Although www.myFICO.com is a super site for education, it is a 'for-profit' organization -- you can buy your credit report here. This is free advertising, folks.

Is there anywhere else who are trustworthy and would give perfect report?

All third party sources of credit used by the lending community. As a loan officer, I use an agency that pulls all three reports just as MyFICO does -- I can pull single reports, just as they can.

The public can go anywhere, but the MyFICO site is very trustworthy, to use your words, when someone wants their score -- they do need to pay for it.

To address gliches and errors on your credit report, the free websites are just fine -- just try to avoid paying any fees, because they will rope you in.

Yes I seen some of the fees associated with these sites and they can rope you in. I don't mind paying for it either. I noticed when I pulled my report from one of the free agencies I didn't see my score..was it there and I over looked it?

I think that you have to pay for your score if you want it, I haven't wanted to see mine that bad, I know it is not where I want it to be right now, so I will wait awhile.

I am not going for loans anytime soon and I know there are things that need to fall off. They should shortly so maybe next year I'll pay the piper and look.

Yes its commendable. I would do a credit check once a year to at least know the status.

Once a year seems okay Laura, you just need to watch out for identity theft.

It's about $15 to get your FICO score from myfico.com. There is a free trial which I'm sure is for a credit monitoring service. That will probably be helpful as long as you cancel before they charge you an arm and a leg.

I can't stand places like that. How can you call it free if you have to pay for something else to get it. It's very mis-leading.

I just don't see the importance of knowing your credit score. Why pay someone to tell you if its going up or down. If you pay me $5 and tell me how you are paying your bills I can tell you if it has gone down or up, Ha Ha(plz don't take me seriously.)

I do pull my own credit reports to make sure that everything is in check and that my identity is not being stolen, other than that I will just keep paying my bills on time knowing that it is increasing my credit score.

It should be free in my oppinion, but where there is a market for something there is always a scam to go a long with it.

I too agree with cbass1017 on this point that if we need to pay some amount, even if small, to get the FICO score, then how can we call it free.
