I signed up for it today and put all the accounts I could on it. It doesn't tell me anything I don't already know. Online banking is a godsend when it comes to budgeting, but Mint is all GUI and no bite.

I tried it and didn't care for it. Too many emails in my inbox about my money and the categories many of my purchases fell into didn't make any sense at all, so I had to re-categorize half of my purchases. Plus, I just really don't like the idea that a website has all of my financial info. I'll continue to use Quicken. It's a nice idea to have everything done for you so all you have to do is log in and see where your money is going, but I when I use Quicken I keep better track of how much money I have, what my balances are, and I can run reports to see where the money is going. And no annoying emails telling me I'm going over a budget I didn't create!

I use Quicken, and it works for me. The only thing I don't really like is that there are almost too many features for me. The upfront cost of the software was worth it for me to keep on top of my finances!!

I would love to - in fact, I think I'm going to check it out right now. Despite great examples from my parents, I've never been able to manage money that well. And I'm about to graduate college, so I'll need to learn to do that soon!
