As I hope many you are aware of, you can get your credit report (not score) for free, each year by visiting AnnualCreditReport.com. All 3 bureaus take part in this service and the report is free once per year. But, you can get your free report 3 times per year. When you go to AnnualCreditReport.com, you select the 3 credit bureaus to get your report from. However, you are not required to select all three. You can choose 1, 2, or 3. To get you free report 3 times per year, simply select one bureau the first time, then the next bureau the second time, and the last bureau the third time.
Doing it this way allows you to check your report more than once per year. Understand that I feel that once per year is plenty and you can easily view all three reports once per year at the same time. However, if you are more comfortable with checking your report more often, this method is an excellent way to do just that!
