How to stop auto renaming transactions?


I am wondering if there's any way to stop Mint from renaming or truncating the transaction detail/names as it appears on credit card statements? More often than not I find those renaming/truncated names rather off the mark and doesn't describe the merchant or the transaction correctly. While the item listing on the original statement may look complicated, it at least doesn't misinform. Also I have not set up auto-rename rules of any kind. Mint seems to do this with every new restaurant or merchant I go to. Please advise. Thanks.

I have given up. I don't use this service anymore because of this and I think the company is just a cheap fraud since it is so totally unresponsive to it's users. This issue should not be difficult to fix technically. Why is it not addressed? This request has been made by hundreds of users and they just ignore it. I can't understand it. The product is made unusable by this and yet the flaw is totally ignored.

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.
