Is there a way to have only the transactions from a specific credit card show up in a budget?

My wife and I use separate credit cards to buy gas.  I would like to set up two different budgets to track this separately.  But right now both credit card transactions get lumped together under Gas and Fuel.  Is there a way to specify that gas charges from Card A get put into Budget A and gas charges from Card B go to Budget B?

Answer

So you can do this, but you will have to monitor the budgets for a time.

Setup the two budgets and as you see the transaction come in, make sure it goes to the right budget. Over time Mint will catch on and pretty accurately (not always perfect) place the transaction in the right budget.

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.
