Credit reporting - getting your credit score for free

As I discussed recently, you don't have to have your credit score to monitor your credit for identity theft.

Lots of people still want to see their credit score, and it does give you a reasonable gut feel for how your credit is doing. Fortunately, MyMoneyBlog has five ways you can get your credit score for free.

Remember that each reporting agency and method is likely to be somewhat different, so don't expect scores from multiple agencies to be identical. If you're trying to get a, er, ballpark idea of your credit rating, and you want to watch for big drops, these might be a useful option for you.
