Do you guys use mint.

I have read the reviews on the app store they are amazing. I am wondering if anyone has actually used it here?

Sorry just won't allow some third party to connect to my bank and download information from it. Just won't happen. IMHO. And if you don't have internet connection you are SOL.

Just ask yourself how is it provided for free? Nobody works for free, there is something you are providing them they can sell and use, no matter what they say.

Check with your bank before using them. Some banks will cancel your coverage against fraud if you provide 3rd party access to your account.

I use it and have no qualms about security, it's own by intuit... Same guys that do quicken/turbotax so it's a reputable company... Not to say they can't be hacked(anyone can) but at the end of the day I'm not worried about it. And yes they most certainly do try to sell you stuff, mostly for me it's suggesting I switch to the sponsors low interest credit card... It's poorly targeted in my case as I don't carry balances... If they were on the ball in terms of targeting the promos they would push reward cards on me after seeing all of my cards are of this type...

+ 1 or more, it is a NO NO from a security aspect to let anyone into your bank account. Mint asks for you to hand them your bank password.

Use iBank instead, it works great.

I don't even list my banks talk to one another through my interface with them! I could have my BMO accounts reflected in my RBC statement page, but choose not.
