Best Credit Monitoring Service

Anyone have a recommendation for the best monitoring service?  I'd be looking for something that would let me pull a couple of reports a month with scores, and give me an alert when there is a new inq.  Nothing fancy.  I figure'd I'd ask the experts here what you use :smileyhappy:

I like USAA-CCMP as well.  $12.25/month.  Call in and ask them for a better rate and they may get you down to $6.12.

Re: Best Credit Monitoring Service

I do not have USAA but that's what everyone is always raving about on here so I would take a look at them they seem to get the most thumbs up.  myFico is good too you just won't get all three reports but there still good to go!

Re: Best Credit Monitoring Service

Thanks for the advice everyone but I do have a question..

 

I signed up for USAA and under the inq tab, how do I tell which  inq's are hard and which are soft ? Or am I unable to do so ?

Re: Best Credit Monitoring Service

Do you have to be USAA member to use their credit monitoring service?

No, you can sign up for their monitoring service only.  That's what I'm doing.
