How to Get Your Free Credit Score


We're all eligible to receive three free credit reports every year (one from each of the national credit bureaus), but credit scores typically come at a cost of $15.95 per score. There are some unreliable sites out there that may claim to have access to free credit scores, but generally those sites aren't trustworthy.

MyFICO.com is actually a division of Fair Issac, the company that calculates consumer credit ratings for lenders, and is a legitimate source of credit information. They have a promotion going on that includes a free trial of their services, which comes with two free Equifax FICO scores and credit reports. If you cancel the 30-day trial immediately after receiving your free reports and score, you won't have to worry about forgetting to cancel and having to pay for a service that you may not want. The option to cancel online makes it easy.
