Is there a way to force Mint to retrieve transactions from my bank website for the past month or so? One of my Santander accounts is missing lots of transactions.

I have two Santander checking accounts. One of them appears to have all of the transactions for the past month, but the other is missing lots of the purchases I made, making it impossible to budget and accurately check on my spending. I wish I could force Mint to check for all the transactions on my bank account, as they are all easily visible on the account page, so Mint should have no trouble retrieving them from the last month or so. But it is missing a bunch. I can see in previous posts that others have had this issue, but no good responses. 

Has anyone gotten a solid answer on how to fix it (or if it will be fixed in the near future)? I don't want to spend the time manually adding all of the missing ones if they are going to pop up later and end up with a bunch of duplicate transactions.

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.
