Why won't my cash transactions deduct from my last ATM withdrawal? I sent an inquiry about this via Mint's web contact form last week and have received no reply.

I enter cash transactions and check the box to automatically deduct from my last ATM withdrawal. I categorize ATM withdrawals as "Cash & ATM" but they keep inexplicably getting recategorized as "Transfer for Cash Spending."

Answer

Hello mark.godfrey,

I apologize in the delay for response from Contact Mint, they can be deluded with questions and work hard to answer all Mint user needs. Let me see if I can help you on this!

The way ATM withdrawls work is that when you check 'deduct from my last ATM withdrawl', Mint automatically splits that transaction into one with 'transfer for cash spending' so that it is not duplicated. I am attaching a screenshot of this process so you can better view how it works. Please let me know if you have any further questions,

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.
