Any one else seeing American Express transaction descriptions on Mint showing as a series of numbers instead of words?

It appears that the Amex fields 'additional information' and 'reference' numbers are showing on Mint as the transaction description now instead of the actual transaction description / merchant name.  Problem started Oct 29. Now all my Amex activity on Mint is nonsense numbers instead of names and all are Uncategorized. 


Hi bjdj,

We've discovered an issue with the way American Express accounts are reporting data and are investigating this. Please follow the thread below to be kept up to date on changes to the status of this situation as they come. I apologize in the meantime for any confusion or inconvenience caused.

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.
