Re: Expanded "FICO High Achievers" (scores of 760 and above) characteri

I was about to check my FICO scores, but MYFICO is offering the option of getting either Equifax or TransUnion, for $19.95. Why not buy one, get one free, like grocery stores?
If not, which is the better score to get; i.e., which one do creditors usually check? I'd rather get both scores, but not at the current price for one. Anyone know when the sale price for scores will be available? I'm getting cheap in my later years.
MyFICO has to pay a fee to the CRAs each time you pull a report, so they probably don't offer that because they'd lose with each pull. There are occassional discount codes. In fact one was just on here and expired a couple days ago. Continually check this site, FB, and Twitter for updates. They offer them a few times each year. Also if you are a subscriber to TUQM you get 20% off future reports. If you have SW, you get 30% off.
YMMV on the creditors. They each have their on preferences on what to pull.
