Tracking data usage with the irregular cycle of the 12 month plan

I emailed Mint support:

I am confused when each cycle starts and my data is refreshed.
  • Is it every 30 days?
  • Every 31 days?
  • On the same date of each month?
I try to track my data usage using "3G Watchdog" for Android - and I can set the cycle to any of the three options mentioned above - but it seems like it's never consistent.

They replied:

In regard to your inquiry, we are sorry for any misunderstanding with your data cycles/resets, kindly be informed that your 4G LTE data resets every 30 days on the 3- and 6-month plans.
For 12-month plans, it alternates every 30th and 31st day (months 1,3,5,7,9,11 – 30th day, months 2,4,6,8,10,12 – 31st day).

That's super inconvenient and impossible to set my app to track it like that!
Has anyone found an app or a way to track this?

on your account page it will tell you the next day your data will reset.

what I did to remind me when close is told Google to "remind me mint 30 days from" and then "remind me mint 31 days from" etc. Clunky but it works.

what is irritating is that you have to interrogate in the ap to get usage data; it would be much better if it auto updated like Google FI app.
