Mint won't populate weekend and holiday transactions
This has been an ongoing issue with Mint and it would be nice if this could be a feature or update to the software, let me elaborate.
If I do any shopping on Saturday or Sunday the transactions do not show up in the transactions tab for the account, even if they have already cleared with my bank. If I do any shopping and the "normal" post date is on a bank holiday, my bank will list the cleared transactions with a future date, but Mint won't show any transactions ( unless I've entered them manually, ) for dates in the future. Allow me to give an example.
I did some shopping on Sunday - which I have come to expect won't show up till Monday, as mentioned above - but on Monday when logging into my Mint account the transactions don't show up because it's a bank holiday. The bank, however, has already cleared these transactions ( i.e. they are not "pending" ) but due to the holiday, they are posted for tomorrow, and since they are already "cleared" the moneys are not available.
It seems silly that in this day and age your online-only software would care that it's Sunday. Twenty years ago, when one had to actually talk to a person at a bank to figure out one's balance this would have made sense. Today, however, no one including the bank cares that it's holiday or a weekend. Transactions happen in real time. To intentionally handicap your software seems - well - silly.
I would greatly appreciate if this functionality could be fixed in the near future. As it stands though it forces me to use other software to ensure my accounts are accurate.
