So, we were all at the second* annual Mint Holiday Party when we got the word that PCWorld magazine was going to name us one of the Top 25 Most Innovative Products of the Year. Made us pretty merry and bright, I tell you. Thank you, PC World!
We’re incredibly honored to be receiving this award in the company of both huge players like Toshiba and Panasonic, and three other start-ups. Read the full PCWorld Award Announcement. We’re looking forward to the party/award ceremony in Vegas next month.
One comment, though: the article seems to imply that you have to give your bank account numbers or credit card numbers to Mint to use our financial planning software. Not true. In fact, we don’t even have the functionality to capture that information. You can get the straight story on How Mint Keeps you Safe on our website.
Our thanks to all of you who are actively using Mint.com as a microsoft money alternative. and as a loyal blog subscriber, we wanted you to be the first to know that we’ll be introducing some fresh features next month that we’re really excited about sharing with you. Looking forward to hearing from you all on those.
*Okay, so there were only 3 of us at last year’s party. And, yes, we drafted on another, larger party for a group of start ups. But we are officially declaring it our first annual party.
