There ok they pull TU and give you a FAKO score for $9.99 a month. One thing I liked about them was I could log on everyday and check my TU report. 

The ID theft was a waste it took them 2 months to let me know I had a new account reporting.

maybe i will get them,i did call discover and ask them about it and a nice guy went over basically everything listed on their site and he even mentioned differences between id theft protection vs credit card fraud protection. nice thing is i can get it and cancel it at any time and start it up again at anytime with no penalties. :smileylol:

I may head on over to Discover and check this out. If they now offer 3 reports for $9.99 a month it might be worth it.

I know American Express offers it for 15.99 a month with FAKO scores but you can only check them twice a month.

Re: ID Theft Protection through Discover

Perhaps you may try what I am doing. I pay myFICO $4.95 a month for my true TU FICO score and monitoring and I also pay Citi $4.95/month for IdentityMonitor, which updates me quite frequently on items affecting all of my credit reports and scores. Both of these services work with the security freezes currently in place on all my files.

 

I passed on the service offered through my Discover card.



Starting Score: EQ 675 | TU 688 | EX 702
Current Score: EQ 699 | TU 727 | EX 715
Goal Score: 750 (Across All 3)
