Hottie Alert

by astanhaus

My checking account was overheating…and Mint told me to cool it with the spending thanks to an email alert. Low balance is just one of MANY alerts you can set with Mint.

(click on the bold-faced vocab words:))

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.

Lesson learned.
