Can't wait to get my Smart Cash card, then with my Amex cashback (also on Mint), I will finally be able to track all my card spending in one place easily.

I am apprehensive about keeping all my finances in one places, but I like to use Mint.com just for tracking spending by category each month. I don't have any banks linked up to it, just credit cards.

My MBNA gold and SC work. Citibank doesn't though!! nor QT.

I wish the mobile app allowed you to modify your settings instead of being just read-only.

How does the budget get filled up? I have a bunch of things setup, but my income or expenses aren't deducted from it? I suppose each transaction must be linked to a budget somehow?

had the same issue, apparently RBC is having some tech difficulties.
I managed to get RBC on mint US, so there is no question it works on mint CA

Go to RBC site, and give your account a nickname. Delete account from Mint, try to add again. Worked for me.

For ppl using TD visa card, do you have to give your TD bank easyweb psd in order to show the transaction of your credit card (so they will get banking information as well)?

If you have to give your EasyWeb password, here is a snippet of a response I got from TD when I asked them about mint.com:

As a TD Canada Trust Access Card Holder, you've agreed to not provide your confidential information to third parties. This would include divulging our password and Access Card number to Mint.com. So, this would include companies that try to aggregate your financial services under one roof.

We view the aggregation of services as a security issue and generally do not support it, so while you may be able to access your accounts initially, there will likely come a time when your information becomes blocked.


I love the idea of the service, but I would not want to be on the other side of a dispute with a banking institution regarding access to my account after receiving such clear directions.

Use at your own risk.

When I tried adding my CT Mastercard last week, it didn't come up in the search results even. They seem to have added it now, but when I enter my account info and click "Add it", it keeps giving the error message "Temporary issue connecting".

I agree. I'm not really into "budgeting" software, but I tried it out on the weekend and was extremely impressed. Took no time at all to get my accounts hooked up and the interface is awesome.

Only problem is that I only wanted to use it to assemble some data from 2010, but it only has 90 days of historical info when you start. Next year, I'll have enough data to do what I want.
