Filling out a rental or lease application and need your credit report?
I recommend www.freecreditreport.com
You can get a free credit report from this site in fifteen minutes. The interface is confusing – so I’ll walk you through the steps to get your free credit report.
Create a new account (you will need a credit card)
Read the fine grey Print. You are actually signing up for a monthly subscription and it is a free 7 day trail period. If you don’t cancel within the seven days, your credit card will be charged $16.95 for the monthly subscription.
If you want the free credit report select No Thanks. Selecting Yes will get you a credit report from all three major credit bearueas but will also cost $31.95
Name the file and save somewhere on your computer.
