Re: Should I buy Fico Standard, Score Watch, or Fico Quaterly Monitoring?

Personally, I subscribe to the annual Score Watch because I like the EQ monitoring and alerts (both text and email).

I have 8 credit cards and nothing else.



08/28/2016 - EX 815 (Credit Scorecard EX FICO® Score 8, range 300-850)
08/19/2016 - TU 820 (Discover TU FICO® Score 8, range 300-850)
07/26/2016 - EQ 816 (Citi EQ FICO® Bankcard Score 8, range 250-900)
GOAL - 800! - App free since 12/13/2015

I also recommend a credit montoring service outside of myFICO so that you can get alerts for all 3, not just EQ if you have ScoreWatch or not just TU if you have FICO Quarterly Monitoring.

My daily report monitoring consists of:

Score Watch (EQ) - paid service

Credit Karma (TU) - free

Quizzle (EX) - paid service ($7/month) but I took advantage of a 40% off Black Friday Special

For the additional service? I recommend one where you can pull all 3 reports on a daily basis. Check out the CMS Guide found stickied within General Credit Topics. There are a couple of them out there still including USAA's CMS is you pay for the upgrade and EliminateIDTheft. I've used both and like them. Of course, ignore the scores and advice.

 

 

ETA...probably should have added that since nothing is really happening on your reports, a daily puller isn't that necessary. There are many services out there that monitor your credit as the prev. poster mentioned. Ideally you'd want access to reports too but daily isn't needed in your situation. Many of the services on that list offer monthly reports w/ the subscription.
