According to the Linux Mint website, it should be fully compatible with
Debian testing:

Is LMDE fully compatible with Debian?

Yes, 100%. LMDE is compatible with repositories designed for Debian Testing.


You should find qgis 2.2.0-1 in Debian testing. If you need qgis 2.4.0
and cannot wait until it makes its way to Debian testing from
experimental where it currently resides, you'll need to use the qgis
upstream apt repository.

I'm not a fan of using 3rd party repositories, because those
repositories are not integrated with each other. So I recommend to stick
to the packages in the Debian repositories.
