In Goals, can the promo rate APR expiration year options be updated to include 2016? And can this feature be enhanced to reflect how promo APRs work at Discover?

The goals section, in the pay of credit cards area, needs to be updated to allow entry of promotional APRs that expire in 2016. Presently, the only options are 2014 and 2015. But I have several 0% APR offers that expire in 2016. Please update the drop-down lists accordingly. 

Also, the credit card payoff UI does not allow users to enter multiple concurrent tranches of promotional balances on one card. For example, I have 3 tranches of promo APR offers on my Discover card, each with different balances and expiry dates, e.g.,

- $XXX at 0% APR until 6/27/15, 

- $YYY at 0% APR until 10/27/15, and 

- $ZZZ at 0% APR until 6/27/16. 

These tranches work such that any payments I make are applied in order of the balance that is next in line to expire (6/27/15 in my case). The Mint UI for the payoff credit card goal only lets me pick one of these promo APR expiration dates. This makes it impossible for your debt payoff recommendation tool to give accurate advice.

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.
