MYfico score question

I currently am subscribed to EQ monitor and experian monitor service
and just recently as a week ago i i paid services to see myfico eq and experian fico services

Is it worth the montly payments to EQ and Exp monitor services and/or myfico score? or can i rely on myfico scores and the report that comes with it?

I tried to cancel EQ last week before my subscription renewal but they gave me another month of free service for my reconsideration

Do I have to be a paid subscriber to freeze my credit reports as well?

If I do freeze my credit reports Will it effect my credit card accounts to review my credit when they review account ?

I hope I explained it well and thanks for any contribution you input into this

Is it worth the montly payments to EQ and Exp monitor services and/or myfico score? or can i rely on myfico scores and the report that comes with it? See above.  If you're paying for and/or receiving 4 credit monitoring services, that's up to you to determine if it's worth it to you.  Personnally, I'd only go with the MyFICO services.  And it really only matters if you're going to be applying for additional credit any time soon.  If you're in the Garden, like many of us are, it's really not as necessary.  While in the Garden, I only pull my reports quarterly, or if I get a notification from AMEX CreditSecure of a significant change in my report(s).

Do I have to be a paid subscriber to freeze my credit reports as well? No. Anyone can freeze their reports, any time.  I've frozen and unfrozen my EX reports a number of times over the years, depending on my needs at the time.

If I do freeze my credit reports Will it effect my credit card accounts to review my credit when they review account ? No.  SP's not affected by freezing your reports.  Happens all the time.  You simply won't be able to (easily) apply for new credit, since your reports are frozen and HP are not possible when frozen. 

I hope I explained it well and thanks for any contribution you input into this
