App of the Week: Mint
What is it?
Mint is an app that puts all your finances into one place. Manage your checking, savings, investment, retirement, loans or credit all from inside the app. Mint allows you to set budgets and goals so that you can keep on top of your finances while saving as well.
Why we like it
The app is super simple to set up, taking about 5 minutes to get started. I like how you can get the entire picture rather than having to view all your bills and banking on separate sites or apps. It not only saves a lot of time but the app tracks your progress and will send you a weekly report on how you’re doing. My favorite feature is the bill reminders via SMS, which are great for when I’m on the go. I also like the ‘credit available’ function which emails or texts me when my credit available dips below my specified threshold.
Get it if…
You find yourself wasting time managing your finances in multiple places. You want a consolidated way to manage your money, budget and pay bills.
