For the last couple of years, I've been using Mint to manage my bank account and credit cards. It offers a quick and easy way for me to know how much money I (don't) have at any given moment, as well as constantly monitor my credit cards. For me, simple is good - I don't bother with investments of any kind, so I have no use for a service that offers that sort of management. For those who do, though, the official Personal Capital app just hit the Play Store.

In a nutshell, Personal Capital makes it easy to keep an eye on all your finances - everything from checking accounts and credit cards to any investments you may have. Without having actually used the service, I will say it looks to be a very powerful and intuitive tool for finance management.


And, for today only, the company is offering a pretty enticing deal for at least trying the service: if you sign up and add your accounts, they'll send you a $20 Amazon gift card. So, if nothing else, you can at least score something from Amazon just for giving it a shot. Hit the link below to sign up, then grab the app.

        Just got my confirmation e-mail stating that within 5 days I will get my $20 Amazon Gift Card... that was easy

      Even more importantly, you can save without having to "manage" investments. Speak with your insurance agent or banker about programs that they offer!

  • Mike Kilar

    Free Amazon gift card? Okay! Signed up.

    Anyone know when they get the gift card?

  • Keith Freeman

    How do you sign up for the giftcard?

  • woj_tek

    "This item cannot be installed in your device's country."

        After you sign up through their website you have to add an account. I added my banking account. Then contact them...

  • Scott

    How do you know if you're receiving the gift card? I already added 2 accounts.

    • Cherokee4Life

      it took 2 hours to get the confirmation e-mail but they will send it.

      • Scott

        Thanks. I just received my confirmation email about 5 minutes ago. Almost 2 hours on the dot.

    FYI Mint also handles investments, the way this article is written doesn't sound like it does.

    Mint can track stocks as well. The whole one share of stock I've ever owned is in my Mint account and I can track it there.

  • popcicle

    After a couple hours i contacted them about not receiving a amazon gift card and they sent an email a few minutes later confirming i would get it. if you haven't received a gift card just email them.
