Citi card not updating - Mint says call Tech Support, Tech Support says contact Mint...

My Citibank Credit Card is in error.

The message in Mint says:

"Citibank is currently preventing some customers from updating accounts within Mint. Please contact them at 1-800-347-4934"

However, when I contact them at that number they report that they do not support mint and cannot help, and redirect me back to Mint support.

Is there some magic phrase I should be uttering to the tech support to get to the proper place, or is Mint working with them themselves? As an end user, there's apparently nothing I can do. I can log into the Citi website fine, which is as far as End User technical support goes.

I called 1-800-347-4934, and spoke to someone in technical support. She said that they had received multiple calls about this issue, and they were aware of it and working on a solution. She couldn't give me a timeframe for completion. I'm encouraged that they are not blowing off the call though.

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.
