Re: Walmart CC + CreditKarma = poor man's TU monitoring service?

I do WM TU08 + CK + CS + CI + my free Annual Report. 

The only reason for *me* to buy a report is if I see a violent swing in my score that isn't expected. 

 

Best part is they're all free services :smileyvery-happy:

Cause EX makes more by misleading millions of people a year with freecreditreport.com freescore.com and millions of sites that provide the Experian Plus score. People think they know their scores, then get declined cause the scores were off and keeps many people who have questionable credit from ever applying for  new lines of credit which helps the banks.

 

Personally I'm sure they have a deal with eachother, cause there's NO reason besides profit margins that they would NOT sell you your real score. You should be able to go to a bank and request your scores before you have to apply for something. No point in a useless decline or acceptance of bad terms.

 

They won't sell it to you because more inquries = drop in credit score = better profit margins for the banks or other lending companies is generally all it comes down to. If you don't have your real score then it's easier to create  problems that would make it harder for you to get prime loans. Personally I think every Fako score should be considered fraud unless it boldly state "Scores might not be reflect or match the same scores that the lenders will pull, a Fico score is what most lenders use" and should have a list of every bank or institutions that uses the Experian Plus score if any. I believe FICO should also list all the companies who uses Fico scoring for their risk assement as well, but that's bordering too much on the concept of common sense and a honest business practice. No one wants honesty they just want comforting lies.

Re: Walmart CC + CreditKarma = poor man's TU monitoring service?

Didn't know that about Quizzle, I may check it out.  As far as EX goes, the PLUS scoring is a joke, they hype it to sound official, and frankly 10-12 months ago I would have assumed that was my credit score.  Vantage is bad as well, but at least TU gives their FICO in a variety of ways.

  • Current: EQ FICO 694, TU FICO 695, EX FICO 698 | Starting Score: 525 (05/2012)
  • Starting total revolving credit: $1100 | Current total revolving credit: $29,500
  • Inquiries (12 Months): EQ 6 TU 3 EX 6 | Most Recent: 1/21/2014
Chase Freedom $5000
DCU Visa $10000
Capital One QS $2000
AMEX BCE $1000
