How do I connect/associate a cash withdrawal from chequing to a cash deposit on my visa?

I withdrew money and walked to over to the other bank to pay my visa (so there's no delay).  It shows immediately in my chequing account transactions but the only category I can assign it to is 'credit card payment'.  I would like to associate it with the visa I paid that that it reduces the balance rather than waiting until that transaction is eventually posted on my credit card.  If that's not possible does the app make the connection between the $500 w/d and the $500 deposit?

Hi radikt3,

You can't force a transaction to post earlier when it is pending - you could add it manually as a cash transaction, but this will likely result in duplicate transactions that you would have to mark as duplicates anyway, and not save you any effort.

Your best option is to wait for it to post normally. In most cases, the application will be able to tell that it was a transfer and categorize it as such. This way, it will not impact your budgets and trends negatively. If it does not, you can always change the category yourself on the Transactions page by clicking the category and making the proper adjustment.

Let us know if you need any further assistance.

Thanks,
Mint Mike

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.
