Knowing your credit score is very important to maintaining good credit. However, many people don’t understand how to go about finding their score. AnnualCreditReport.com is the only place where you can get your credit report for free, but this report can only be retrieved once per year. It used to be that the only way to get a genuine FICO credit score every month was to pay a service such as MyFICO.com or Equifax. Normally it costs between $10 and $20 per month.
