Mint: Refreshing Money Management
Posted by Mac in the wired 11 years ago
Mint is the freshest, most intelligent way for you to manage your money online. Not only is Mint free, it saves you money. While existing personal finance software "solutions" require hours to set up, a passion for accounting (is that possible?) and hours of weekly maintenance, Mint is virtually effortless.  
With Mint, you can be fully up and running in less than five minutes. After that, revolutionary, patent-pending Mint technology does the rest, with virtually no more work required. It automatically pulls together your bank, credit union and credit card data, and provides up-to-date and amazingly accurate views of your financial life - from the big picture to specific details, in a friendly and intuitive way.  
In addition, Mint goes beyond visibility and analysis; providing personalized money-saving and money-making suggestions. Mint provides users an average of $1,000 in savings opportunities during their first session. Plus, Mint is accessible from your desktop, laptop or cellphone.  
Mint is safe and secure; it never knows your personal identity and it provides bank level data security.
shigpit: In theory, this looks awesome. In practice, i would be afraid of looking at this with my own data in it. Because if it's not going to pay my bills, it's not going to help me account for where all my money goes.  
If anyone is using this, I'm interested in hearing what you have to say about it.
noctolator: It's good. And it can tell you where your money is going because you can categorize and classify everything, and then see the nifty pie charts. What I'd love is easy output to Excel.
Darwish: Anyone here using this?
