Free Financial Software: How to Get It
Who says financial tricks aren't free?
There's no such thing as a free lunch, but there is such a thing as free financial software. Mint.com is how you get it. From your home computer to a mobile device, Mint is there to help you make sense and keep track of your budget and ultimately save money. In fact, saving money is what we're all about.
With your free account (and it really is free), you'll get all of these features and more: you'll also get peace of mind.
Expense Tracking and Management
Are expenses taking a toll on your budget? Let Mint.com's free expense tracking and management features help you sort them out and take control.
On one screen, even on a mobile device, you'll see how your money is spent. This "whole picture" method gives you the broad scope, which puts spending into perspective. Small purchases here and there won't have the chance to stack up unnoticed, and you can quickly see how small changes can lead to major savings and even debt-free living in the long run.

Money Saving Advice
Mint's money-saving tips and advice is like having a financial adviser in your pocket. When you make a financial decision such as a large purchase, Mint can step in and show you ways to save money and make better choices.
Mint does sometimes get a referral fee for recommending a product or service, but that's not how advice is packaged. Your best interest, which is saving the most money, always comes first.
Mint.com makes budgets less of a chore. You can enter all of your accounts quickly, importing the information without an endless array of steps to get it done.
Once accounts are in place, you decide how your budget should work. Mint offers timely and appropriate advice, but you are ultimately in control of which money goes where.
Everything you need is all in one place, including a finance calculator. You won't have to worry about adding income or subtracting expenses three or four times to be sure it's right, and the calculator produces visual aids such as graphs and charts to reveal the whole picture.
Each step of the way, Mint's software makes sure everything is accurate and easy to understand, whether you're using a computer at home or a mobile device on the road.
Never worry about paying a bill late again. Free alerts remind you when bills are due, and they don't stop there. You can set text alerts, emails, or both to remind you of nearly anything that relates to your budget.
If the due date passes on a bill, an alert can remind you about late fees. When interest rates drop, you can get a reminder that helps you save money. For almost anything you want to know or be reminded of, Mint has an alert available.
Free is good, especially when there's a significant return on investment. Of all the ways you could spend time and money to create and manage household finances, why not choose the one that gets it right and doesn't cost a penny?
