Lenders know your credit score, and you should too. When you?re applying for a loan, that three-digit FICO score is going to play a big role in whether or not you?re approved. If you don?t know your FICO score, there are plenty of ways you can find it. You can check your credit score for free using Experian?s FreeCreditReport.com site; you can ask your bank if they provide free credit scores; you can even request one directly from FICO themselves?though they?ll make you pay for it.
