    I am not signed up with mint, but is it in their contract for them to be able to view your account transactions and balances? I thought the idea was just that it aggregated everything for you in one spot. I am really not sure that I want some computer scanning my purchases and analyzing it to send me new offers or “warnings” Yes in this case it probably is a good thing to be notified but still scares me. I am not one of those super paranoid people either, just not giving everyone access either.
