Once you click continue, the next screen will allow you to do a one-time account setup, which means all you have to do is enter your information one time and your accounts will update on their own. Consider adding all of your financial accounts--checking, savings, credit, and investments for the best experience. The more information Mint.com has about your finances, the better it can track your habits and provide you with offers to help you. Follow the on screen instructions to add your accounts, choosing your account types from the top of the window, entering your account login information and allowing the website to validate it.
