So frustrated with Mint!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Our bank was recently bought out and I was happy to see that our new bank was on the list of banks compatible with mint.com because it's something I've been wanting to try for quite some time. However, the honeymoon was very short. It doesn't even work half the time. I can log in and see all my stuff but my balance and transactions don't update. Or they attempt to and I get an error message. I know it's a free service and you get what you pay for but so many people have raved about it!! Am I the only one with these problems?

I have had the same problems. It would be really amazing if it worked all the time, but as it is, I never know if the numbers are current or not. It's really frustrating.

It really depends on the bank. I had TCFBank for YEARS (finally got rid of them last year) and even though it's "accepted" through Mint, it rarely if ever worked due to TCF's security protocols.

I would check out Mint's forum and see if anyone else is having the same problem with your bank.

Same problem here! I hate it, the transactions are NEVER current. I've asked at the forums and it's always "It's a temporary glitch, try again in a little bit". Yeah, not helpful. I gave up, I don't even go there anymore.

Hmm - I love it. It really helps me to be able to see all accounts in one place and track spending and goals for saving. However, different banks have different rules about when mint can access their transactions. Have you tried in the evenings? And ditto checking the forums - someone may have resolved a similar problem.
