Is there a way to categorize all transactions from one credit card as the same thing, as soon as they come in? I want them to stay set that way automatically.

I have a Chase credit card linked to my checking/savings. So, when activated, it automatically showed up in Mint four months ago. I didn't want it to, but at the time didn't know you could Hide an account. So, it's cause some issues because it's hard to tell when I've actually paid for something, or its just showing up as a transaction. I can't Hide it now because then all my budgets are off, since it doesn't just Hide them going forward, but back too. Therefore, I think the best option is to have the transactions from that card auto-categorize as one thing so I know they haven't actually been paid for. Is there a way to do this?

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.
