You might be interested in these two sites! You can go and get an idea of where your credit score is and it is totally free. I believe it to be secure as well!
My score from them today:
My score today…
Big difference in scores. However, when you pull a “real” FICO score from the three financial institutions, they are always different too.
There might be a pretty big difference but they both agree that I am at a FAIR rating!
I thought this would be a good thing to do and share with you in case you haven’t seen these sites yet. They are completely safe in my opinion, as safe as anything else on the web.
Also, we need a baseline to see if the Authorized User idea works! Will check back each month after I start using it to see if it makes a diff and post for you.
So what’s your score? Go see!
