Really Free Credit Scores
Consumers are being bombarded with “free” offers for credit reports and credit scores, but there is usually a catch. The consumer may find the free report means being subscribed to requires monthly charges unless he or she remembers to opt out. Or in order to get a free report, there is a fee for the credit score. More ways Experian, TU and Equifax make money.
However, www.creditkarma.com really does offer a free credit score. The only catch, and it is not much of one, is a lot of advertising. The advertising seems easy to ignore. There is a fair amount of information on credit reporting and Credit Karma promises never to share your information.
