Certain transactions are categorized incorrectly, how can I change this association for future transactions? Ex: Coca Cola vending machine transactions.. are labeled

...Business services.

How can I create a rule that categorizes these transactions correctly in the future?

Answer

Hi razorbackblood06,

You can change these transactions permanently by going to the Transactions page, clicking on the transaction in question (do not click on the category yet, as this will not give you the option to permanently change it), and then clicking Edit Details. Then, click on the category when the Edit Details window is up and change the category from there.

After doing so, you should get a prompt to always use this categorization for this type of vendor going forward, and from then on it should always use that category whenever this transaction appears in your Mint account.

Let us know if you need any further assistance.

Regards,
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.
