Have you checked it this year? Is it better or worse than it was a year ago?

I know mines worse than it was last year, its been a hard year and my cc's show it. Working on it though. Not going to check what I already know, too depressing.

 It got really really bad after my divorce. I cleared up my debt at the beginning of this year, and rebuilding my credit but I won't look at my score for atleast another year.

Better. I only check it when I get an email stating that there has been a changed. I don't really care to much on it. I only have one credit card (Macys) and I am not planning to ever buy a house and my car is paid off. I maintain it for just incase situations and/or if my son will need me to co-sign something when he's older

Yeah, but haven't checked it for a few months now. It's over 750 I believe.

You should, it's neat to see how much improvement you can make in a short time.

Congrats on paying off your car! Why do you not want to buy a house?
