Mint makes categorizing expenses trouble free. Select from hundreds of expense categories or create your own and Mint will file your transactions in the proper category.
Mint makes understanding your expenses easy with straight-forward language describing purchases instead of the jibber-jabber you find on bank statements. It also smartly separates any ATM withdrawal fees from the amount withdrawn so you can keep track of just how much you’ve spent in bank fees.
You can set up Mint to notify you of upcoming payments to prevent late fees and its straightforward expense timeline shows you what bills are due soon so you can plan accordingly. Mint gives you lots of ways to identify and categorize your expenses, but it doesn’t offer a receipt feature.
Expensify’s expense and receipt features are much more powerful than Mint’s, and that’s probably because it caters to the business professional. Like Mint, it lets you import your bank and credit card transactions and allows you to organize expenses into categories. But Expensify also gives you the chance to add tags and comments to your expenses and lets you capture mileage, time and any other billable expense.
Use Expensify correctly, and you might not ever have to keep track of that pesky little paper receipt again. That’s because Expensify offers you the convenience of importing receipts directly from apps like Evernote and can capture any web page as a receipt.
