How Mint Works
Mint categorizes and updates the information on its website. It begins with the customer’s personal bank account, credit card account, retirement account and much more. Mint gives you a true picture of your balances and enables you to know how you are actually faring in terms of your finances.
To use an Intuit product, you have to create an online account. You’ll be needing your user ID and password to create this account. Once you are able to successfully create and access your account, you stand eligible to use all the powerful products that Mint offers even including QuickBooks, Mint, and TurboTax. This means that whenever you update your ID, the information is automatically disseminated to all Intuit products.
