Check my credit score
The Credit People can go over your credit report and tell you what your score is for free (just schedule a consultation or call us). If you need help with your credit, you can sign up for our service and we'll help. If you're all good, then you'll at least have the peace of mind knowing what your credit looks like and what your score is.
How do I check my credit score?
If you have already gotten your free annual credit reports within the last 12 month period and you don’t qualify for additional free reports, you'll have to pay a fee each time you order a copy of your credit report from a Credit Reporting Agency (CRA). The average cost of a credit report is $10.50 at the time of writing this guide, which totals $31.50 for all three.
Trying to order just your “single” credit report with the credit reporting agency’s websites can also be difficult. For whatever reason, they do not make it easy. The CRAs are in the business of selling more than a “single” credit report. You’ll see bundles of products and services that the CRAs want you to buy instead.
