Looks like today’sÂ news themeÂ is “Finance Friday”.
Popular online personal finance service Mint.com has been available to our US neighbours for over a year now. Today Mint.com now officially supports Canada (it was out in beta a couple months ago) and is a huge boost for those looking to aggregate their financial accounts into one place. Oh, and the Mint.com iPhone app is something you’re going to want to use with this.
More from Business Wire:
Since being acquired by Intuit, Mint.com has more than doubled its user base to 4.5 million users, and doubled the number of financial institutions it connects to, now 16,000.
â€œFrom the very beginning, when Mint.com was more a concept than a product, I envisioned it as a global offering helping millions of people worldwide better manage their money,â€ said Aaron Patzer, vice president and general manager of Intuit Personal Finance and founder of Mint.com. â€œJoining Intuit last year made that vision a reality, and weâ€™ve spent much of the last few months doing in-market testing and applying Intuitâ€™s Customer Driven Innovation philosophy to learn more about our new and potential customers. Our Canadian launch is just the beginning of Mint.comâ€™s global expansion.â€
Helping Canadians Do More With Their Money
Canadians can access Mint at mint.com/Canada. Mint connects securely to Canadian banking financial institutions in addition to U.S. banks and credit unions. Mint automatically aggregates usersâ€™ accounts and transaction information, categorizes spending, delivers detailed views of their financial life, and saves them money by providing money-saving and moneyâ€“making suggestions specific to Canada. The free Mint.com mobile applications for iPhone and Android mobile phones are available on the iTunes Canada app store and Android Market.
This is great news for Canadians. For people who have various bank accounts and different sites to visit for each credit card, Mint.com/Canada will be a blessing. On top of that, the Mint.com iPhone app will make it even easier to keep track of your finances.
Are you going to try out Mint.com? Looks like a pretty awesome service.
