How Many of you use Creditkarma?

Like the title suggests, I would like to know a couple things about this creditkarma business. First, how many of you use it? Second, How often? Third, How accurate is it when compared with your fico score? I don't see myself ever quitting my SW membership (it has been so valuable so far), but I am also enrolled in credit monitor plus through USAA. My problem is with Credit monitoring plus. They recently decided that they would discontinue allowing unlimited credit report refreshing, which is pretty much my reasoning for enrolling. A lot of things happen during the month and I am the kind of guy who likes to know where I stand, not once per month, but whenever I want. So don't be shy folks, what are your experiences?

Re: How Many of you use Creditkarma?

I use credit karma daily. The score is not close to the TU FICO but I like it because I can monitor when changes occur on my TU report. I know exactly when I should spring for the TU FICO score.


Starting Score: EX: 575 (PSECU 5/2/12) TU: 582 (3/6/12) EQ: 664 (4/27/12)
Current Score: EX: 699 (PSECU 06/04/14) 702 (my FICO 08/05/14) TU: 699 (08/01/14) EQ: 675 (07/08/14)
Goal Score: 720

Everyday and the approval meter says me or the old lady have a poor chance for a freedom card. We have csp, select and palladium card... so its not accurate

Re: How Many of you use Creditkarma?

I use it daily as a poor man's credit monitoring. I don't find the ck score useful, though I pay some attention to the vantage.
In wallet: Ink Plus 10k, AMEX TE 25k. In bag: CSP 16k, USAA WMC 15k, Hyatt 13k, United MPE 12k, AMEX HHonors 3k. In SD: Cap 1 QS 5k, Discover IT 7k. FICO 08 says my EQ is now 844, was 510 in 2010.

Re: How Many of you use Creditkarma?

I use it everyday. I really don't trust the CK score but the CK Vantage is interesting. I see it fluctuate a lot. I don't care about the Insurance score.
