How to Check Your Credit Score

Check your credit score before going to Mike Raisor Auto Group in Lafayette, In

Do you need to check your credit score? Here are a few ways you can get your hands on that all-too-important number.

Through Your Credit Card or Loan

Many auto loan services and credit card companies now provide free access to your credit score. It may be listed on your monthly statement or easily accessible through an app or website. This is an easy way to check your credit score for free.

Talk to a Credit Counselor

If you have access to a non-profit credit counselor, they may be able to not only give you free access to your credit score, but can review your credit and history with you to give you a better idea of your current standing.

Use a Service

There are many services online that advertise access to a “free” credit score. If you choose to implement one of these services, make sure you really are getting it for free and not signing up for a free trial or anything else that seems suspicious. Do your research if you go this route.

Buy It

If all else fails, you can check your credit score by purchasing a copy of it directly from credit reporting companies. The best place to do this would probably be through myfico.com, which gives you your FICO score, the most commonly-used credit score.

Once you know your credit score, you’ll be well on your way to picking out the perfect vehicle to fit your needs at Mike Raisor Auto Group.
