Discover Credit Score Tracker

$8 a month for Experian score and report. Is it a FAKO score? Is the report a full, real report? Might be worth it, even if the score is BS. Opinions?

Starting Score: 652 - 10/09
Current Score: 718
Goal Score: 800+

Re: Discover Credit Score Tracker

I don't see the word "FICO" anywhere in the explanations for this so I conclude all the scores are FAKO until and if someone corrects me.

 

I don't know if they are complete reports or not but it's not worth $8 a month to me. Of course I have no use for any of these monitoring services. To me they are all a waste of money. Just MO.

 

 

From a BK years ago to:
7/09 TU-742 EQ- 779
8/09 TU-765 EQ- 783
9/09 EX pulled by lender 802

You can do the same thing with hard work

Re: Discover Credit Score Tracker

It;s a EX service not even a Vantage score
People say "Only apply for credit you NEED"

I say "apply for credit you have PRATICAL use of"

I tried that one a year a go, and I did not like it.  It is worthless.   Don't waste your money, even only $8.   Instead, better to have Identity Protection. 

You may want to try these:

 

Discover Identity Theft Protection

Monitor all three but, CR is Experian Only. 

However, the credit score is exactly same as Experian Triple Advantage CR I just requested.

Chase Identity Protection 

Monitor all three and CR from all three.

FACO ... kind of higher than actual, but I get to see the score is went up or went down.

The most important is protect your identity.

USAA CreditCheck® Monitoring Premium from Experian®

 

$8.95 per month, unlimited CR pulls from all 3 bureaus, with FAKOs.  If you are monitoring your accounts and trying to take care of issues, I haven't found a better deal.  Used in combination with an occasional FICO pull from here, can be very useful.

Re: Discover Credit Score Tracker

Through USAA?

If you have a USAA account, just go to your offers or Shopping and Discounts, I believe.. Automatically gets you the $8.95 per month rate...

 

If you don't have USAA, the price will vary.
