Sometimes “Free” Doesn’t Mean Free

April 30, 2010

We learned this week that even if FREE is in the title of something it isn’t actually free.  We used Freecreditreport.com to check our credit report and found out that it is actually a dollar to get your credit report.  That’s not the bad part though…after 9 days they take your credit card and start charging you $14.95 per month for a “credit monitoring service.”  So since we had 2 accounts we just flushed $32 down the toilet, that was fun!

BOTTOMLINE: DO NOT USE FREECREDITREPORT.COM.  or cancel it the same day/next day and it will only cost you $1.  Apparently there is a govenrment credit check that is free, if someone could leave a comment with that address I’m sure some readers would appreciate it!
