CreditKarma trick to get unlimited scoring back!!!

I know a lot of people who use CreditKarma, are being forced to use a newer, more "enhanced" version that offers a lot of features that are very similar to "Mint.com".

 

Unfortunately, this new version of CreditKarma removes the ability to manually refresh your credit score on a daily basis.

 

I happened to find a work around by happenstance.  If your CreditKarma account recently switched over to the new version and you want to go back to the old version, try logging into CreditKarma from a different countries's server.

 

When I was using a server in the USA, I kept getting the newer version of CreditKarma.  I chose a different server across the Atlantic Ocean, and I got access to the older version of CreditKarma.

Re: CreditKarma trick to get unlimited scoring back!!!

Or you can try using a different web browser like I did :smileyvery-happy:  On IE I was getting the updated site and when I tried FireFox, I got the old site.

April 2013 FICO Scores
Experian - 709 Chase Freedom Pull
Equifax - 788 BofA MLB Rewards Pull
Trans Union - 778 (GE Money Bank CLI scores)

In the Garden until at least 2014 to let the new accounts age and HP's fall off. 800 club here I come...

Re: CreditKarma trick to get unlimited scoring back!!!

CK had problems today. The site was down for most of the day. So, it's been new site, then old site again for many today. I wonder if they didn't try to roll out too much, too soon for too many people. I think they ended up with the old site again today just to get it up and working. Pure speculation, of course.

Re: CreditKarma trick to get unlimited scoring back!!!

Not sure it is a trick, but thanks for sharing in case it ends up being one.  I have been logging on the same way I always have and It has for the past few days been alternating back and forth from the new site to the old.  I think CK is working out bugs and what not.

I had the new version yesterday and the old version today

And I've found the trick is not to stop the sliding
But to find a graceful way of staying slid

I use Firefox with no script. So almost all of that sites scripts are blocked. Not sure if that makes any difference. I still have the old version and check everyday.
