I now have 1000's of duplicate transactions polluting my entire mint history. Am I really expected to manually mark thousands of transactions as duplicate?

I received a notice that I was over budget in several budget items this morning and when I started looking into it, it was duplicate transactions.  So I started marking them as Duplicate then I saw it was nearly every transaction for the month, then I realized it was for my entire mint history (~8 months) which is 1000s of transactions.  Am I really expected to mark all of these as duplicate?  Is this something I can expect to be cleared up by Mint?  If I really take the time to mark 1000s of transactions as duplicate how do I now it will not happen again next week?  I guess I will abandon Mint and go with a combination of YNAB and Personal Capital.  Have been using both in parallel and the combination seems to be a good replacement. Was using Quicken (since 1993) but since they are abandoning that had to find a replacement, thought Mint was it but this is unacceptable and has destroyed my confidence. Look into YNAB and Personal Capital

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.
