using reminders with multiple accounts

I have two checking accounts each with their own reminders.  Is there a way to determine which account a reminder is tied too when you open reminders?  Also, can you manually post a reminder early, like how a scheduled payment works with other applications?

Hi wkozy,

I'm assuming you're referring to Bill Reminders, is that correct? Is so, you can try renaming each of your checking accounts in Mint so something unique so when you get the reminder, it'll be more clear.

You can do this by logging into your Mint account, then click the Accounts link at the top of the page. Then scroll down until you see the checking account, then click the down arrow. You'll see a field called "name" that is editable, clicking hte orange "Done" button will save your changes.


Also, it looks like you can indeed adjust the due date. Login to Mint, scroll down until you see Upcoming Bills, then click the gear icon in the far right, then "change your reminders". Then click on the reminder you'd like to edit and once the pop up opens, you'll see a link on the right that says "repeats monthly on x date", click the link and then you'll see a calendar and have the ability to edit the date (though this links appears to disappear if you don't catch it quick -- I think this is because you have more flexibility when adjusting dates for added reminders, but for credit card and loan accounts, Mint wants to use the due date on the statement).

Hope this helps!

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.
