Creditcards.com To End Free Credit Monitoring, To Join Bankrate
Creditcards.com has sent out an e-mail to users of it’s free credit monitoring service to let them know that the service will be officially shutting down on December 18th, 2018. Users are then directed to sign up for a free credit score and credit monitoring from their friends at bankrate (bankrate owns creditcards.com). This is the same thing that recently happened with Quizzle as well. Looks like bankrate is trying to push users to it’s main service rather than having these smaller competing services operating.
This doesn’t really change the landscape for free credit monitoring though as the Bankrate service is still powered by TransUnion. If you want to monitor all three nationwide credit bureaus then we suggest:
- Credit Karma will give you information on both TransUnion & Equifax
- Freecreditscore.com will give you information on Experian
