Mint.com…Cool and Refreshing

I am excited about the potential for Mint.com . I think young people will be all over this. Eddie just emailed me and likes it. I have young Meghann at Lindzon HQ setting up her personal finances on the site tomorrow and she will hopefully give us some young lady insight.

Personally, I just wont give all my passwords and info on my personal banking stuff over just yet. Too freaked out for that and I am an open book.

I also long ago quit the Quicken addiction, but I am itching to dive back in these days.

Here is a good review from Venture Beat . I am happy for long time blogroll and hip marketing dude Noah Kagan who is doing his thing for the Minters .

    Mint is amazing. Got lucky to do the beta testing last couple of weeks and I can’t get enough. Said goodbye to Wesabe and checking all my individual financial websites. Incredible.

    The site sounds really impressive but I’m with you about “giving up” my financial passwords & info.

    You know what? I just read all their security stuff and it is making me rethink my stance a bit. I’m also sooo sick of Quicken that I may actually give Mint a try — especially since I just lost a few week’s worth of Quicken data with my hard drive crash, this may be the time for me to make a switch. Hmm..

    I just found this after reading about the Tech Crunch 40 event and Love it. I think you are right on about young people liking this idea.

    yo howard, you told me you don’t get wesabe and then you post that you like mint

    they do the exact same thing

    i think you are buying into the techcrunch hype machine
