Re: Why do I keep seeing Free Score - Walmart --- US Bank offers it

I keep seeing different posts about Walmart card and the free score. Why do people feel the need to apply for a card simply for the score. AMEX offers the score for free for some if not all their cards when you apply. This website offers it for $20, your bank can offer it to you for free. I just don't see why that would be a reason to app for a card?


Not to mention my USBank credit card offers me a free credit score from EX anytime I want and its nothing special...

If am not mistaken it is merely a monthly FAKO score update.

Re: Why do I keep seeing Free Score - Walmart --- US Bank offers it

Yes, I understand USBank's is a FAKO, what I didn't understand was that the card offered it free monthly. That's a little more understandable for someone to want it.. I thought it was simply a one time deal. My apologies for not reading my in depth on those topics first.
