That's your call to make. I don't find score monitoring to be of benefit to me and monitor my reports instead. With the different scoring models a specific number doesn't really mean anything unless a creditor you're applying to uses the same scoring model and CRA in their decision.
It's not only up to you to determine if monitoring scores is of benefit to you but how many different scores and sources you want to monitor.
Some sources may be redundant. IIRC Capital One and CK provide the same score. However, as stated above there's no adverse effect no matter how many you choose to utilize.
