My sentiments exactly. This is why I cancelled my Mint account. They had so much going well for them I just can’t trust that the same level of innovation will be there after the sale to Intuit.
But here’s what happened: Intuit, last decade’s leader in personal finance, just became the next decade’s leader in personal finance. Mint had their number, but they sold it for $170 million. A big payday for sure, and if that was their two-year goal then they nailed it, but I can’t believe that was the point behind Mint. It had too much potential.
