Mint Data Exporter Chrome Extension (Beta)

Getting your data out of Mint can be a bit of a pain. You can use Monarch's Mint Data Exporter extension to automate moving your Mint data to Monarch.

You can download it here.

Monarch has made this open-sourced. You can see our code here.

What is the Mint Data Exporter Extension?

This is a Chrome extension that lets you export all of your data from Mint, since Intuit has announced that Mint “will go away”. You could use this if you want to move to another an alternative, like Monarch Money, or if you simply want to preserve your data history.

Why should I use this tool? 

You can export things manually, but as users have moved from Mint to Monarch, there have been reports of quirks with Mint’s exports. This tool helps address some of these quirks:

  • Export more than 10,000 transactions. By default, when exporting transactions, Mint will only export the first 10,000 transactions (this isn’t always clear, you’ll just end up with missing transactions in your export and may not notice). You could filter your transactions and do several exports, but that’s tedious. This tool will issue as many requests as possible, and then merge the results into one final file that should have all your transactions (not just 10,000).

  • Export all individual account balances. When exporting historical account balances from Mint, you can only export one account at a time. This tool will loop through all the accounts you select, and export each one, saving you the manual work of doing that repetitively for each account.

  • Export daily balances for your accounts. When exporting historical account balances, Mint will only export the monthly balance (unless you filter to within a given month). This tool will loop through and export daily balances.

Can I use this with Monarch?

Yes! Check our guide on moving data from Mint to Monarch.

Can I use this without Monarch?

Absolutely! This tool simply exports all your data and saves them locally. It doesn’t send anything to Monarch Money and it doesn’t require you to have a Monarch Money account. You could later import those files to Monarch Money or to any other tool, but you don’t have to. We'd recommend downloading your data before Mint goes away even if you don't know what tool you will use next.

Is this secure?

Your data is not sent anywhere. It will re-use an API key from a local, logged in session to mint.intuit.com. It won’t store anything remotely or send data anywhere else. All data downloaded will be stored locally for you so you can decide what you do with it.

Can I import my balance history?

You can import all your Mint account balance history at once. If you use our Mint import flow you'll see an option for account balances.

Can I import split transactions?

Our importing process, including the Chrome extension, will not automatically catch and label split transactions as splits. If you have split transactions in another budgeting app and want to have them appear as splits in Monarch, you will have to adjust this manually by creating a transaction of the original amount and then splitting it in Monarch.
