Mint.com Free credit score
Getting a free credit report and score these days is actually really easy. No credit cards. No "free-trials". Just free credit scores and reports. The latest resource to help with this is Mint.com
Mint.com is a great tool to help keep track of your spending, and now there is a Beta free credit score that you can get with them. I just logged onto my account and the free score was available to me after answering a few questions. Login to your account to see if you have the free Beta tool to get your free score.
Want a free credit report? You can get 3 free reports from each bureau each year at annualcreditreport.com.
There are several other ways to get free credit scores. Check out this POST to discover easy ways to get your free credit score.
How Often should you check your credit score?
A: I think once a month is good enough. With so much identity theft and stolen credit card information, it's good to keep yourself updated.
Why do I get different scores from different sources?
A: Most free credit scores are only estimates, but are fairly accurate. There are also 3 companies that these estimates are based off of: Equifax, Transunion, and Experian. So you will get slightly different.
What's the difference between a credit score and credit report?
A: A score is just that--a score...it's an actual number with out all the details. A report will not have a number, but give specific details about where your credit it is coming from. Both are good to know.
