Quizzle and Credit Karma accurate reports?

I undertand that Quizzle and Credit Karma's scores are FAKOs, but I've been using them for credit reports for Experian and Transunion especially since they are free.  Like most credit monitoring services, they don't have complete information like soft pull info etc.  But, they seem relatively complete with regards to everything else.  Quizzle infact seems to have comments/description shown for th accounts.  (e.g.   Account closed by consumer, Account previously in dispute, etc.)  

 

Are these decent alternatives to paid monitoring services?  Are these decent alternative to to paying to get offical CRs from th bureaus?

 

I have not found one that you can pull equifax reports for free.  As far as I know, it doesn't exisit, but if you guys know one, let me know.


My Starting Score: EQ: 691 (11/30/11) TU98: 726 (11/30/11)
My Current Score: EQ: 779 (04/22/13) TU08: 835 (06/03/13)
DW Starting Score: EQ: 742 (03/02/12) TU98: 748 (03/02/12)
DW Current Score: EQ: 784 (03/11/13) TU08: 775 (06/03/13)

They're decent, but inadqueate in certain areas. Their scores can be totally way off, and in certain areas the new CK interface is buggy. However, amongst the free services, creditkarma is probably the best.

 

creditkarma and quzzle and creditsesame are decent alternatives to monitor your credit. it's best to pay (some companies charge $1 for trial) to check your CR from time to time because those tend to be a lot more detailed than the free services. 

 

I don't know either for equifax. equifax.com sometimes gives out 1 month free trial, and that's bout it.

I know the scores are bogus.  I'm just to trying to get reports free.  Seems like a pretty decent alternative.  They seem as good as any monitoring service pullers.

Don't put 100% faith in the alerts. Many in here received incorrect or very long outdated alerts with CK. Also ignore the grades and advice in CK.

Again, i don't use the alerts and know the scores are useless.  I'm saying that this is an alternative to pulling cr from the bureaus @ 15 dollars a pop.

My myFICO Equifax score and lender pulled FICO Equifax score have differed by more than 50 points before. :smileywink:

Re: Quizzle and Credit Karma accurate reports?

Keep in mind CK pulls transUnion, which is notoriously slower than the other 2 agencies...at least for me. TU is always a whole week later in updating things. Every account I have open has a date that is one week after it was opened as compared to the other 2 agencies.

 

Yes the score is bogus. Some say its close to their FICO's, but I think this is more of a coincidence since we know for a fact they are calculated differently. For example, I had a CLI on a CapOne account that went up by $2700..yet my score did not budge. And it took about 10 days for CK to notify me of the increase even though it took place one day before the statement cut date.

 

But it is useful for certain things...no doubt.
