Finding the Best Free Credit Report Service

If the 2008 financial crisis didn't already do enough damage to people's frazzled nerves, hidden, sometimes undetectable errors on a person's credit score can wreak havoc on one's personal finances and even jeopardize current or future employment opportunities.

The three major credit reporting agencies - TransUnion, Equifax and Experian - are responsible for keeping accurate records on millions of Americans, so there's potential for errors on credit reports; even finding differences between the three are common.

To help consumers sort through the maze of possibly conflicting reports, there are a number of services which will provide a free credit score, but finding which one of these services is best may also prove to be more a guessing game than making an educated choice.

One of the best among a large field of choices is FreeCreditScore.com. In addition to their 7-day free trial offer, the site also provides a wealth of information on what is important in one's credit history and tips on what separates a strong credit report from a weak one.
