some of my transactions are not showing up in budgets

I have some transactions, all from the same Virgin America Credit card, which have the correct categories assigned to them in transactions. But, they are NOT showing up in the budgets for those categories. Why?

For Example, there's a transaction for 25 dollars labeled "groceries", but my march budget for Groceries still says Zero.

There are 4 or 5 transactions like this.


Hello chelsea.clarke,

If you assign a transaction to a category but do not have a specific, separate budget for that category Mint will put it into  Everything Else. Another possibility is that your cache is remembering the old data, so you might want to clear cookies and cache. If these do not work, Contact Mint for assistance at

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.
