Mint can be a powerful tool when it comes to monitoring your finances. The service helps you track how much money you’re spending and on what, and alerts you when bills are due and when you might finally pay off your credit card.
Mint.com is a free web-based personal financial management service for the US and Canada created by entrepreneur Aaron Patzer. Mint originally provided account aggregation through a deal with Yodlee, but has since moved to using Intuit for connecting to accounts. Mint's primary service allows users to track bank, credit card, investment, and loan transactions and balances through a single user interface. Users can also make budgets and goals, like saving $1000. Users also have the option to manually enter cash or check transactions.
