If so, which one did u use and what was your experience?

The last time I got a credit report, I paid $30 from experian or something. I don't wanna do that again, these free credit report sites look tempting, I'm curious has to how easy it is to cancel b4 they start billing.

I tried the experian freebie and the instuctions to cancel were straightforward.

That was 3 months ago and i've yet to get it all sorted out.

I liken it to like an aol freebie.

:)

I got a free mini-report by opening a checking account.

Them-"We need to run your credit"
Me-"What is it?"
Them-"798"
Me-"Cool"

I used freecreditreport.com, you get a basic report but you don't get an actual score IIRC. Just make sure you cancel before they start charging you.

Don't ever get a "free" credit report. The only reason they claim to be free is so they can sell all your information to someone else.
