Mint’s credit card infographic

I first wrote about Mint in 2008, after having used it for six months and being pleased with the results. If you’re unfamiliar with Mint, it hooks to your financial accounts and automatically analyzes your spending and saving and investing habits to provide you with trends and charts as well as suggestions for improving your financial health.

I was disappointed when it was acquired by Intuit and the innovation subsequently slowed to a crawl. I’ve been waiting for months to get their tech support to correctly categorize an auto loan as a loan instead of a credit card, and finally received a response that’s not much more than “we’re working on it.”

My love-hate relationship with Mint aside, they released a pretty impressive infographic about credit cards last month. If you’ve ever wondered what the numbers on a credit card mean, or if you foolishly thought it was a 16-digit random number made just for you, you should roll on over and check it out on the Mint blog.
