With our newly planned venture into real estate investing, I had to make sure Scott’s credit reports and scores were ready for lenders to see.
I remembered an old service I used about a year ago from American Express, called CreditSecure, where you can get your free credit reports and scores. Free Money Friday, here we come!
The 30 day review is for first time users. As long as you cancel within 30 days, your credit reports and scores will be free. I used my free trial over a year ago, so it won’t let me do another one, but if you haven’t used yours yet, it’s a good service.
After the 30 days, they offer unlimited access, at $11.99 per month, which was actually a pretty cheap way to get daily access. If you want to have the unlimited access immediately, you can cancel and reenroll if you don’t want to wait the 30 days.
Credit Reports. You get access to all 3 credit bureau reports.
Credit Scores. The scores are “PLUS” scores, which were close to our
CreditSecure. The program that obtains your reports is run by an Experian company.
Credit Monitoring. The service also provided email alerts for changes that were posted to our credit reports.
After the 30 day trial, they will bill your American Express credit card. To cancel the service, call 1-866-617-1893.
To be a member, you just need to use your American Express card to enroll. If you don’t have one, here are some reader favorites:
