  • annualcreditreport.com I believe. You'll have to pay to actually see your score. Also, if you apply for a loan and you get denied you can get free credit reports from the bureaus.

  • Go to annualcreditreport.com It's not a gimmick or company or anything. You can get all three for free. I did it when we were thinking of buying a house.

  • They even advise you to get one every few months, one at a time from the bureaus so you can spread it out. You only get 1 per year for free.

  • No way. You don't have to pay to see the report. You will have to pay to see your score, it's like $5 or $7.

  • www.annualcreditreport.com This is the ONLY site you can get all three reports for free once a year. You do have to pay for your credit score though. You will be able to download your reports right to your computer and print them out or they will mail them to you.
