Getting Your Credit Score For Free

Tuesday, January 4, 2011 - 1:46 PM
From the Dallas Morning News:
Under federal rules that took effect Saturday, creditors must notify consumers when their credit report has been used to provide them credit on less-favorable terms than other consumers. [...] Consumers who receive a risk-based pricing notice will be able to obtain their credit report for free so they can review it for accuracy.

If you can’t use this to qualify for a free credit score, don’t forget that DCU members can receive free monthly views of their Equifax FICO credit scores. I have more details in this blog post

Thank you Ken! This has been extremely helpful. You could also check your credit score for free when you apply for loans. When I bought a car last year, I was informed by the lender about my credit report and even found out about my credit score for free, which he used as basis for my financing rates. I just learned about complimentary free credit score check for DCU members, so I would definitely check out your blog post!
