Apple Card Customers Now Able to Connect Account to Mint

When the Apple Card launched, one of the selling points was that cardholders would automatically unlock spending insights and other tools within Apple’s Wallet app. Nevertheless, many customers still wanted to view their Apple Card balances in the context of their other accounts using aggregators, such as Mint. Unfortunately, this was a feature not offered by Apple and, while the company later introduced a data export option, this solution still didn’t quite fit the bill. Now, at long last, Mint has announced a new integration for Apple Card, allowing users to sync their accounts to the popular app.

In order to add an Apple Card account to Mint, users can tap the + button in the upper right corner of the app and choose “Account.” Then, they can select the newly-added Apple Card option and log in with their Apple ID. Note that doing so may require two-factor authentication, with a push alert being sent to a customer’s various Apple devices. Once added, users will be able to view their Apple Card balance in Mint along with all of their Apple Card transactions. In turn, these purchases will also appear in Mint’s spending insights, budgets, etc. broken down by category.

For those who may have found the previous lack of Mint integration to be a deal-breaker in regards to the Apple Card, they may find that the offering has evolved a bit since they last took a look. While the Apple Card continues to earn 2% Daily Cash back on all purchases made using Apple Pay and 1% back on all other purchases, the list of 3% Daily Cash back categories has continued to expand in recent years.

Currently, in addition to earning 3% Daily Cash on Apple purchases, customers also earn this rate when they use their Apple Card with Apple Pay at Walgreen/Duane Reade, Exxon/Mobil, Uber/Uber Eats, Panera, Nike, and T-Mobile. In fact, while the T-Mobile perk was previously limited to in-store purchases, Apple quietly updated that policy and now allows T-Mobile customers to earn 3% Daily Cash when they pay their monthly bill via Apple Pay.

As for Mint, this long-awaited integration comes as the service has been looking to inject new life into its app. Last year, Mint began rolling out an updated look for the application along with new features. Thus, while this might not seem like a big development in and of itself, it does seemingly demonstrate Intuit’s renewed interest in the Mint platform. In other words, this news is not only good news for fans of the Apple Card but also for fans of Mint.
