Getting Your FREE Credit Reports

Order FREE   Annual Credit Report
Hint: Consider ordering a report from only 1 of the 3 options and - wait 4 months. Then order a report from a different 1 of the 3 options. Wait 4 months and repeat for the 3rd option. Finally - wait 4 months and repeat the process starting in the same order all over again. That way you are looking at your credit all year long instead of waiting a full year to see what may be going on! Set a reminder on your calendar!
