Re: Checking Credit Cards Accounts Several Times Daily

Hey!  I used to do the same thing, now I just update the "my portfolio" service daily through bank of america.  It makes life so much easier. :smileyvery-happy:

 

I still log in periodically to make payments of course, and to check for any account changes!

Re: Checking Credit Cards Accounts Several Times Daily

DI, I check all of my accounts on a daily basis...except for Sundays.  I noticed that US Bank updates my accounts in the afternoon, so why do I waste my time checking them in the morning?  :smileytongue:

Re: Checking Credit Cards Accounts Several Times Daily

i use mint too, but it's not as useful as i thought it would be originally.  i prefer to just go to the sites to get detailed information.

 

i actually have many ocd traits...most of them are pretty stupid, i admit, but i can't help it!  just makes me feel better to do them.

I tried using programs like MInt. But they don't work too well.  Those programs have problems with the security questions and answers associated with the accounts.  I find it easy for me to just go directly to the source website.

yeah, that is definitely becoming a problem for me.  i don't use it everyday like i used to anymore.  sometimes i just do it to see if my balances has updated due to new statements.
