Getting a Free Credit Score
If your in the market to buy a car or house then its crucial that you know your credit score and try to improve it as much as possible before you make your purchase.
For example my roommate who did not establish any credit at all was hit with a 20% interest rate for his car. That is more than double the average car loan rate. With a higher interest rate when buying a house you will be paying thousands more over 30 or 15 years.
