A very efficient personal finance management tool to track spendings, create budgets, and more

Mint is a popular and reputable personal finance management tool that is a great resource for us to understand better and manage our finances.

We can then set budget goals for each category and track our spending over time to see where they are over or under budget.Bill reminders: Mint reminds us when bills are due so that we can avoid late fees.Investment tracking: Mint allows us to track investments such as stocks, mutual funds, and other securities.Mobile app: Mint has a mobile app that allows us to access our financial information on the go.

Limited investment tracking: Mint does not offer as much investment tracking as other personal finance management tools, but not to the extent that it becomes a huge downside.

Mint is a decent financial management solution, albeit limited in scope with questionable privacy

PROS

Mint is relatively easy to setup and allows you to link a broad category of accounts including: bank accounts, credit cards accounts, utilities (such as gas and electric), internet, and even investment accounts. In addition, Mint supports a broad number of companies within each category such as Wells Fargo, Chase, Xcel Energy, Xfinity and Robinhood. Mint provides a fairly robust set of tools to manage your finances and set budgets. You can create categories for your purchases, and Mint will attempt to automatically assign your purchases to a specific category. Perhaps one of Mint's best aspects, it is completely free.

CONS

It is not unusual for linked accounts to suddenly become unlinked, and while Mint is supposed to notify when that happens, it often does not. To relink an account you must go into the Mint app, go into the account settings, and manually relink each affected account. While the process is not difficult, when an account becomes unlinked you no longer get notifications when say a credit card bill is due. The security and privacy of Mint has been brought into question by many sources, since linking accounts gives Mint nearly full access to those accounts. I personally have never had an issue, but it is something to consider. The overall Mint interface can be rather clunky and difficult to navigate.

Okay but not great budget app

A cost effective choice to track expenses but I hope the interface would be more minimal. Too many suggestions. If the pending transactions could be more up to date, that would be fantastic.

PROS

I like their self-explanatory and compartmentalized features. Personally I don't think saving accounts should be counted as Cash, which is more like Emergency Fund. But since I don't have much savings anyway, it doesn't matter much.

CONS

Never update pending transactions. It used to grey out pending ones. Users can see but are unable to edit. Too many ads

Unbelievable!

The best way by far to track your finances and budget.

PROS

Mint is a great way to track all your personal finances, the mobile interface is great and it is easy to link all your accounts.

CONS

Nothing bad to say here, at points it was hard to link certain accounts and they would not refresh, but those issues have for the most part been resolved.
