San Fransisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/19/2012 -- The global economic crisis had a devastating affect on many households. A lot of people found themselves out of work, prices kept on increasing and financial institutions clamped down on lending, but the bills kept on rolling in. As a result, a lot of people have discovered that their credit standing has been damaged.
Banks and stores use credit scores to determine whether or not to approve applications for mortgages, unsecured loans and credit cards. If a person has a bad credit rating, it will seriously affect their ability to borrow money. It is therefore important for consumers to check their credit report on a regular basis. As a result, a website called FreeCreditReportBlog, has been attracting a lot of attention recently.
A spokesperson explains: “Consumers can see their credit report once per year, but the standard credit report omits the vital credit score. Free credit reports only include the information that is used to calculate the score.”
“One of the big attractions of free credit score trial offers (usually offered by credit monitoring services) is that consumers get to see their credit scores and credit files for free during the trial period. The simple rule of thumb is to find the offer that provides the most information. Some offers provide a free credit score from one credit bureau while others will provide credit reports and scores from all 3 major credit bureaus. The comparison chart and reviews should help consumers decide which company to approach.”
FreeCreditReportBlog features a Free Credit Score Comparison Chart which shows reviews of the four major credit scoring companies; Profinity Credit, CreditReport.com. freecreditscore.com and truecredit. The chart shows concisely the features and benefits of each provider and a simple rating system highlights FreeCreditReportsBlog’s preferred free credit report companies.
Visitors to the site can see at a glance the credit scores applicants will receive, which bureaus are monitored, how long the free trial period is and the other benefits provided by the companies. By clicking on the See Offer link, found in the Ratings column of the comparison chart, visitors will be taken directly to the credit scoring website.
The site offers a huge resource of editorial content regarding credit and credit repair issues. Content includes answers to reader’s questions and how to style articles covering important topics such as how to improve a credit score.
