I have a student loan that I paid off in Feb. 2019. As of yet I still have to see my account updated to reflect that last payment. Instead of removing it from my credit, it added that I owe a payment of 25.00. I CS a message and I still have yet to hear back from them. Otherwise I think they are going a good job!

I'm very disappointed with false advertising and scams. Do you collect our information for identity theft or just for statistical purposes? I'm trying to find out if my identity was stolen years ago, and I want to correct it in order to leave my grandson a legacy when I pass away. You don't honestly take someone's credit and make it better, you just look for people who already have good credit, give them honorary points and credit yourself with it. I am anxiously awaiting favorable results as you promised!

They made it easy to use and didn't have to jump through hoops to see what your credit score was. They also give option and way to help make your credit score better. I love it. Will recommend to everyone I know. Thanks for making it easy.

I have believed the reports I get from Credit Sesame. I have been with Credit Sesame for over a year and check all my statuses two or three times a week. If there is a better place to get my reports, I have not heard of them.

I filed a dispute on my record for an account I really don't have knowledge of. Hoping it will be removed. I have been trying to raise my credit rating for a while. Was able to get a charge card thanks to you. Will wait for results. Thank you.

I wasn't taught financial literacy at home or school, so I made a lot of painful mistakes. However, with Credit Sesame I'm able to finally understand what actions affect my credit and how to manage my financial life better. I have improved my credit score dramatically following the tips and advice on Credit Sesame's site. This is empowering. Thank you, Credit Sesame!!

When I attempted to sign on to my account today, it first rejected my email or password; when I asked for password help, it rejected my birth date or last 4 digits of my social. I searched for help and got no direct help, just lots of written answers that didn't really apply to being rejected in every category. FINALLY, I asked for human help, and got a message suggesting I change my browser. That worked, but it took much too long to get to that answer. Put that at the top of the options list!!!

Thank you for the great service. This is a no doubter to work with with this company. This site is a great value if you want to take charge of your finance. Don't be the other companies that will lure in and then charge a monthly fee.

This app is all about their [Credit Sesame] advertisers, that's how Credit Sesame makes their money. You don't get a complete credit report as other apps such as Credit Karma and Credit Wise issue. Credit Sesame gives nothing more than a "summary," statement without the details. Credit Sesame (and all other apps) give you a FAKO "Vantage Score," which is always lower than a true FICO score, but they want you to think your score is higher so you can take advantage of their "offers."

The service is always trying to get you to obtain its paid vendor services to the detriment of your credit. What Credit Sesame doesn't tell you is that your credit is damaged when you continuously try to obtain what they are selling. Your data is not safe on Credit Sesame. They sell it to their paid vendors, where you will be solicited incessantly for credit cards, loans, and other financial instruments. I don't recommend using this service when there are so many other free apps that don't abuse like Credit Sesame. People whose second language is English should stay clear of this app.

Credit Sesame has helped me improve my credit rating in just 5 months!! I heard about Credit Sesame from Jordan Cheyenne's YouTube channel. She was so right. They showed me where my delinquencies were which I paid and they also showed me what cards would raise my score. Taking care of those delinquencies and being approved for those cards added 50 points!! I know I'll be over 700 by Summer. Thank you Credit Sesame!!!

Very detailed and outlined of your credit history. Gives a nice layout of your financial history and also what changes one could make to improve their credit score. Also, what one needs to do to make the improvements and what not to do.

I truly enjoy navigating through your site, it is clear and informative. I truly like seeing the credit cards I can apply for and their published chances of me getting one. Also showing me the loans I could possibly qualify for is good to know.

The experience was very thorough and informative, and the 2nd time around it was much better. The screens were helpful. The only fact I didn't like was the fact that one of my credit cards weren't supported. I like this service better than Credit Karma. There's your dagger!

Credit Sesame is great about keeping up to date on my scores and lets me know about changes to my scores immediately. They do a great job of keeping me abreast of things going on with me and my credit. Thanks for all you do. It's a great job.

Even though I am not ready to get more credit cards, I was pleased with the choices. I don't believe in having multiple credit cards as the more I have open and don't use, the less my credit score will become. I am happy with the cards I have and if circumstances warrant, I will get another one but right now I am satisfied with my scoring, my overall "report card" and have no intentions of destroying what I worked hard to accomplish. Thank you!

I go to the web site once a week and check on my accounts. I have gone from a poor credit score to a excellent score because of using this website! I highly recommend using Credit Sesame if you want to get back on track and stay there.

This is the first online credit score service which went through after I got my password as I wanted. I was surprised that my Credit Union has increased the Master Card credit limit to $800. It is the first credit card I had in several years. I thank the people who have given me access to my credit score and it shows how I can have a strategy to increase that number. I wish you well. I hope you have a business model which leads to your income statement to be in the black!

I was notified of a lower score of 764 points on Jan 31, 2019. Then on Feb 15, 2019, I received a higher score of 817 points. It was good to see the credit score rise higher by 63 points. I did not know that by switching the balances of my credit card accounts around that I would get that much of a change in my credit score.

I absolutely love the fact that I can check on my credit score for free and it doesn't reflect a credit inquiry on my credit report. Thank you so much for all the information this site provides. Keep up the good work.

I've subscribed to Credit Sesame for quite some time now and am pleased with the accuracy of my credit score and information available to me to apply for credit cards. Enjoy the free credit score also because there are so many things in life that don't fit into my budge.

Easy to enroll. Fast. Informative. Seems very good. Free service with benefits. I cannot imagine any negatives to being a part of this service. This would allow changes to be seen in one's credit. It appears to be a good opportunity to monitor credit. Would suggest to people.

I was pleased to find that my credit score increased due to Credit Sesame finding my credit card account with AMEX, but am still waiting for my account with Capital One Auto Loans to be recognized, especially since I've already made a payment to them.

I found Credit Sesame on one of those "19 financial things you should do before you turn 50" sites. I was skeptical but signed up anyway. I was please with the ease of looking through the tabs at the various categories. Plus, being able to see the negative areas that brought my score down...was helpful. I'm actually going to call the store where I had a late payment to see if they will remove it. The site is a bit heavy on pushing credit card offers but I understand: nothing is free! Thanks.

I got an email reminder about my updated credit score. And under recommendations, the site showed what steps I could take to undertake to further improve my credit profile. One of which I followed through on. Credit Sesame has a plethora of VERY useful information. Which I have found to be invaluable. There are many avenues to improve/upgrade your credit profile/situation. Every time I learn something new about credit and it's impact & influence on our lives. Thank You Credit Sesame. A very thankful and loyal user...
