Re: How Many of you use Creditkarma?

I use it to monitor changes on my TU report (inquiries, balance report, new accounts, etc.), I ignore the score.I check it daily when I am eager to see something report or when I know that one of my cards will report.

I also use credit.com to monitor my EXP report, it has a vantage and FICO estimate score that is interesting (681 estimated FICO vs 676 actual FICO).

 

Use it along with WM free monthly FICO and you have a free monthly 'monitoring service' for TU.

As of Feb: AAoA 1 year, 10 months
CK TU: 740; Wal-Mart TU FICO: 721
CS EX: 715
8 CCs, 15 total accounts.
Negs on report: 1 30 day late aged 3 years
5 inquiries

I check it everyday to see changes on my TU, for inquiries and new account information. For me my score has NEVER been accurate.  It shows a score of 627 :smileysad: however my scores from Walmart and other LP have always hovered around 689-697.

Re: How Many of you use Creditkarma?

I just signed up. I didn't realize it was only for TU. I thought it was like USAA credit monitoring plus, which shows all three reports and scores. I guess they still get my 15 bucks per month...
