Curious, how many points did you lose from the two inquiries ?  Is there a threshold that SW uses to alert you ?

i did not lose any points at all....thats the funny thing other than not getting any score watch alerts for the inquiries.

 

As far as the threshold, i have no idea.  I would think that any inquiries would give me an alert!!!!

I think that's probably why you didn't see an alert, I believe scorewatch only sends notifications when your score goes up or down.

Thats not true.  I have received alerts for both inquiries and new accounts that resulted in no score change.

It's really only useful for knowing your EQ FICO score if updates happen.

I don't agree, if someone is trying to get credit in your name don't you want to know

 

Besides my wife has score watch also and she purchased a new car in May and the next day got a score watch alert showing the inquiries, it also stated that here score had not changed.

 

I spend good money for this services and when Myfico says it will alert you to changes in your report, I expect an alert without having to purchase a report to find out!!

 

And another thing, I had received 2 or 3 emails from Myfico since I purchased the car that said "No Alerts this week"

Re: No score watch alert!!!!!!!!!!!

@ 669,

 

There's a population SW works perfectly for. That being said, I still feel it's better suited to people with very little movement on their reports and not in rebuilding mode.

 

I enjoy the forum a great deal and benefit from all the help, wisdom, and silliness. I really feel a forum's strength or weakness comes from its members but keep SW as a way of being supportive. Obviously, there are less expensive/frustrating ways of monitoring changes to one's report but most of them don't include FICO scores. Still, I more or less feel SW's FICO score is a snapshot and likely inaccurate between updates, LOL!
