Resolved: Closed Accounts try to Login

Mint is now trying to connect to all of my old and closed accounts to get updated transactions.

A couple of days ago (June 23rd or 24th), when I logged into Mint, it said that some of my accounts had errors. When I reviewed them, the accounts that had errors were ones that have been marked as closed for a few years and I have not used since.

  • A Discover savings account that (according to Mint) was last synced 3 years ago (and has been marked as closed since that time).
  • An Everbank checking account that (according to Mint) was last synced 3 years ago (and has been marked as closed since that time).
  • Three Bank of America accounts that (according to Mint) were last synced 5 years ago (and have been marked as closed since that time). The three are two checking accounts and one savings account.
  • A Fidelity 401k account that (according to Mint) was last synced 3 years ago (and has been marked as closed since that time).

I do have a Discover credit card account, but that is syncing just fine and I also have another Bank of America checking account, plus a credit card account and those are syncing just fine as well. For Everbank and Fidelity, I have not used either for years.

So, what's going on? Why have these old accounts all of a sudden been added to the transaction attempts in Mint?

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.
