Whats the best way to get my credit reports and scores ?

[ Edited ]

Hi,i got my free credit reports months back from and i'm now wanting to get up to date reports..I tried calling the 3 major CAs to get them direct from them but none of them had a option to let me speak to customer support unless i had gotten a report within the last 90 days..So whats the best way to go about getting up to date reports..I know i will have to pay some sort of fee to get them but i was hoping the fees won't be to high because i'm kinda tight on funds..i was told to get them direct from each CA and i thought i could call and get them but i guess not...I know i can get them here at myFico but the fee is kinda high or at least it is to me at this time...Any advice ?

The best place for the most accurate and detailed reports is directly from the CRAs.  Not sure how much just the report would be from each.


There are credit monitoring services that include all three but each of those only allow so many pulls. 


There is a stick for CMS on the forums.

You can definitely get them directly from the CRA's.  You're probably just calling the wrong numbers to order your reports.  A CMS might make more sense if you know you're going to be checking your reports and scores often.  As mentioned above, there's a CMS guide that you can refer to.

myFICO is the consumer division of FICO. Since its introduction 20 years ago, the FICO® Score has become a global standard for measuring credit risk in the banking, mortgage, credit card, auto and retail industries. 90 of the top 100 largest U.S. financial institutions use the FICO Score to make consumer credit decisions.
