Hi Barry, to get the free fico montly report from PSECU what product do we have to have from PSECU? Does a regular checking account be sufficient or do we have to get a credit product from them?

I'm not Barry, but I did some digging a couple months ago and wanted to find a way to join. Just short of moving to PA, there wasn't anything I could do. However, I do recall reading info within PSECU that they print the score only on your statements. Trust but verify. You may be able to find more info via the member below:

Re: Free FICO scores for online banking customers

I called them and asked them about it. Even if we have savings or checking account with them we can get fico scores. There is no need to have a credit product with them. In addition to state, they also have several private employers who participate in the program. Need to little bit more digging into. I am trying to see if I can enrol my company as sponsoring employer to CU.

I have Bank of America privacy assist. Are these real FICO scores? They give you scores for all three CBs

No, those are not FICO scores.

FYI... Despite some rumors to the contrary, the free FICO score program for Sears_Kmart MasterCard and HSBC cardholders continues to be alive and well!

Re: Free FICO scores for online banking customers

If you are giving this to free to banking customers but charging banks for the feature, I think it'd be great if you could pitch this to Discover.

 

Visa/MasterCard are known for widespread acceptability, American Express for prestige and rewards.

 

There seems to still be a stigma with Discover. Think about it.

 

You charge Discover a whammy, they have this exclusive attractive feature, they make money, you make money, everyone's happy Smiley Happy

Re: Free FICO scores for online banking customers

This would be great.  I've got a discover more card that has the ability for credit tracking for Experian...but their scores are FAKO, so there is no point in getting it.  If FICO was available, I would definately be interested.

Re: Free FICO scores for online banking customers

I wasn't too fond of my nonrewards BoA and C1 cards, so I got the More card (took a few days). Quickly after that acceptance, I applied for the Forward and got it instantly... Hahahahahaha.

 

Anyway, the More card is turning to be pretty useless. Unless they'll convert it to Open Road, which I'll try in a few weeks, it's just collecting dust.

 

Maybe you can collaborate and have products that give your free FICO a month or week, depending on spending targets reached...
