Knowing your credit score is important, especially if you planning on buying a new home or car.  Many employers and landlords also will check your credit report before hiring you or renting you a house.  Even if your not planning on moving or making any big purchases it is still important to know what is on your credit report.  Checking your report on a regular basis allows you to track changes as well as find errors.

There are tons of sites that offer your credit reports and scores. If your like me, you’ve got halfway into getting your “free” score and then you get asked for your credit card.  It is annoying and unnecessary because there are plenty of legit places online that will give you the information totally free with no credit cards needed.

Credit Score Basics

Your credit score is a three-digit number generated by a mathematical algorithm using information in your credit report.  Base Scores have a 300–850 score range. The higher the score, the lower the risk.  You have credit scores for each of the three credit bureaus: Equifax, TransUnion and Experian. Each Score is based on information the credit bureau keeps on file about you.  As the information in your credit report changes each month, so will your score.
