    Mint.com was wrapped up in a bow and delivered to Intuit for $170 million.

    Mountain View-based Intuit has purchased neighbor Mint.com for $170 million.

    Mint.com, which boasts 1.4 million users, offers a free online service to help people manage their money.

    Intuit makes the popular Quicken, QuickBooks and TurboTax software, and competed with Mint online.

    The move is seen as partly defensive, and partly to bolster Intuit's online offerings.

    Intuit famously held off an acquisition effort by Microsoft in the '90s, so the spurned buyer pushed Microsoft Money in the hopes of beating Intuit at its own game.

    Microsoft Money has been discontinued. But perhaps Microsoft can swoop in and buy Wesabe, another venture capital-backed startup similar to Mint that's based in San Francisco.
