Cancelled Credit Card

I have changed my BMO Air miles credit card due to a $99/year fee (switched to a different rewards card) to a non-annual fee BMO Air-miles card. This has resulted in BMO changing my credit card number (which I have not yet received). In turn, Mint is showing the error "We cannot connect to your bank. Make sure the login you use there is updated in Mint." I do not want to loose the historical data of my spending under the old credit card number, but I do want this error to disappear. Please advise.

Just be patient and let that institution be in an error state for now.  If you delete the account, you immediately and irretrievably lose all your transaction data.  An error state is far more preferable to most other things that can happen.  When you log into BMO, do you show the new card yet?  Does it still show the old card (which it sounds like you closed)?  When BMO shows your new account, then it will be safe to try to fix the connection.

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.
