If you already have a Credit Karma account, just select the option that you already have an account, and the service will be added.
Once you are enrolled, you’ll see “Email me about credit alerts on my credit report.” in your contact preferences, which confirms your enrollment.
Credit Karma Monitoring
Credit Karma will monitor your credit report nightly; you’ll get an email if anything changes.
It’s free and you don’t have to give your credit card to sign up, since it’s not a trial (like many of the other monitoring services).
The credit monitoring alerts will also show up on the notifications list in your Credit Karma account.

Credit Score. We previously covered the Free Credit Score from Credit Karma which features a detailed report card and a credit score simulator. The credit score is based on your credit report from Transunion, but is not a FICO score.
Credit Alerts. I just signed up yesterday, so I haven’t received any email alerts yet. Although, I’m planning to apply for some of the new$500offers later today, so I’m hoping I’ll get an email update with those inquiries soon.
