I agree, I'm just wondering b/c it allows you to choose how many pulls you want each month...from 1-12 pulls. So maybe you have to get the 3 pulls a month package in order to get all 3. I wonder why they don't have a customer service number

It says this on the sign-up page:
"After payment is processed, you will be redirected to the CREDIT PULL page so we can pull your first credit report."
So I think we can safely assume that you will have the power to pull your report & scores at your convenience, based on the package you choose.

If I'm not mistaken, there are already some who have purchased at least one pull when the site was in BETA MODE...and they received all 3 FICO scores and all three reports with one pull.

It is all three reports and FICO scores. It is a sign up fee plus a yearly charge for 1-12 pulls PER YEAR of all three reports. If you are chosing the lowest cost, you would get all three reports and FICO scores once per year. If you choose the highest cost, you would get 12 per year.
So $250 per year for 12 times 3 reports is half what a FICO reports cost here even with the Scorewatch subsciption discount. It does seem you would be missing the monitoring. It would be less cost per report but you are committing to more cost per year as a minimum total cost.

This new site may be all well and good, but I'm going to wait for myFICO to offer this product.
I remember The Administrator- Barry mentioning some new product ideas he was working on
This was around June 1st. I wonder how much longer will it take??

As I stated before, it will take some good ole competition to bring prices down to a reasonable level. I do agree that quality of product is key. So if myFICO is going to compete with MyCreditPlan then they better make it a quality product. I don't understand why it has taken this long for the defelopment of a product like this. The FAKO sites are raking in the $$$ but providing crap scores that don't mean a thing. I guess Fair Issac held off as long as they could on selling scores to resalers. People have a right to know exactly what their credit reports says and their scores since it affects so much of their lives and the decisions they make.

Hrm, I just tried to register and was unable to. FWIW I think it's well worth the money.
There are some idiosyncracies on their signup page which are baffling for a live site:
- If you click same as shipping address, it clears your password selection
- It gives password requirements, but does not accept a password of the length specified without adding another 6 characters to their minimum.
- If you unclick the same as shipping address button, be prepared to have your shipping address, and your password wiped, but not the name on the shipping address.
- Clicking on Submit, did nothing but clear the password information.
- Why was there a shipping address button in the first place? Given it was right under the credit card information, I presume that it was supposed to be Billing Address for a checkbox name.
There is no charge on the credit card I was attempting to use as of yet so I don't think my requests hit their payment system... nor did I get an email of any sort. A part of these might just be the fact I'm running Chrome on a Mac, I may try from work tomorrow... or stop being lazy and open up my work laptop with IE and give that a shot. On a small bonus note, they have a 12 month payment plan that I can just drop as auto-pay on my toy Orchard card and then just leave that on the shelf as I need to run my life through a different card for a while... assuming I can get registered and signed up in the first place.
myFICO is the consumer division of FICO. Since its introduction 20 years ago, the FICO® Score has become a global standard for measuring credit risk in the banking, mortgage, credit card, auto and retail industries. 90 of the top 100 largest U.S. financial institutions use the FICO Score to make consumer credit decisions.>> About myFICO
