BofA line items not being categorized -- all items return "CHECK" and nothing else.

Bank of America (BofA) accounts do not update with specific information of each transaction.  All transactions simply come back as "CHECK" and are categorized as "CHECK".  Until last week there was no issue and since about February 5-7th this issue has begun.  There is no point of using Mint if I have to re-categorize each item by hand comparing to my BofA online statement myself.  When will this be fixed?

Answer

it seems to me that it always does this until it recognizes the payee. then it seems to categorize properly. i recently reset my bank credentials and it cleared up a lot of problems

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.
