this was about a year ago and things probably improved
I'm using check.me now and so far it's good except it doesn't sync with citi cards for some odd reason

I've been using it for a while and it's been great. I used it to make budget estimates when I was getting ready to start house-hunting because it compiled and categorized all my transactions from all my (quite numerous) accounts.

It works great but all the AP BB spend transactions make it unreliable for budget purposes.

I'm assuming AP is Amazon Payments, not sure what BB is. Either way, those type of transactions should utlimately have an offsetting transaction. If they're labeled properly you should have no problem budgeting around it.

BB is Bluebird.
I've been using Mint for a while. I primarily use Quicken, but sometimes it won't post charges for several days, and then Mint gives me a better picture. Also, the mobile app is pretty good.

BB is supported - I've got both my & DH's accounts set up in mint, and am able to see all transactions from each account (and assign categories, etc.).

I've been using mint for years - it's the only way I know what I spend where; Highly recommended! There are only a couple of my accounts that don't synch up, and I don't use those accounts often, anyways (retail cards are most susceptible, IME).

Yesterday I received the LAN card with a 17K CL, and also received a letter with the CC card agreement, but not the card itself.

If you got the agreement I'd guess your card is processing and is on its way. Could be a delay with them waiting for CC to assign your CC number.

You would have to edit the transaction to show the split.

For example if you spent 503.95 you would edit the transaction to show 3.95 as a fee and 500 as the transfer(or however you would like to classify it)

Insanely annoying about Mint.com is how it renames transactions without notifying you.

For example, a purchase made at a grocery- Boro Park Foodmart, which shows up in my statements as BP Food, appeared in Mint as BP and was categorized as a Gas & Fuel purchase. Totally messes me up.

I've searched and apparently there's no fix for this...

Agreed but I generally go through all my recent transactions to make sure there were no unauthorized charges and while I do that I double check the categories.

Mint allows you to enter URL if your bank is not on their list. Check made me request a new provider. This was their response

Dear User,

Thank you for using Check and taking the time to request a new provider.

We often release new providers.  We choose them based on ease of aggregation and popularity of request. Once your requested provider becomes available, you will receive a notice via email.

I've been using them since they started and use them to track all my finances. I also use a program called "Checks" which tracks my due dates, you can also pay your bills from there but I dont. I've been very happy with both of them I set up budgets and it lets me know exactly how much I have left to spend in a specific category. Wish it tracked my other bills so I could use only program.

Happens.
Check (PageOnce) made me once a millionaire for a night..
It was the night after $AAPL split 1:7, they already had figured out that I now have 7 times the amount of shares I had  the day before, but for some reason still priced each share at the old price..
I remember opening the app and it took me a minute figuring out what happened... Probably one of the best 60 seconds of my life...
I still have the screenshot, it helps me get through a down day at times.

Wiki added

I saw mentioned here and in other threads that mint.com is secure because it's 'read only'

it is simply not true;

to clarify:
                  Mint needs to access your financial accounts read-only since they don't do any transactions.
                  the user-name and password you provide is decrypt-able since they have to login.
                   if any hacker hacks their database and gets your user-name and password they can make any transaction they want.
unless
                   you provide Mint.com with a read only access token.

Chase https://banking.chase.com/AccessManager
Access and Security Manager allows you, as an administrator, to set up authorized users with different levels of access to view or manage your accounts. Based on your settings, your authorized users will have the ability to view or manage account information, schedule transactions, or approve transactions scheduled by other users. You can also view detailed reports to help you track changes to your user's access and their transaction activity.

Is there a way to have Mint hide all my AU accounts?

It's annoying that I see each amex card twice - once for my main card and once for the AU - each of my online amex accounts is for one person, including their primary cards and their AUs. I can hide each AU account from Mint manually, but...

TIA

I don't think it will tell you what each individual charge on your credit card is for, but maybe you don't need that.

Interesting info. Basically there is a realistically secure way for banks to operate with mint but it won't happen because it will simply turn banks into a commodity where all the real money making opportunities for cross selling and upselling will go to mint rather than the underlying bank.

Would folks here be interested in an app that is "Mint within Excel"? I built an app for my personal use that runs on my computer and logs into all my accounts and then dumps the raw data (transactions + balances) straight into Excel so that I can use it there as I wish. It also emails me every morning with a list of all new transactions since the last refresh so I can quickly make sure there is no fraud/suspicious activity while its still fresh in my mind. once you have the raw data, you're only limited by your imagination in terms of what you track. I have a nice dashboard setup so that I can track overall net worth across all accounts, spend on each card (great for tracking minimum spends), balance on cards before statement closes, etc. 

I've given it to a few friends but curious if people here would be interested enough in it to pay for it. Right now only works for macs but if people are actually willing to pay for it I would consider making it compatible for Windows.

does not piggyback off mint, goes straight to the bank and saves to Excel. The downside is that doesn't support nearly as many banks as Mint because i have to do each one individually (which is also why I would probably never make it available publicly for free) but  the plus side is that you don't need to give your usernames and passwords to Mint (the primary reason I refuse to use Mint). Everything is stored encrypted locally on your computer.

True, it competes at some level with Mint but its not meant for the mass market. To me, the two key features that it has that Mint doesn't are 1) security and 2) the raw data in excel. Until the banks come out explicitly and say that I'm not liable when Mint is hacked or provide a read only password, I will never sign up for Mint.

If you're playing the game, its very hard to be on top of your finances without some tools and I'd personally be happy to pay a small amount for a tool that could save me missing minimum spend on even one card or a recurring bill on some old CC I forgot about. I know that most people won't care enough about the security issues to stop using Mint but I suspect there are still enough people to make it worth my while.

+1, and +1 on the Windows compatibility thing (though you may need to make two separate apps)

If it was free I would totally try it, and probably integrate it with my own Access database.

It would need to be able to do all banks and CCs, though, to get me to switch from Mint. I don't love that giving all my passwords to MInt, but I do it anyways because I feel that the benefits outweigh the risks (if you think I'm wrong, separate discussion :) ).

One potential issue is that I'm assuming it only runs when your computer is on, so you can't get email alerts to fraud over Y"T/etc.

I wonder if you could make it open source - then anyone who wanted could add new banks and stuff. You might not be able to charge for it, though.

Yes would need to be two separate apps but I've designed it so that the bulk of the app (connecting to banks and saving to excel) can work on both. Still need to port over the UI part though.

Probably won't be free. Can't justify spending my time to maintain/support for nothing

Out of curiosity, which banks/CCs do you use that you would need supported

I definitely hear the $ aspect. I wonder if there's any other way to monetize it - maybe a free app, and then a paid app with more features?

CCs I use: amex, chase, barclay, discover, fidelity, BBVA, some store CCs too. It would also need to be able to store more than one login per website (eg: for a spouse) and easily indicate which is which.

Banks: right now Chase and M&T, but I'd like to know that one day when I open an account somewhere else, that I could have it connect too.

That's true about the email alerts. I'm also thinking of vacations, chol hamoed, any time you are away but getting emails on your phone.

Out of curiosity, what programming language are you working in?

If mint isn't working out for you, I would give https://www.personalcapital.com/ (https://www.personalcapital.com/) a shot.

Similar, but more thought out IMO.

the only large drawback that I see is that it does not track pending transactions from chase, while mint does (when it works...)

Yup... can't even change the card names!
If you have a few chase cards you need to remember each ones last 4... ridiculous.

Mint bills shows it to me when I add a new account. It will name each account in this format: "random bank - ****"

If you have legacy accounts from when it was called Pageonce or Check, it will have whatever name you made for it then.

I know anything can be hacked, but here all my info is in one place such as all credit cards accounts etc, Vs someone would have to hack each bank separately?

I used to use One Receipt together with mint.com so that I can see the details of the charges...now that One Receipt has closed down has anyone used anything similar?
Also does anyone use Waveapps? looks like it does everything that mint does plus keep track of receipts.

Yes you can add your Paypal account to mint.  The balance is counted like a bank account and will show transactions.

Being that it's dozens of aus its slowing down the whole app. Anyone have this? Any ideas? I unlinked it and linked it again and their all still there. Tia

There's no way around that. Even if your Amex login only shows the primaries in the account selection area, it's still showing all transactions for the account, including AU's (CMMIW). The transaction data is what Mint is pulling - no way to seaprate that.

It always showed transactions from aus. The problem is now aus are showing up as another account. So it has to refresh dozens of accounts every time.

Try it and see if it still picks up those transactions from the primary card. If it does, great. If not, set the AU's back to active.

For a while now, Mint hasn't been reading the transactions I make. When I log in (rarely, now), it's showing full access to all my accounts, but at the end of the week they email me that I've spent $0.

That's not when initially adding account. And all that does is it doesn't show it to you but since it's the same login it still has to update it
