You can track your car (or boat, motorcycle, bicycle, snowmobile, etc.) as an asset in Mint by adding it as "other property". Simplly follow the steps below:
- Login to Mint and click the Accounts link at the top of the page and then click the "Other" button - Then, click the orange "+ Add other property" button at the top of the page - Next, click the radial button for Vehicle and choose the appropriate selection from the drop down and click Next - If you choose the year, make, model, and trim and click "show me", Mint will sync with Kelley Blue Book to pull in the vehicle's value (and automatically update it every 7-10 days), or you can click the link to add the value manually - When you're done, click "Add it" and then "Close"
Please note that if your car is a newer model (2015 and some 2014 models) KBB may not yet have a value for the vehicle and you may have to manually track the value until it's available.
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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
