Chase checking account not updating-- error message "Duplicate account detected!"

For the last four days, mint has not shown any updates for my Chase checking account. When I open up the accounts window, there is an error message that reads "Duplicate account detected!" although I have not added any new checking accounts recently (or ever). I did add a new Chase Freedom card about a month ago, but until four days ago all of my accounts have been updating normally. When I try to "Fix it", nothing is resolved. Will I have to delete the account (and consequently, as the message warns, lose all historical data from this account) in order to solve the issue?

Thanks for your help.


Hello a.d.kimmett,

When I look at your Chase accounts I see two accounts, one added Feb 2013, and one added Sept. 2013. They are both in error state. Here is a Mint FAQ on how to handle duplicate accounts 

Thank you,
Mint Maggie

People come to Mint for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
