How do I change the category for a transaction?

For your budgets to be accurate, you may need to change the category of your transactions.

Wait until a pending transaction has gone through before changing its category. Changes to pending transactions aren't saved.

Existing categories provided by Mint can't be deleted.

From the Mint app:

  1. Open the Mint app and scroll down to Recent Transactions, select See all
  2. Select the transaction you’d like to change
  3. Select Category
  4. Find and select the new category or subcategory you’d like to use
  5. Your changes are automatically saved

From Mint.com:

  1. Sign in to Mint and select Transactions near the top of the page
  2. Choose the transaction you’d like to update and select its existing category
  3. Select the arrows next to the category name
  4. Find and select the new category you’d like to use
  5. Your changes are automatically saved

When you add a transaction subcategory, you get a clearer picture of your regular spending.

If you want Mint to use this category for all future transactions from this merchant, you can create a rule.
