To celebrate and recognize how our Minters are reaching their financial milestones, we reached out to everyday Mint users like you to share their stories. Whether it’s meeting your savings goals or paying off your credit card debt, every win counts!
We connected with Zaiba, a financial analyst from Canada, to learn more about her experience with Mint and how it has helped her and her husband meet their financial goals. Read on to learn more about their #Empowermint story.
I’ve always been very involved in my finances and budgeting and studied banking and finance in school. Budgeting is extremely important to me as it helps me make smarter financial decisions and understand where to cut my expenses while also helping me get the most out of my savings.
I was looking for a good budgeting app for a while when I came across Mint in an article. I first used Mint six months ago (wish I found it sooner!) To keep track of my finances and create a budget. The constant use of the app helps my husband and I meet our budget, pay our monthly bills on time and still be able to save so we can invest to earn a higher income.
Mint has helped my husband and I in many ways, the main one being saving up for a quicker repayment of our mortgage loan. When my husband and I bought our first house at the beginning of the year, we wanted to keep an eye on all our cash inflows and outflows and get a holistic picture of our finances. Mint has been an incredible tool that has helped us better understand our finances and make informed decisions. In addition, Mint has also helped us fund the purchase of our new luxury car and save more for current and future investments. We use Mint every day and use all of the in-app features. I particularly like the “Spending Less Challenge” because it motivates me to stay within my spending limits and limit unnecessary and impulsive purchases.
My favorite part about the Mint app is that it links all of my accounts in one place, which gives me a clear picture of my overall financial condition. This helps me determine my financial goals and track my expenses as I know which areas to focus on! Using Mint has also helped me become more disciplined when it comes to making payments on time and saving more to meet my goals.
Whatever your financial goal, Mint is a GREAT tool that not only helps you quantify your expenses, debts and income, but also helps you understand and prioritize your financial needs and wants.
