Get Your Free Experian Credit Report & PLUS Credit Score From American Express
- Get a free copy of your Experian credit report and your PLUS credit score based on this credit report once per year from American Express
The Fine Print
- You must be an American Express cardholder to receive this offer
- You can only access this offer once every 12 months
Your PLUS credit score isn’t used by lenders, it’s a FAKO score which is only educational & designed specifically for consumers. As such it’s not a good idea to put a lot of stock into this score, it should only be used as a very general outline of how your credit score.
There is no harm in using this service offered by American Express, but you can also get free access to your FAKO credit scores by using one of the three major credit monitoring sites: Quizzle, Credit Sesame & Credit Karma.
The best part of this offering from AmEx is the ability to get access to your credit report for free an extra time (you can access each of your three credit reports under the FCRA by going to annualcreditreport.com). I’d suggest using this feature to ensure that all information on your credit report is up to date and accurate.
