Credit Card Transactions Appear as "Check"

A few months ago, all my transaction of Credit Card would appear with a specific description such as the merchant and stuff. But recently, they all just appears as "Check", and it's pretty annoying not knowing where the money was spent. Is there any way to fix this? I have wells fargo credit card

ttly15,

I'm sorry that you're having trouble with credit card transactions in Mint, I understand how that would be frustrating.  I can't say for sure what would cause the descriptions to all show as Check like that, but it sounds like we may need to adjust our aggregation scripts for that financial institution.  Please open a ticket with the I have a problem with transactions topic in the Contact Mint form so that our support team can further investigate this issue for you.  In the meantime, my only suggestion is to manually change the description for those transactions; you can see the original description from the bank's website by clicking the transaction and then clicking Edit Details that appears right under it.  

Regards,
Jessie

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.
