In case you’re not familiar with MyFICO, they’re the consumer division of Fair Isaac, which is the company that invented the FICO credit score. Their ScoreWatch product is essentially a credit monitoring service that gives you two free Equifax Score Power reports per year. These reports include a complete Equifax credit report plus your Equifax-based FICO score. They also alert you whenever your credit report changes, and provide you with an updated FICO score at the same time.
While this sort of service may or may not appeal to everyone, there’s one killer feature that pretty much anyone should love — a 30 day free trial which, at the very least, provides you with access to a free FICO credit score. If you sign up and decide to keep the service, it costs $8.95, or $89.95 per year. But if you cancel within 30 days, there’s no cost to you whatsoever. You can also try the free service Wise Piggy.
So what are you waiting for? Go check your score and let us know where you stand. Mine is 795. Can you beat that? 😉
