Use This Free New Tool to Help Monitor Your Credit

I recently wrote about how everyone can get their Experian FICO score for free with Discover’s Credit Scorecard.

And now, via FrequentMiler, Experian released a credit monitoring app for iPhone and Android that gives you your Experian credit report for free!

The app is convenient and easy to use, because it will notify you if there’s activity on your report.  And it’s the only service that offers you unlimited, free access to your Experian credit report.

But don’t pay for in-app purchases, like FICO scores and reports from the other credit bureaus.  Because there are ways to get those for free, too!

Send JetBlue a screenshot of your Virgin America points balance and fly 1 round-trip JetBlue flight by August 31, 2016.
