You can not get your score for free but you can get a copy of your report for free at the web page that fireyone has listed for you above. You will have to pay for your score, those are available on the webpage fireyone listed also with a pay option.

Hi bsimple0700
One credit report is free in a year from each of the three credit reporting agencies, but you need to purchase the credit score or your FICO score which is not available free of cost. You can purchase your credit score form myfico.com or you can also purchase it from the three credit bureaus.

There are many online business that offers free credit scores, but for that you need to sign up with any of their credit services. For example, Washington Mutual ESPN credit card offers free FICO score through Transunion if you hold their credit card. Myfico also offers free credit score for a period of 30 days and then charges a one time annual payment of $89.95.

Hi Paramjit
To get a credit report you need to apply one from annualcreditreport.com. However, the three credit bureaus also offer one free report every year as per the Federal law. But if you want more than one report from a bureau you need to pay for that additional copy.

If you go to Annual Credit Report ( dot) com, you pay just $5.00 ( or something like that, not very much..) to get your Credit score.

Reports are free once a year, but scores always cost...

Or, if you've been denied credit, a job, or a rental opportunity, based on your credit, you will receive a written letter that you can forward to the bureaus to obtain a copy also.

There is no "set" number of points that an inquiry can "cost you". It is variable... One thing is for sure though... Multiple inquiries in a short period of time, spread out out over different types of credit requests is very bad...

For example, a mtg inquiry, then a credit card inquiry, then a loan inquiry, then an employment inquiry, then a collection inquiry....

A common misconception though, is that if you have a single car dealership pull your credit 10 times n a single day, that those inquires are all counted separately against you. In a situation where you are "shopping", for mortgages or cars, for example, the score counts multiple auto or mortgage inquiries in any 14-day period as just one inquiry. In addition, the score ignores all mortgage and auto inquiries made in the 30 days prior to scoring. So, if you find a loan within 30 days, the inquiries won't affect your score while you're rate shopping.

Thanks a lot for clearing that up. How long does debt collector inquiries stay on your report? I have heard different periods of time. I think it is a really wise idea that the auto and mortgae inquiries do not stay on for long. A wise person will always shop around for the best deal or mortgage loan. Usually if I am just shopping for a vehicle I will request they do not run a credit check until I have completely made up my mind. I tell them why so I do not look like I am hiding something.

Two years on all "hard" inquiries. Some companies used by mortgage officers and car dealerships will only SHOW the last 30, 60, or 90 days, but trust me they matter, and they stay on your actual credit reports for 2 years...

Gosh thats a really long period. I wonder why the all the collection time limits are set as they are and why they are never redone. Not trying to advocate for the person who goes delinquent on their debt but that 7 years is such a long period. I would like to see them shorten it at some point. Not every person who messes up their credit did it because they felt like it..some really have really good reasons like illness,job loss and loss of a spouse.

Ok......so, 'Hard Inquiries' can lower your score, too. If there is a 'Hard Inquiry', on your CR, and it's MORE than 2 years old, can you 'dispute' it? i would think it wouldn't be difficult to take off, since it's not a debt, or anything like that.
