It’s recommended that you check your credit score periodically, as often as yearly. And you can get your score for free with freecreditscore.com. It’s very quick and easy and an important number to know. Anyone who loans you money, your bank, mortgage company, creditors, is looking at that number. And if it’s being negatively impacted by something on your report that’s not accurate, you want to know about it and get it fixed! Last time I looked at my credit report my college roommate’s parents’ address was listed as one of my previous residences! They’re not always accurate and you should check yours to make sure it represents you and no one else.
If you’re overdue to check your credit score, you can do it for free right here.
Please note that it’s FREE to get your score and there’s no obligation. However when you sign up to get your score you’re also signing up for a free 7-day trial at freecreditscorecom. After that 7 days you will be charged $14.95 per month. So please cancel right away after you get your score unless you wish to continue paying for this service.
