Tiller vs Mint

Mint was a gateway to personal finance for millions. But now it’s time to graduate to Tiller, a more flexible, powerful, and private tool – one that will never leave you stranded.

β€œHaving all my data in a highly flexible system I control is much more to my liking than Mint.” 

Tom Brown, Google Review β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… Dec 24, 2023

“Tiller is the most robust financial budgeting and planning tool for families. Highly customizable. I spent months trying to find something to meet my needs. I’m very happy I found Tiller.”

“Moved to Tiller due to Mint going away. I love the spreadsheet-based solution. Plenty of templates are readily available. Wish I had done this much sooner.”

Richard Taylor, Google Review, β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… Jan 8, 2024

“I’ve been using Tiller for several months (after Mint and Simplfi) and Tiller is by far the best experience for managing transactions. You can use their additional features like AutoCat and Spending Trends, or can nerd out with your own scripts, charts, summary sheets, etc.”

Rich Feit, β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… Google Review, Jan 5, 2024


Like Mint, Tiller automatically brings all your finances together in one place.

But instead of tracking your financial life in an app that can go away, Tiller stores everything in your personal Google or Excel spreadsheets, under your exclusive ownership and control.

Manage Your Money, Your Way

Before Mint’s shutdown, the reason people switched to Tiller was frustration with Mint’s inflexibility. But with Tiller, you can customize almost everything, from all your categories and auto-categorization rules to your budgets, reports, and even fonts and colors.

“When Mint went to Credit Karma I decided to look for a new program. I wish I had switched to Tiller much sooner. I have my own Excel budget I incorporated into Mint for the last 7 years, customized to my needs. I was able to port it to Tiller in about 2 hours and have incorporated over 10,000 transaction seamlessly.”

“I used Mint but it had too many limitations. I switched to Tiller and it has been great! One of the best features is the flexibility and budgets. Support is great and everything I need works in Excel.”

“Mint refugee, and man do I wish I had known about Tiller sooner. I now have so much control and can change the way things work to fit my specific financial situation perfectly.”
