I seem to hear radio commercials every day for FreeCreditReport.com, and I get irritated every time I do. This is NOT the site you want to visit for your free report. If you order your free report from this site, you get an automatic trial subscription to a credit monitoring service that will cost you $12.95 per month if you don’t cancel within 30 days.
Instead, go to AnnualCreditReport.com, where you can get a free credit report with no strings attached. Plus, this site has tons of information about protecting your privacy, improving your credit scores, and other such matters.
