What is Mint?
Mint is a free, safe, and simple personal finance and budgeting tool offered by Intuit. Mint is most prominently known for its app, but also has a web-based version of the tool. Mint allows members to aggregate their banking and investment accounts in to one place and track spending, account inflows and outflows, and set spending budgets.
