I love this commercial for FreeCreditScore.com. No, I don’t use this service, because you only get your score when you sign up for a trial of Triple Advantage credit monitoring. So if you forget to cancel, you get charged. But it’s a funny commercial. I love how the bad 509 “goes” on the rug. Killed me.
But, seriously, if you want to keep general track of your credit score, you can got to CreditKarma.com and check your TransUnion version for free. Otherwise, I just go and get a 3-bureau credit report with all three scores for around $50 and call it good. (In conjunction with checking my credit report for free at annualcreditreport.com.)
