New Costco Citi card is added in mint. Some transactions show up but not all. Recent transactions missing;e.g., credit card payments. Why are some transactions missing?

I'm reconciling my accounts for July 2016.  I noticed that a cash payment from my checking account posted to mint for a credit card payment made on my new Costco Citi card that replaced a previous Costco card with American Express. However this payment does not show in my citi card transactions on mint.  Transfers should cancel each other out and equal zero.  In this instance, I only have the one side of the transfer.  I see the cash leaving my checking account in mint.  I do not see the corresponding credit coming in the citi card transactions in mint.  Once I noticed this, I looked for other missing transactions and there were other transactions missing for July 2016 as well.  

This essentially double counts the expenses.  It counts them when they hit my credit card account and it counts them when I pay my credit card.

Thanks for the help.

Answer

One thing to check- make sure your Cash or Autopayment is captured as a credit card payment.  To do this, edit the transaction to Transfer- Credit Card Payment.  This should solve at least the problem of the credit card payment being a 'double expense'.

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.
