Transactions marked TRANSFER not discoverable?

I marked deposits into a savings account as transfer. when I search the transactions they are gone and I am unable to find them under spending or income. Is there a way to find these transactions? (Ideally I would like to recategorize them as income.)

Answer

Transactions marked as transfers usually do not show up in Budgets & Trends, but you should still be able to go into the Transactions tab, type "transfer" in the search box and find all your transfer transactions.  I just tried on my account and found all the Credit Card Payments, Transfers, etc.  If these transactions really have disappeared and you believe they should not have, you should contact the Mint Support Team: https://www.mint.com/help/#more-help

The point of categorizing a transaction as a Transfer in Mint is to indicate that you didn't really gain or lose funds -- you just transferred them from one account to another.  That's not really income or spending since you're left with the same amount of overall assets after moving them from one account to another, and thus Mint does not display a transfer as income or spending.

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.
