I’m a member of mint.com and it is such a great website. I have my bank & credit card accounts linked so I can view all transactions I’ve made. Not to mention, their sections on trends, investing and goals are excellent. The bill reminder is a great feature as well. The more websites that can help people get track of their spending, maintain good credit & reduce credit card debt is a very good thing for the american consumer.

One thing i hope gets added to the bill reminder feature is a mark paid feature. I like the reminders but if i’ve already paid a bill early i don’t want the reminder. Also a manual mark paid option would be nice so i can mark a bill as paid when i make or submit the payment and not have to wait for the bill payment to post to my account(s).
