Love this entire program so far! It's already keeping us in check and now that every dollar is accounted for, the old battleaxe can't spend willy nilly without me knowing about it!

When I emailed Mint, I got form responses back. One time, I did get a response from someone who obviously did not speak English as a first language. Meanwhile, when I took a YNAB class, it was hosted by someone in the Midwest. When I emailed about the Steam sale, having recently paid full price for it, they went above and beyond to make me satisfied.
Now that you've paid for it though, you may want to give it more of a chance, keeping in mind the point of this software. It "spends" your money as soon as you budget it to a category. How would the software know which categories to assign your transactions to? YNAB is far more configurable--as such, it requires a bit more user interaction.

|ongos2000||Is anyone still able to get this for the promo price? Do they have a promo like this often? Looks like I just missed it!|

|bigmi||Ok I just paid $20 and got this software...like someone mentioned, this is just a fancy excel sheet. Nothing is automated, every time you do a transaction you have to manually updated it into the program for it to reflect on your balance. I thought it was linked to your bank and cc accounts or something so that every time you make a transaction it will automatically reflect on your "budget" balance. Mint is still better I think after comparing both, and it's free.|

I think putting (in your example) the $1,000 as it's own non-budget account is a good idea. But then, subtract $1,000 from the starting balance of the "real" account. This might mess up the reconciliation features of the software, though, so maybe it's better to keep that $1,000 as a budget line item in your "real" account.
I did shoot their support an email asking them about this. Maybe they have different methodology and I just need to hear them out.
Now, one might want to do this if you carry a balance. Mint is good at automatically seeing those transfers happen. For those that don't carry balances, it's unnecessary.
Mint's searching features and historical data are very nice, though. It'll take some time before YNAB has the same historical information as my Mint does.
