Wonderful Credit Tool To Use
I had gone through some tougher periods in life and my credit score reflected it. This app has been such a helpful tool (especially with the simulator) to understand what makes my score go up, go down, etc. It’s also given me a peace of mind knowing what my score is exactly at any given day. I love getting notifications knowing when someone pulls my score to knowing when my score changed. The newest update, which explains step by step why it moved the way it did, makes it even easier to understand. It’s not rocket science, but it’s not something taught in a class before you graduate. I really have benefited from this app and it’s taken the “unknown” to a level of knowing - how I can help myself. Thank you!
Score isn't accurate
I actually like this app, I use it because it's connected to my Capital One credit card account but the score it shows isn't accurate. I just paid $2151 to pay off 1 credit card and $1000 to pay off another, I was going to purchase a car at the end of they year because I'm waiting on my credit score to go up. In January it said it was 564, I made 2 small payments of $500 and $300 to 2 cards and it jumped 50 points to 614. So I'm like oh once these last 2 payments are made it's gonna go up to 653 where I'm usually at and will be closer to 700 by December. Well I go into a dealership on Saturday February 24th and they told me if my credit score was 625 they'd give me a car with $0 down. My friend just bought her car a month before me and she told me her score was 652 and higher than what Credit Wise showed and she got a 2018 Honda CR-V with $0 down so I let them run mines. 30 minutes later the lady comes to me and say "which car do you want, go pick your car out cuz I got you with $0 down!" I rolled off the lot in a 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander SEL and my credit score with TransUnion is 667 where it shows 614 here on Credit Wise and they go by the TransUnion score, it was 632 with Experian as well so either way I was leaving the lot with a new car. They don't go by Equifax anymore when looking for financing.
Helpful Free App for Credit Monitoring
CreditWise is a very helpful user-friendly app for monitoring your TransUnion report. It updates weekly and allows you to view any changes, if there are any. It does provide a TransUnion-generated Vantage 3 credit score, which is usually considerably higher than the FICO scores that lenders actually use, so try not to take it overly seriously. Also, the credit simulator—which I think is also powered by TransUnion—sometimes provides some really wacky information, so try not to take it too seriously either. According to the simulator, my credit score would greatly increase if I were to allow all my bills to become delinquent for a month, and if my property would be foreclosed upon. It also shows that I’d see score gains if I were to have my wages garnished. Let’s hope that’s not accurate!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
