We’ve discussed credit scores here before. You know how important they can be in your overall financial planning. But how do you keep tabs on your credit without it breaking your bank?
Well, if you are looking for a free tool that can help you keep tabs on your credit situation, and gauge your financial progress, Credit Karma might be what you’re looking for.
What is Credit Karma?
By visiting annualcreditreport.com, you can get access to one free credit report each year from each of the three major credit bureaus. However, you are only entitled by law to a free credit score under specific conditions.
It’s important to understand the differences between your credit report and your credit score, and it helps to know your score as well as see your report.
Credit Karma is one of several web sites that provide you access to a consumer version of your credit score.
