You all know that using a credit card, building your credit limit, and paying your balance on time build up your credit score. It’s always a good idea to check up on your credit score every now and then. Well, there is a free service out here called Credit Karma. It allows to check your Transunion credit score for absolutely free. No credit card sign up and no cancellation requirement. However, this is not the real FICO score, but it gives you a good estimation of where your FICO credit score is.

Simply sign up through the link , which is completely free for credit score approximation. You will need to give up some personal information such as Social Security in order to access your credit report. Credit Karma stands out in their comparison tools. The visual presentation compares you nationally with your age group, location, etc.

Again, this is completely free, and there is simply no trial here. You check as often as you want, and it doesn’t hurt your credit score. Although you may just check your score once a month since the score will only be updated monthly.  Finally,  play with the credit simulator to see how you could raise your credit score within your account.

Some important notes:

It’s not a real FICO credit score. If you want a real FICO score, you can still do it free under a 30 days free trial from MyFico. You would need to cancel within 30 days in order to get it for free.

If you only want to look at your credit report and not your credit score, then simply visit annualcreditreport.com from the government for a complete free report of your credit history.
