TIAA-CREF issues, transactions and account value.

I want to show screenshots so please see the attached files.

I just have two simple questions:

1. Why is the transaction that I deposit 250 bi-monthly showing up as 2 buys of 250 and one deposit of 500? Is this normal? I get confused because when I see a green number and an account on my transactions under the mint app, I think of it as income, so by looking at 250, 250 and 500, I quickly think thats a 1,000 income, but it's not since I only deposit 500 total per month.

2. Why is the price paid for a share under the tiaa-cref account show a price of over $1,700,000? I never paid that price for a share, i understand it's probably picking up a total amount for a fund or something, but why is that showing up on MY screen and gives me negative numbers as if I lost 99% of something..


It's just very buggy details also on Nelnet was not showing up but yet I was able to add it online so had to delete the mint app from phone and install again hoping that the app matches the online accounts.. but thats a different issue for a different email..

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.
