Where can I check my credit score?


There are many ways to obtain a free credit score, and each might be a little different. For example, you can get one from your credit card issuer (Capital One and Discover, among others), or you can sign on to one of the free online credit monitoring sites, such as Credit Sesame, Credit Karma, or myBankrate. You can also pay FICO or Experian or others to see your monthly FICO credit scores. They all show you your exact numerical credit score and tell you whether your score is bad, poor, fair, good, or excellent.
