Credit Sesame Credit Monitoring doesn't rest on Christmas :)

Woke up on Christmas morning to an email from Credit Sesame.

Subject: Credit Monitoring Alert

Message: You have 1 Credit Usage alert

 

Logged in to Credit Sesame to learn one of my credit cards went from 10% to 0% usage. Thank you Credit Sesame!

 

Happy Holidays everyone!

 

FYI, the card is Fidelity Investment Rewards AMEX (serviced by FIA), the statement date is 12/22, the credit alert date in the email is 12/24, and the actual email was received 12:35am Christmas Day.

True. But what if utilization had gone from 0% to 80% without me buying anything?

I think credit monitoring worked exactly as it was supposed to... to alert me of changes. And it's up to me to decide if it is abnormal activity that warrants further investigation.
