The New York Times has an article about a financial planning site, Mint.com, that was recently acquired by Intuit, the maker of Quicken. What experiences do people have with Mint.com?
"Mint.com makes its money by helping identify savings opportunities for users. For example, Mint might suggest: ?You?ve got $20,000 in your Wells Fargo savings account earning 0.10 percent interest. You could make 1.9 percent at Ally Bank, and that?s worth $360 over the next year.? We find better interest rates on checking, savings and CDs; lower interest rates on your credit cards, or more rewards if you pay them off in full; investment and I.R.A. options based on your unique financial profile, and a new auto insurance savings engine that lets you know how much above or below the average for your ZIP code you?re paying for coverage. Every offer is unique to your financial situation, so two different users may see very different suggestions. If you sign up for a new account via Mint.com, we get paid a referral fee."
