Comments on: Yodlee’s take on the Mint acquisition http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2009/09/22/yodlees-take-on-the-mint-acquisition/ A slice of lime in the soda Sun, 26 Oct 2014 19:05:02 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: herewegoinvt http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2009/09/22/yodlees-take-on-the-mint-acquisition/comment-page-1/#comment-20580 Wed, 10 Nov 2010 16:35:01 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2009/09/22/yodlees-take-on-the-mint-acquisition/#comment-20580 Looks like Yodlee was right – over the past few months my Mint.com accounts have all had issues, some resolved, but the most important ones have not been. It seems Mint’s customer service is overwhelmed with issues as they are doing some initial responses to issues (very boilerplate) and then taking a week or more with any follow up. Most of the time their responses leave existing users with loads of transactions already on their servers out in the cold.

Mint, Yodlee, and Quicken and Money online are all aggregators — the goal is to get away from the bank level and grab all my finances in one place. I’m a happy Chase customer (and US Bank and Huntington and Vanguard and ETrade), but I’m not sure I really want any one of those institutions knowing about all of my holdings at the other institutions. And if I drop Chase, or whomever is doing my aggregation, does that mean I have to go through the hassle of exporting all my data and re-importing it at my next bank?

I’m a happy user of Yodlee’s online service at yodlee.com, but if one of my bank offered me the same service, it would actually be worth less to me than it is when offered on an independent platform.

He says that as if the all of the banks got their own online banking sites AFTER Mint came along. Lots of banks had their own online banking site years before I ever heard of Mint, *especially* the larger banks like Bank of America, Wachovia, etc.

I don’t know why he’d say that, as if to imply these banks started later and managed to grow faster than Mint, when everyone knows that’s not true.

If anything, Mint users will be able to connect to more Financial Institutions than ever before

Everyone I know that uses mint raves about the superior integration w/ the various financial institutions. If Intuit just moves mint onto their own backend, as they have said, then they’ll lose one of the primary mint selling points. Alternatively they may have tried to buy yodlee to rid themselves of competition and mint was the plan B purchase.

Their cash cow has gone away…

Intuit has been doing this for years and probably supports more banks so I would not count on any issues with data.
