Mint.com is Shutting Down on Dec. 31, 2023
Hosted by: Anna Sergunina, CFP®
It’s always disappointing when a popular and useful service like Mint decides to shut down. Many loyal users have come to rely on Mint for their budgeting and financial management needs. This situation serves as a reminder of the potential pitfalls of relying on free services.
While free services can be appealing, they often come with a degree of uncertainty. Companies may change their business models, discontinue services, or make changes that impact users. In this case, the discontinuation of Mint serves as a reminder that having a backup plan or considering paid alternatives might be a wise choice for individuals seeking stability and reliability in their financial management tools.
Today, we’re fortunate to have Anna Sergunina with us, who will share alternative options for budgeting systems and guide you through the process of transitioning your financial data. So, let’s turn this disappointment into an opportunity to explore new and possibly even more effective solutions for managing your finances.
Some of the topics we’ll discuss:
-How to initiate transition
-What Credit Karma offers/Mint is transitioning to Credit Karma
-How to gather your data and save it
-Discussion of alternative budgeting tools
