Problems At Mint.com

Wednesday, June 8, 2011 - 1:11 PM
From the Consumerist:
Mint.com started as a darling of free online personal finance management tools but the love affair has soured for some users since the site was acquired by Intuit back in 2009.

Ken, have u experienced any similar problems with mint? I only recall positive feedback from you. Also, have you changed your online banking strategy at all, regarding concerns with hacking? Or do you remain confident with mint and banking security in general?

You have a good memory. I did that Mint.com review in February 2010. The main issue that I've had with Mint.com has been the problems with reliably logging into the accounts. The security questions/answers complicate this. If more banks follow ING Direct and develop read-only access for Mint.com-like services, that will eliminate this problem and make things more secure.

My MINT keeps telling me that ING charged me a $3.50 ATM fee but I dont even use an ATM card from ING and ING has no record of any fee.

I know its an advertisment but it clearly saying I was hit with a fee when I was NOT.

Anyone ?

 

ING DIRECT - checking charged you an ATM Fee of $3.50 These frustrating fees can add up quickly. Open an account that refunds your ATM fees from Schwab. Learn More.
