Get Your Credit ScoreBy Michael Hawthorne
There are three major credit bureaus: Transunion®, Equifax® and Experian®. Each bureau maintains their own credit reports and FICO scores. Individual credit report information and FICO scores are generally similar from bureau to bureau but can vary significantly if one bureau's report contains an error or is missing some of your credit history details.
CardJoy has partnered with Transunion® to offer a 7-day trial of Transunion's three bureau credit monitoring service for $1 which includes access to your Transunion credit score and a copy of your credit report. Full details are available on the Transunion site.
If you're looking for a more comprehensive credit monitoring service, Lifelock Ultimate is our top recommendation. Lifelock's Ultimate service gives you access to all 3 annual credit scores, a monthly update of your Transunion credit score, all 3 annual credit reports, monitoring of all 3 reports for risks, and a range of identity protection services including surveillance of black markets for the sale of your personal information and attempts to open new lines of credit and checking and savings accounts using your personal information. The list of benefits goes on and you can read the full details at Lifelock. For a limited time, we can offer 10% off on all Lifelock protection plans. Check it out for yourself; you'll be as impressed as we are.
