I was just browsing around comparing the different products myFICO has, and i just happened to read. Read that last sentence..........

What's the point of having the service?

Having a copy of your credit reports from all 3 CRAs allows you compare them, correct errors and know your true FICO scores.  As FICO scores can change every time that anything happens on your credit report (every loan payment, use of credit cards etc), the scores are only valid for a short time.
 
But Scorewatch allows you to monitor changes in one of your scores (EQ) which lets you know how well you are doing and when and how that FICO score changes
The slide from grace is really more like gliding
And I've found the trick is not to stop the sliding
But to find a graceful way of staying slid
