Why I chose low balance alerts… I had a traumatic experience once. And once was enough.
I had to face the facts when my debit card was rejected on a tampon run.
There are SO many more interesting things to do than to review my checking account balance. So I let Mint do it!
Mint also alerts me of any suspect account activity. But I review my charges on the reg.
