I had a checking account that seemed to be stuck on mint.com - I tried their customer service, not much help. I wound up deleting the account and adding it back in again.

The problem seemed to be a combination of the bank changing its URL and not being willing to redirect the old URL forever (stupid!), and the fact that the bank's verification was done by choosing one of multiple question/answer pairs.
