Mint

I discovered an awesome new website yesterday.

MINT

It’s a cool site where you can add all of your checking and savings accounts, credit cards, student loans, car loans, investments and property info as well as track your spending and budget all in ONE place. It’s sweet!! I just linked up all my accounts and there they all are… right on one page.

The interface is pretty clean and easy to use- check it out below(don’t mind all the orange lines where my account totals would be). 🙂 It imports all your transaction data and gives you cool charts to track spending and allows you to create custom budgets. You can set up notifications to let you know when payments clear, when you go over budget, etc.

My only gripe is that I can’t link up any of my aussie accounts. So, in all reality- this site does me little good since all my purchases and bills are paid here; however, since it is such a cool site, I thought I’d write about it for any people in the US who may be looking for some cool (and free) financial/budgeting software.

 

 

Also, I found this other site- THRIVE. It is a very similar concept and actually looks a bit cooler to me- but once I discovered that I couldn’t link my Aussie accounts there either, I didn’t even bother joining.

Hopefully one day they will add the ability to link to international banks and then I will be very, very happy!

    Hey Elsja, how can we support your banks if you don’t join and tell us that we don’t support them? *smiles* Shoot us an e-mail at support@justthrive.com and we’ll do what we can to get them into the system; we work hard to get access to everyone and that’s a commitment we take seriously.

    I was so excited when I found out about Mint.com and then so pissed off when I realized I couldn’t hook up my Aussie accounts. I knew it was too good to be true – it’d be a handy tool to be able to track both accounts, though.

      Hey Lindsay- check out the other one I mentioned… http://www.justthrive.com. I was able to link my US accounts AND aussie ones! I was really happy when I found that out- however I haven’t blogged about it yet! It’s not as intuitive and cool as mint at the moment, but I was told by some of their great support teams that they have new features and functionality in the works 🙂
