My Review of Chase’s New (Free!) Credit Monitoring Service, Credit Journey

Knowing your credit score is important in the points & miles hobby.  And Chase has just launched Credit Journey, giving anyone (not just Chase cardholders) free access to an estimate of their TransUnion score.

So folks now have another free tool to help keep tabs on their credit!

That’s important, because having a higher score improves your likelihood of getting approved for credit.  So you can earn more sign-up bonuses. 😉

Emily:   Hi everyone!  You know how much I like traveling.  Another passion of mine is shopping for locally handmade art and treasures in the places I visit.

To me, art is the absolute best thing to bring back home.  It’s so unique, and there’s soul behind it.  Of course, I also love bringing back small random gifts for family and friends.
