Austin Wegner, a junior marketing major, explained his interactions with Mint and how much Mint has improved his spending habits and budgeting. Mint is free from the App Store and powered by Intuit — the company behind TurboTax — which allows users to retrieve their current credit score 24/7, for free.
“Mint was something that I decided to download on a whim as a way to maybe help save me money, but really as a way to say I was actually doing something not really expecting much out of it. However, it ended up changing my mind and even saving me money,” Wegner said. Mint has multiple perks that allows students to track their spending by connecting the app to their bank accounts and credit cards. It also allows users to set specific goals and provide steps to help them reach that specific goal.
