I recently learned about a new site, Credit Sesame, that shares your real credit score and at no charge. This was great because the credit reports I check show all the detail, but never give that number.
Sign-up is easy and I was able to get my credit score quickly. It also displays revolving credit usage. I’m proud to say I’m in the green in both categories.
Credit Sesame will give you personalized savings advice on your loans and debt. There’s also the ability to set up savings goals such as for a home or with a credit card balance .
I’ve set up alerts to let me know when my credit score drops below a preset threshold, but you can also add one for each of your savings goals or for when the credit score exceeds a set number.
I would recommend using Credit Sesame as part of your financial toolbox. After all, do you know your score?
