I posted on Facebook about this yesterday and so many of our fans & readers were not aware that there really is an absolutely FREE site to get your Credit Score. It's NOT a free trial, they won't ask for your credit card info and there are no hidden fees, renewals and all the other hoopla that the "Free Credit Score" offers have become known for.
I've used Credit Karma for quite awhile now. I started using it when I was nearing the final payoff phase of my 10+ year self created, Mountain of Debt.
What I observed is that instead of charging you a fee, as all the other websites do, they will run unobtrusive ads (banners) directly on their site for financial institutions, credit cards and other personal finance services in order to compensate and be able to offer Credit Scores Legitimately and completely FREE to consumers.
Wikipedia had this to say about how Credit Karma is able to provide Credit Scores absolutely Free to consumers:
"Credit Karma's business model involves targeted advertising, similar to many other websites. Revenue from these advertisements offsets the costs of free credit score tracking for Credit Karma members so the service is free to consumers. Credit Karma keeps users’ personal information private and does not store personal sensitive account information on its site."
So, yes, You really do get your 100% free credit score instantly, securely, and safely, direct from the credit bureaus.
Your scores are retrieved securely with no hidden fees. You can use the free "credit report card" to learn more about your credit report and score. You can also compare individual credit report categories to national averages and see how various items on your credit report affect your credit score. Plus, it's REALLY IS completely free! Have I emphasized that enough? hehehe
1. Access to your FREE Credit Score anytime
2. Exclusive offers based on your score

If you're like me and keep a check on this often, you definately want to SIGNUP at CREDIT KARMA and try it out for yourself.
With other sites, I've taken advantage of the "Free Trial" offers just to get mine in the past, only to find I'm billed an outrageous amount later as a "renewal" because I forgot to cancel. I'm soooo sick of those type of deceiving offers !
There is NO WORRY about that with Credit Karma! You will not be asked for any Credit Card info !
