Credit Score Checking

I was discussing with a friend about the effect on your credit score of checking your score too often, or having various dealers/banks checking your score as well. Supposedly, you shouldn't have your score checked or requested more than x times a month or something like that. Can anyone shed some light on this?? Thx.

every time you check your credit they take out 3 points. the best way in checking your score without penalty is when your credit is pulled by any company you have 2weeks of requesting the info. also certain months of the year three credit bureaus allow their customers to pull their credit for free and no penalties. hope this helps.

Credit Score Checking

Your score(s), sometimes referred as a "FICO" score is named after Fair Isaac Co that developed the complex formula and guarded it for years like the Hope diamond. Today good info is available at sites like myfico.com under "learn". It's a pretty complex formula made up of a ton of criteria including age of accounts, payment history, inquiries past 24 months etc. but also how you use the credit you have or "utilization" of revolving credit. It is best to only use around 20%-25% of the available credit. Today's scoring system is supposed to weed out multiple inquiries from let's say auto dealers in a short period of time such as when you might be shopping for a car loan etc. However a great deal of inquiries (or credit pulls) can have an impact on scores as would new credit lines but go online and you can get detailed descriptions of how different things will affect your score. Good luck.

This won't give you your actual FICO score, however. I cycle through the three reports available during the year, just to be safe. Checking your credit this way has ZERO impact on your credit score but you won't actually know your credit score either. All three of the reporting agencies will allow you to buy your credit score during the free credit report process... it's usually like $8 or something like that and this option also doesn't impact your credit score.

Having a 3rd party query your credit score just to provide it for you can impact your score overall, since they likely will pull the information as if you've applied for credit to get the full report.

That's because you were probably looking in the right subforum.

I pay 15 a month to hve unlimited access to my report and FICO score. I also get the alerts and stuff. i do the Freecreditreport.com thing. i have had it for a couple years now and its worth it. you always know wat is going on. you checing yur own credit report never hurts you. its only when someone else makes an inquiry.

I jsut bought a car and between thedealer and my bank making an inquiry and my debt income ratio changing it dropped 12 points.
