I'm sorry that your'e having trouble with Chase in Mint. The error I'm seeing for all of you is for temporary connectivity issues, and these usually only last a few days. The errors all seem to have started around the 20th, so it should clear up very soon. However if you're still having trouble by Wednesday, then please use the I previously added my bank, now in error topic in the Contact Mint form to report this to our support team for further investigation. This will allow them to collect individual user data to aid in a resolution. I will check back the accounts of users in this thread at that time as well, and if I'm still seeing the same issue I will also report this internally. Thank you for your patience in the mean time.
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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
