Would a little cash help with the constant account update issues?

Just a little friendly advice/opinion: At least half the time one or more of my accounts is not updating and the latest (Macy's CC) has not been updated for weeks. My understanding is that the whole point of Mint is to give users a complete financial picture in one place and in return Mint gets a ton of personal information and a captive advertising audience. I'm finding myself relying less and less on Mint because I know I'll have to fix accounts as soon as I log in. Why not switch to a subscription-based service and use the $$ to fix the problems? I used to pay for Quicken upgrades every year and would gladly subscribe if I could rely on Mint.

(BTW - a Known Issue is not the same as a Resolved Issue. From comments on this board I can tell that it irritates users when mods mark clearly open issues as resolved.)


100% AGREE!  Frustrating!  Need to find a better option.

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.
