HOW MUCH? - free online credit reports

Free annual credit report online.

   
 

There are numerous online sources to obtain your credit reports and some of them offer the opportunity to see what your current credit scoring looks like.

Remember that there are three FICO credit scores, based on reports from three credit bureaus which are not the same. Reporting is not mandatory and many banks report to one agency only. In most cases, your score will be similar on all three reports. Similarly, when you apply for credit, the lender will obtain only one credit score from the credit bureau which they use. However, when applying for big loans like a mortgage, most banks will check all three scores, so it is not a bad idea to know what they are.

You can get your reports directly from credit reporting agencies on the internet, by mail or, in some cases, by phone. In some states if you applied and were denied credit you can get your report for free.
