Re: Credit monitoring

As far as I know, there is no such product that allows you to pull a true Fico score daily. The rights to the score are sold each time a request is made.  From my experience, there usually is not that much movement in the scores daily/weekly to warrant that scrutiny. For tracking improvements, log on to kredit carma, credit sesame, quizzle, or other advertised sponsored services.

Starting scores 01/02/2012 EQ 707(Fico) TU 733(Fico) EXP 735 (FAKO)
Updated scores 06/01/2014 EQ 797(Fico) TU 768(Fico) EXP 769 (Fico), EQ 849 (Next Gen 5/27/14 Penfed)

Re: Credit monitoring

The 3-in-1 service at Equifax.com called Credit Complete offers scores, but they aren't FICO scores. They are a FAKO called an "Equifax Credit Score" and lenders don't use them. However, the report info is great and you can pull a full EQ report anytime you want which is very handy.

 

As mentioned, there is no product anywhere that offers daily FICO pulls. The cheapest alternative would be to pull from myFICO.com at $19.95/report. If you do that daily, that'll be about $1200/mo. Not too cost effective. If there's an consolation, you can get that reduced by 30% if you have ScoreWatch or 20% off if you have TUQM. Because the price is so high to pull a new FICO score, the best alternative would be to subscribe to a CMS like you have now with CreditComplete. As you see changes to your EQ report, then come back here and selectively pull a FICO report to see the score change. You'd have to find another service for TU to do the same.
