Auto categorizing transactions broken! Transactions completely missing from budget. How to fix?

Recently, I've been having to manually select the category of nearly every transaction because they don't show up in 'Budgets'.

Most of the time, it's auto-categorizing 'Deductible Meals' even though it's not a selection anywhere. Other correctly auto-categorized transactions, like 'Utilities', are shown to be set correctly, but they don't show up in my 'Utilities' budget or anywhere else, even the 'Everything Else' budget.

Around the same time, I tried to start a Quickbooks Online account, and it told me that it wasn't possible because I had a Mint account. Is there a way to fix this? It's driving me crazy!


Hello chamnit,

First of all, you can certainly have Quickbooks and Mint! We are doing a password integration for Intuit where you have one password for all Intuit logins.

Sometimes when users say their transactions are not showing up in the correct budget, it turns out that the budget has a sub-category association and the two names are not aligning. So be sure if you have Income budget, you are assigning the transaction to the correct budget.

If you need further assistance please Contact Mint at

Thank you,

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.
