Hi snoz4343,

Unfortunately we're not able to see your financial information so it's tricky to troubleshoot what might have happened here. However, I do know that budgets function entirely on transactions and the categories they're placed in. Click on the name of a budget and it should show you all the transactions going into it. See if you can find any erroneous transaction information, and review carefully your transaction history.

It may also be a temporary technical error. Try logging out and remaining off the account for 24 hours and come back to it, but if even then the situation does not improve, you will need to reach out to our technical support for further assistance. So that we can better assist in that case, please use the Contact Mint support form or use our chat option from the Support page (appears during business hours only, 5-5 Pacific Mon-Fri) so our support team can gather data about your specific situation, communicate with you directly and further assist you.

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.
