How do I create a transaction rule that will categorize all future transactions that contain a specific word - even if there's a second different word?

I created a new category called "Rideshare" under "Auto/Transport" for my Uber/Lyft rides - Mint normally categorized them as "rental car/taxi"  under "Travel" - My problem now is that Uber tends to add different endings or combinations to its description (such as "uber uber b" or "uber kbz") and Mint doesn't recognize this new Uber in my re-categorize transaction rules.  So, my question/issue is if I can set something up so that all future transactions that include "Uber" are categorized as "Rideshare"


Hello kegrergory,

Thank you for your question. You can set up a rule as you have, but you cannot set up a rule for a partial name, I am sorry.

Thank you,
Mint Maggie

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.
