What's the best company to subscribe to to track my credit score and credit report? Thank you!

Re: Best credit reporting service

USAA CMS is the most preferred, at least my me, and I've tried a LOT of them.

5/2012: 560 credit scores across the board and $500 secured CC
12/2014: 750+ scores across the board and $80k in revolving credit

Get those baddies removed!!!

Ditto to USAA.....just ignore the scores and advice since they aren't FICO-related and lenders don't use them.

 

What many of us do is pair up daily pulls through services like USAA's and as we see changes to our CR, we come back here to pull our FICO score.

Can you pull all 3 reports daily with USAA CMS?

Re: Best credit reporting service

I assume anyone can sign up for the CMS, or is that still restricted to active duty members/family members of military?

 

Do they do a hard pull when you initially sign up for membership, or is that only if you were to sign up for a savings/checking/CC?

 

Thanks.

No hard pull at all for the CMS, only softs. I believe they take anyone for the CMS as well, but they'll verify eligibility for insurance, and maybe some of the other financial products (not sure on that). There should only be a hard pull for a credit product (CC, etc.)

 

+1 for the CMS.
