I’ve preached this for years, now consumer reports is also on board with free credit reports and scores from Credit Karma, Quizzle, Credit Sesame and other sites.
“Many websites offer free credit scores. But Consumer Reports said they might come with strings attached and may not be that helpful if you want to find out how your credit score measures up.
Credit Sesame, Credit.com, Quizzle.com and Credit Karma are just a few of the many websites that promise you a free credit score.
But be aware the score you get may not be the same that score lenders use to determine your creditworthiness.”
