Transactions that start with "ACH Debit" have the vendor name cut off. I have to go to my bank statement to find out the vendor name. Ick.

For example, all of the following transaction descriptions (from my bank statement) get downloaded to Mint as just "ACH Debit":

 - ACH Debit - ING Reliastar
 - ACH Debit - Aurora School
 - ACH Debit - Safeway

I've been having the same problem for several months. This, after many many years of working properly. So frustrated, I decided to test out several competing solutions, both on the web and on the desktop. And guess what? They all import these transactions properly.

Mint has many bugs, but this one is causing me to evaluate moving to another solution. It REALLY doesn't help for customer support people to make false claims about the cause. It's obvious that the banks are delivering the same information, and that the problem here is a bug in Mint's software. Blame the customers, blame the banks. At the end of the day, if you can't deliver the functionality customers have come to expect and rely upon, who cares what your excuses are. There are other solutions out there.

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.
