See a comprehensive Mint.com review.
I do a lot of networking with other bloggers – one of the issues that has come up over the past year has been non-payment for services from Mint.com. I haven’t done any business with them myself, but I’ve had to listen to endless complaining from my various blogger friends – both Canadian and American, about how they sell links to Mint.com and they don’t get paid for them.
Finally this week – Debt Kid wrote a story about the issue and called out Mint.com for non-payment in a post called “Mint.com can’t seem to pay it’s bills“.
Given that Mint.com is a money-management website, it seems like an odd way to do business. They were acquired recently by Intuit, which is a first-class organization, so hopefully Intuit can straighten things around.
