Mint and Rocket Mortgage Reveal New Technology to Foster the Next Generation of Financial Empowerment

SAN DIEGO and DETROIT, Oct. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Today, financial empowerment app Mint by Intuit Inc. (Nasdaq: INTU), and Rocket Companies (NYSE: RKT), announced a first-of-its kind partnership in which Rocket Mortgage – the first fully digital mortgage experience – is now integrated into the Mint app via API to create a fast, simplified refinance experience for homeowners.

As part of this integration, Mint users are able to pre-fill information such as current mortgage information that they’ve added to their Mint profile. They are then able to seamlessly search for, apply and lock-in mortgage refinance rates with Rocket Mortgage in as few as eight minutes, instead of days or weeks – all powered by the Rocket Mortgage API. This is the first time the Rocket Mortgage experience has been directly integrated into a personal finance platform.

“Across the country, Americans are struggling with their finances as many face difficult economic times. As interest rates are near an all-time low, now is an ideal time for many to consider refinancing their mortgages and save thousands,” said Varun Krishna, SVP & Head of Consumer Finance at Intuit. “For too long, the refinance process has been an annoyingly tedious and overwhelming experience for all of us to find the right lender and loan for our situation. We’re excited to help simplify the process for Mint users with this integration of Rocket Mortgage and give our customers some peace of mind during this already stressful time.”

sparking an invasion of Egypt, Turkish-born designer Alec Issigonis (later “Sir
Alex”) had his breakthrough with the Mini: A car as small as possible on the

The
