Can’t sign up for My Fico subscription. Is this a good alternative?

My Fico said Experian info was not pulling and gave me error code 045 and to call then to resolve then call Fico back to sign up.

I have a free account with Experian that I have no issues using and accessing score and info. No freeze (ever) no disputes. Idk what the problem is.

I want my 3 scores and reports every month. Experian has 24.99 credit works premium option. Is this comparable to the my Fico premium membership?

CreditWorks is good. The only difference is it won't provide the additional enhanced FICO scores (mortgage, auto, bankcard, FICO9) for TU & EQ - it'll be FICO8 only. You'll get all enhanced scores, except FICO9, for EX tho.

Also - while all EX scores/report will update daily (huge plus), EQ &TU FICO 8 will only update monthly.

YW! Good luck with your rebuild - I found the daily score/report updates to be invaluable during my rebuild so I think you'll be very happy with the creditworks service.
