Do You Know Your Credit Score?

Do You Know Your Credit Score?

Hello Sophisticated Spenders!

To carry on with the credit card theme of the week, I’d like to ask you an important question:

Do you know your credit score?

It is VERY important to check your credit score at LEAST once a year to make sure everything is going well.

With the recent data breaches, it’s a good idea to check it if you haven’t checked it in a while (guilty!).

And it’s VERY easy to check.

I just signed up for Credit Karma (this is a free plug, I don’t receive any compensation for recommending their website).

Verdict:  I LOVED their website!

They give you lots of credit information, tips and suggestions.

I found out that my credit is finally excellent!

I’ve come a loooong way.

And I received an A on my credit report card.

This was mainly due to my low credit card utilization.

(Note: My credit report card grade would have been a big fat F around 7 years ago! I dug from the bottom!  I would say I was barely at 600)

I suggest you head over to ASAP so that you can have a look at your credit score and start the credit rebuild or monitoring process.

This time 4 years ago, I had a LOT of mistakes on my credit report and I would have NEVER known if I wasn’t checking my credit on a regular basis.

Do you use Credit Karma?  Do you use any kind of credit monitoring?  When is the last time you checked your credit score?
