How to re-connect Kohl's Charge with MInt??


I can't get my Kohl's account to work on MInt. It hasn't updated for over 6 months now. I keep trying and trying every now and then, but every time it doesn't work. I used to have this issue every once in awhile with Kohl's, but it would go away once I signed in again. Now, the problem is persistent and so my balance/etc info is really out of date on Mint, which makes it difficult to get a real picture of my finances on Mint.

The thing is, it says my account info is out of date and I need to answer my bank's (Kohl's Charge) security questions. I go to the Kohl's Charge page and do that, but then Mint says my bank info is incorrect and asks me to edit my bank info. I put in my username and password into the bank info section on Mint and it says it's incorrect.

But, it's not. It's exactly the info I use to login to my Kohl's account when I pay my bill, view statements, etc. I have no trouble logging in there, but Mint always says it's incorrect.

I let this problem go for awhile but now it's just too out-of-date and I want to be able to see my actual balances on my Mint Overview, and the account details.

Any help to fix this would be greatly appreciated! It feels like running in circles t keep putting in the same correct info only to be told it's wrong.



Hello lotusmoonfloweri,

I'm sorry about this! You'll need to report this through Contact Mint. When I look at your Kohl's account, I see that the error state reflects an issue with the challenge questions, but as you've gone in circles with that already, I won't ask you to try again. When you report this issue through Contact Mint, please be sure to include briefly what you have already tried and the length of time your account has been in this error state.

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.
