Receiving foreign transaction fee alerts as emails. Any way to turn these off? Alerts for Bank Fees has a limit above what these foreign transaction alerts are at ($0.36)

Current alert settings, all for email:
  • Total Credit Available
  • Unusual Spending ($500)
  • Overbudget
  • Bank Fees ($10)
Email received: "You were charged a Foreign Transaction Fee of $0.36 in your Credit Union - Checking account!"


Hi mint,

I know it can be confusing to receive an alert that you shouldn't be. After checking your settings, we determined you shouldn't be getting these, so please Contact Mint technical support so our team can gather more data on this and escalate as necessary.

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.
