10 Websites Where You Can Manage Your Money Online For Free.

Besides your own bank which might also offer the service (mine does – Bank of America), there are plenty of other websites where you can monitor all your bank accounts – and sometimes even your frequent flier miles, reward point balances, and your spending habits – for free. If your bank doesn’t offer this kind of service, you might want to check out one of the following sites:

1. Mint – Mint connects to over 5,000 US banks and credit unions, credit card, brokerage, and mutual fund companies to keep your transactions and account balances automatically up-to-date. Mint even auto-balances your checkbook and auto-categorizes your transactions. Set it up once and you’re done.

2. Wesabe – Our easy-to-use, Web-based software gives members a better understanding of how they spend money. The Wesabe community shares tips and advice to help each other make better financial decisions. We believe pooling information on where we all spend can help you make better financial decisions and ultimately take control of your money to reach financial goals.

3. expensr – See how much of your money goes to Food or Gas. Then compare your spending with similar people so you know where to improve. Create budgets to stay on track and use our forecasting tools to avoid any financial surprises. It’s all free, easy-to-use, and takes only a couple of minutes a day.

4. Yodlee – The most comprehensive online banking solution on the market “• offers an unparalleled user experience, helping consumers gain control, insight, and convenience. (This software runs a majority of online banking offers)

5. Geezeo – Geezeo is a free website that makes it easy to track and manage your finances. Use Geezeo to track all your bank accounts, set and track financial goals, stay on a budget and collaborate with others about financial situations important to you.

6. Buxfer – Our goal is to create the best personal finance application on the web. Money is typically not the topic of discussion for a group of twenty-somethings wanting to have fun with their lives. But that’s only because today’s finance applications make it difficult and boring. That’s what we have set about to change! We want people to effortlessly understand their finances. And have fun while doing so.

7. Moneytrackin’ – A free online webapp that allows you to track all your expenses and income easily and without effort, thus allowing you to have a clear view of your financial situation. It intends to be a simple yet powerful online budget management tool.

8. My Spending Plan – Powerful online budgeting software and planning tools for all your needs! Save money, reduce debt, manage tasks and reach your financial goals faster. It’s safe, secure and no downloads are required!

9. Track Your Budget – You can set up cash, checking, savings, and credit card accounts and enter standard withdrawal, deposit, and transfer transactions for each account. You’ll have the ability to tag and jot down notes about your transactions for easy reference. There is also the ability to set up a monthly budget and when you enter transactions, you can immediately see how it affects your budget, making it much easier to stay on top of your money.

10. budgetEDGE – A free and anonymous place for you to create and manage your finances, using a forward-looking, paycheck-driven approach that shows you if (when) you will run out of money.

    I switched to Yodlee a few months ago after getting fed up with Quicken. While it took some time to get ALL of my accounts set up it has been an great tool. You can link accounts so both you and your husband/wife can see everything. It learns to categorize your transactions as you go, lets you set budgets and track your spending against them, and has some great reports that get you looking at your overall net worth. There is even a mobile client you can access from your phone. The customer service is even good (I know, on a free service)!

    Thanks Kelly, appreciate the input!

  3. I use ClearCheckBook.com

    It’s not just for checking, it works absolutely perfectly for everything I use it for (which is everything). Found it after I tried Mint on their opening day and found it extremely lacking for my needs (which, of course, was detailed in a long post titled “Mint Sucks” on which the CEO commented). I checked Mint again about a month ago, and it still came nowhere near sufficient for my purposes.

    Have any opinions/reviews on the above? I’m specifically interested in budgeting features. Wesabe doesn’t do that, Mint’s capability there is lacking as they have a lot of horrible horrible math in their weak budgeting interface (they double count parent/child categories).

  10. david says:

    Chris – I agree with you on Mint.com’s budgeting features. Maybe you can try out Geezeo, which came highly recommended from a friend who does a lot of budgeting. I don’t particularly budget, so it’s not a feature I normally look for. But check that one out, my friend seems to like it.

  11. Peter says:

    I’m a budgetEDGE user myself. It lets me set my payments on autopilot and concentrate on how much to save or pay on my credit cards. Pretty useful!

    At themoneycase.com, we have also taken time to look at other online budgeting software. We agree that mint.com is lacking and appears to want to sell you new products every time you pay a bill.

    Our software is simple and allows you a fair bit of flexibility tracking your own spending and is great for the beginner who is learning how to budget. For advanced budgeters you can also override the programmed recommended budget so that you can enter your own targets. You can put categories for savings, etc…

    We plan to add more features soon where users can access their banking information and bill payments, mobile & PDA device access and other applications to if they choose.

    Given that we are in the early stages of development we welcome new user feedback, in fact we are asking for it! So if anybody would like to try, stop by an sign up.

    It is a free online software that is meant to be simple, easy but powerful enough to replace dated software such as quicken for everyday used by the average person for their daily finance.

    thanks for a great post, David, and sparking some great conversation. I can’t wait to go back to our programmers and start improving our site!

    Has anyone used Rudder? I stumbled over it today, and the What’s Left Calculator feature looks intriguing, but I’m not sure exactly how it works.

    Thanks,

    With shorting the market lately I don’t have to budget anymore.

    I’m kind of joking….just kind of!

    Great post!

  20. i’ve tried out a few of these and after 6+ months of experimentation i’ve decided that mint.com is the best by far.

  21. Susan says:

    I’ve used Mint.com and it didn’t work with my bank USAA. It is listed, but after a week it stopped updating the transactions.

    I’ve also used MySpendingPlan and was not impressed.

    I’m currently using Quicken’s free online software. It downloads transactions automatically from my accounts (hasn’t stopped) and it also allows me to manually add transactions (mint.com doesn’t.)

    I’m curious to know why Kelly, or anyone else didn’t like Quicken.

  22. Seth says:

    I’ve used Wesabe for a while now and like it. I wasn’t really aware of any of the others. I’m going to have to start comparing them!

  23. steve says:

  25. Craig Hilles says:

    New website to manage your money online. I want new users to help me customize it. I eat my own dogfood: I use this to manage my own finances. Thanks!

  26. Hareiana says:

    Not sure how many like to budget online anonymously without giving out access to bank accounts and how many heard about this website but I used Out Of The Dark (OOTD) Budgeting for over a year now and it really changed my life financially. It has budgeting and expense tracking on one page side by side which I love, it has cash put-aside and personal stock management built in, and it has something called Credit Card Debt Terminator which I have not seen anywhere else which is great if one wants to get out of any credit card debt situation, it is completely anonymous to use, does not require me to give out access to any of my bank accounts and it’s unconditionally free. Find it at: myootd.org

  27. Lana says:

    I had been using mint.com for almost 3 years and, for most of that time, I didn’t have any problems with them. In fact, I liked them very much until, about a few months ago, after it got purchased by Intuit, mint.com started to suck! All of a sudden, my previous data got deleted (except for the most recent 6-month history)which was odd and random. When I contacted customer support, I didn’t hear anything back. I ended up deleting my account because it just freaked me out. Anyway, I’m now looking for something similar to what mint.com used to be so I can manage my money without concerns. I don’t mind paying a small fee for a good service. Any ideas?
