Apple Card has reintroduced integration with the Mint budgeting app. The app previously allowed integration with the popular credit card but encountered severe issues and was pulled in 2022.
Apple Card Enables Mint Integration
When first introduced, the Apple Card was trumpeted as the ultimate symbol of financial and technological integration – uniting Apple users and their wallets everywhere. Several financial services subsequently created mobile integrations with the Apple Card platform – with one of those being Mint.
Mint is a financial service that brings together various financial information, including account balances, spending, budgets, and even the user’s credit score. Owned by Intuit – the maker of TurboTax, QuickBooks, and Credit Karma – Mint provides a clear picture of the user’s financial health. It shows spending habits, investments, free credit scores, and more.
Mint Integration Returns
Unfortunately, the initial integration with Apple Card was deeply flawed, resulting in the integration being removed shortly after it arrived in 2020. According to Apple news site 9to5Mac, the initial launch offered a limited – but troubled service. This was part of a process involving other Intuit properties – including Quicken and QuickBooks integrations.
Now, 9to5Mac is reporting that Mint integration has returned to the Apple Card. Here is how to relink an existing Mint account to the Apple Card:
- Open the Mint app and connect your account to link your Apple Card
- Log in with your Apple ID and password
- You will need to re-grant access every 90 days
