A web site for consumers automatically categorizes your transactions so you immediately know how much you’re spending on food, gas, groceries, entertainment, and more. Within minutes of adding your accounts, you will get a complete overview of all your spending. Handy reporting tools allow you to drill down into individual categories to see how often and how much you spend at your favorite merchants.
Cash purchases can be a blind spot when viewing spending. Mint users can split ATM withdrawals into categories to show where the cash was actually spent. Mint also automatically detects ATM fees and will categorize the fee portion of the transaction for you. Likewise, mixed purchases from a department store like Target can now be split into the appropriate categories. Splitting transactions helps Mint users to tidy up even the hardest to manage corners of your finances.
Spending trends throughout Mint show you your spending history for different merchants and categories automatically.
