Most people realize it is important it is to keep an eye on what the big three credit reporting agencies say about one’s personal credit history … particularly in this age of identity theft. (Equifax, Transunion and Experian) So, if you haven’t requested your once-a-year free report, do it now and be sure your credit report is free from errors, but that’s not the point. One of the items sorely lacking from the ‘free’ reports are the much talked about and used “credit score.” They are available for an extra fee, which might be important if you are planning to apply for a new mortgage or refinance, but not so important (or worth paying for all three) if you just monitoring your credit. Enter CreditKarma.com … a place to get your credit score for FREE (well, for registering on their site and reading ads and advice scattered on the page). Give it a try.
