Can I get a notification at the end of the day with how much I spent per day (and also at a digest at the end of the week - with total spent for the week)?

The monthly budgets are great but I need a more day to day number — for example, I'm trying to stay around $x dollars a day or $xx a month for spending (outside of my known expenses like rent etc).

Is it possible to set up a notification or an email that tells me how much I've spent for the day at the end of the day, and one at the end of the week with weekly expenses?

Answer

Hello jkarle,

Unfortunately there isn't any sort of daily summary available, but I do see how that could be beneficial and I'm happy to tag this as a feature request so the developers can see it for future consideration.  However there are weekly summary emails (or texts) available.  You're likely already getting weekly summary emails since they are on by default, but you can check and/or change those settings by going to Accounts at the very top of the page, then click on the Email & Alerts tab.

Regards,
Jesse

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.
