Mintuit: It’s Official

By  |  Monday, September 14, 2009 at 9:43 am

MintuitThe TechCrunch story from last night was solid: The first major news at the TechCrunch50 conference this morning was that Intuit is indeed buying personal-finance service Mint for $170 million. Mint founder Aaron Patzer appeared onstage to confirm the acquisition. He also said that the Mint team will be responsible not only for Mint but for the existing Quicken Online service…and the Quicken desktop software. Which might help assuage the fears of Mint fans who are worrying that Intuit will ruin it.

It’ll be fascinating to see how Quicken, Quicken Online, and Mint relate to each other once all this is sorted out…
