Free Credit Report

For those that might have missed the news, starting Wednesday you can obtain a free credit report (I think one time for the year) online. The following are 3 places that will be free BUT they said that at first they may be extremely busy so waiting a short time may be best or going online early early in the morning. All you are suppose to have to do is go there and request a free credit report.

www.equifax.com
www.experian.com
www.transunion.com

Thanks, Icy.
I knew they were going to do this, but, didn't know when.

Hmmm... when I worked for an insurance agency I used to run credit reports on my friends and surprise them with it... oddly enough I was never fired, I got layed off when the work dried up.

Wednesday is the date for southern consumers. Those in eastern states, DC, Puerto Rico, and U.S. territories will still have to wait a few more months to get it free.

Oops sorry guys I didn't hear that part of the news story. I thought it was throughout the U.S. Doesn't seem right that they don't have it for everybody at the same time.

They probably wanted to stagger them so they wouldn't have too big a load at once.

They had a phone number for this quite awhile ago. I didn't learn anything I didn't already know.
Where we had accounts inc. bank accounts and the history of all bills being paid on time. If you want a number for how you were rated, you have to pay for it.
I thought it was a waste of time.

Thanks for the website. I checked mine tonight and printed them out. Sheesh, the report from Equifax was 23 pages long, the one from TransUnion was 9 pages, and the one from Experian was 17 pages. Barbara
