Free Credit Score *No Credit Card Needed

I strongly encourage if your credit score is lower than you wish or you don't know it....enrolling in this program!!!!  Honestly, I do  not agree AT ALL with FICA scores and the whole credit...it's just backwards!!!!  5 years ago my family had financial freedom, but due to be transferred several times in a short period two home mortgages slowly ate away at all our savings!  We spent 2 years working hard to pay our debt built up and are once ready again to begin the buying a home process...which means now it's time to start building credit back up for a better interest rate.  Recently, we turned to a similar program like CreditSesame and have spent only 2 months with the steps they've provided and I've increased my credit score by 40 points.

CreditSesame.com is a free online personal finance tool that provides the best way for consumers to securely monitor their credit and save money on debt.

Here is what I know from experience:  You will enter your personal information.  Then your credit score will process, then you will have to answer one question about what your goal is....mine was to get a home loan.  I then needed to state what type of payment I was open to which for me I want a Fixed Payment Only, 30 Years and then what I want my payment to be, purchase price, % down etc and then you save your goal.

This will then give you advice based on your goal and information entered....example.  Mine only shows my student loan balance and my monthly payment, b/c I do not have a mortgage, my car was paid off this year and all my debt.  It shows my credit score and then gives you the option to send you alerts when your credit score is higher than (whatever amount you put in)...

To get more information of course you can opt to pay a little money to get full reports.  The free part is just a overview....Like I said...STRONGLY recommend...it's a great way to start taking the proper steps towards financial freedom.
