Have you heard of Credit Karma? Turns out there is a way to get a glimpse at your credit score for FREE!
It seemed like a pretty simple process – input your information and it will give you a credit score, along with a report card that tells you how certain factors are rated and what you can do to improve your score.
Now, I have no idea if this tracks with the FICO score (I’ll be pulling that score sometime soon), but it was informative and I was happy to see how certain actions I have taken over the last few months have raised my score 37 points (between November and February). I’m very interested to see what happens to the score once the data from last month (when we paid off 3 cards!!!!) hits the credit agencies.
So you want to know what my score is according to Credit Karma?
Glad to see it is going up! Now we are going to try my husband’s – I’ll be posting that soon.
Have you tried this? What did you think? Is there another alternative out there you could share with us?
