Riding the Credit Score Rollercoaster

September 21, 2011

Most of us understand the uncertainty of the stock market even if we don’t understand the reasoning behind it. Anyone who has turned to their favorite news station or website in the past few weeks knows that the market rises and falls like a rollercoaster. According to a recent post on the FreeScore blog, consumers may need to start viewing their credit scores in the same light.

In “Your Credit Scores Can Fluctuate More Than the Stock Market,” the credit experts at FreeScore encourage people to stay up-to-date with credit information to avoid unwelcome surprises.

Credit scores fluctuate from week to week. They can also vary from credit bureau to credit bureau. This combination can sometimes lead to differences of more than 100 points. People who think they have great credit scores may be caught off-guard by a lower score than they anticipated. This can be especially unsettling when applying for a mortgage or other type of loan.

To protect you from the unknown, offers the Power of 3. Not only will you receive on-demand access to your three credit scores and reports from the major credit bureaus, but you’ll also enjoy the benefits of 24/7 credit monitoring and automatic credit alerts.

With these services at your disposal, you can receive your own personal news reports and always stay on top of your credit scores.
