All credit card transactions being categorized as "Credit Card Payment"

My credit card transactions used to automatically categorize into the appropriate category but lately most of my transactions are being categorized as "Credit Card Payment." Can you help me figure out why this is happening?


FYI, this is a public community board, so you'll have to share more info for a better answer.  I'll still take a shot with some additional questions though:

Do you have many "transaction rules" saved?  Are the descriptions for the transactions coming through accurately?  Are they showing the correct store names or are they somehow just showing the name of your institution?  If it's a "Citi Card" are the transactions just being labelled as "Citi" or "Chase" or the name of some other financial institution and not the correct name of the store, like "Home Depot" or "Ikea"?

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.
