Credit Monitoring

Does anyone use USAA's Credit Monitoring and/or Identity Protection? Would you recommend it? Not recommend it?

 

I noticed it was offered and I wasn't sure if it was something that I should consider using. Any advice or recommendations is greatly appreciated.

 

Btw, I already subscribe to myFico SW and QM, but at this time I don't have access to my Experian credit report and it looks like USAA's credit monitoring offers access to Experian.

Re: Credit Monitoring

I use their credit check monitoring premium. I love it in conjunction with myfico sw because it is very accurate in regards to information on all three reports. It also gives 3 fako scores that are on the conservative side, for example: my eq fako is 661 and my fico is 678 -- not that it matters much, but hopefully the ex is conservative as well since that's the only fico that I do not have access to. I monitor the info and get alerts as information changes on credit monitoring, then see the impact of it on my fico with sw. It has been an invaluable tool in my rebuilding success to date.

I'm interested in this service. Do you know if they refresh your reports everyday?

Re: Credit Monitoring

I think they only refresh the scores monthly but any new info posted on any three of your reports would be posted immediately. I just signed up for it today.

Re: Credit Monitoring

WAIT a second guys.

 

At the beginning of the sign-up, it mentions $4.95/mo

 

At the end AFTER you've paid, it tells you $1 for the first month and then $12.95/mo thereafter.
