What is the best place to get a credit score?

Postby CCGuy88 » Mon Dec 31, 2012 10:26 am

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to see where is the best place to find my credit score?

Annualcreditreport.com

Do they give you a complete credit score, and all activities?

Sorry, I am new to everything, and would appreciate any help. Thanks.

That's the right place to go. You may have to pay for the actual scores, but you can get your report there.
Amex Platinum
Amex BCP 21K
Amex SPG 5K
Barclaycard Arrival Plus WEMC 5K
Chase Sapphire Preferred 23.5K
Credit Union 10K
Discover IT 7.75K

So I need to find out my activity first, then find out my actual score?

Ok, so I need do I need need to pay for each credit score? I'm trying to figure out whats the best direction to take, it looks like I have to pay 6-7 for each one? Or is there trial I can take?

Sorry for the all the questions, I just need some guidance lol.

I pulled each of the reports for free last week. Then for the scores I paid $40 for 2 of them from myFICO (only offer TU and EQ). It may be cheaper going direct, as you mentioned $7 (although I thought it was a bit more), I went with myFICO as I prefer their format in presenting the data.

I would create an account and give it a shot. It appears they are offering a 10-day free trial to a few product, but the score you will pay for.

On myfico, there is a 10 day trial of score watch which gives you score + report.
