Credit Sesame makes it easy to understand what is affecting your credit both positively and negatively and it gives you tips for improving your score. Great product, information, easy to use, extremely useful and actionable, intuitive, and necessary if you are looking to build your credit in a hurry.

Regular update... much to my surprise! Went to check on my credit *again* and lo and behold it went fro 680 or so to 725! Awesome sauce with a side of Filet Mignon! What can I say but thank-you; I have been striving for a better credit score for some time, but this as a free service is truly fabulous!

This was my first time using Credit Sesame. I tried Credit Karma, but they wanted a credit card saying this was a 7 day free trial. Not what I wanted. Credit Sesame was easy to use, quick and above all did not want a CC #. I will certainly recommend them to my friends.

I am very impressed with the overall layout and functionality of platform, as well as, the accuracy of the data extracted from my personal records. I was very skeptical initially prior to signing up as a customer, but once I did it I was blown away. This information will help me focus 100% better on my finances and will certainly help me improve my credit score. The recommendations and ease of use is certainly a welcome change also. Great job!

I enjoyed looking up my credit score. Now I can improve the number. Being a senior I need help understanding how all this stuff works. You give me the opportunity to check my number in the privacy at home. I will need to buy a car soon, this will help me get to the goal.

I have ALWAYS like to TALK TO A LIVE PERSON when necessary. You do not have one available. WHY IS THAT?? Overall, I am okay for now with signing up but, I am skeptical of you not having a phone number. E-mails sometimes takes about 2 to 3 business days to get back to a person. That is not good. Thanks.

I believe that granting free access to their credit report leads to a better (if not the best) opportunity for one to develop the motivation for staying in control of credit history. I pay my bills. I challenge errors and criticize dilatory updates for unpaid balances in my credit record.

I had this hidden fear of my credit score. Using Credit Sesame was one of the best decisions I could have made. I was approved for a credit card. I learned I had a good credit score. Thanks Credit Sesame.

Essentially you pay $25.00 for all three credit bureaus, you can see who/ if/ when anyone reported any derogatory information on your account. A 1-800 number is given for you to call to help with any kind of derogatory information, presumably working with people behind said 1-800 number will also cost money.

It's free and accurate. I know they only look at making the payments on time but don't take into consideration you pay in full rather than minimum. I think that should be in the equation. The only reason I carry a balance is I use cards to purchase most everything as I get cash back for charging.

I check my credit score daily, and CreditSesame.com is one of the best ways to keep tabs consistently. I can look at the report which presents the credit score as it changes according to how healthy or even shaky my finances look. There are various tabs which presents a complete picture of what a member's financial health might look like, and the website provides suggestions on how to improve one's credit score.

Thank you for the recommendations to improve my overall credit score. The experience was favorable and I was able to complete an application for a new credit card that was accepted. Hopefully the work that I am doing will improve my credit score per your recommendations.

Being a first time user and not a computer person I found it reasonably easy. Next time it will probably be a 5 star experience for me. I needed a little help from my oldest son. I feel would recommend this site over Credit Karma.

When I straight out trying to fix my credit I knew nothing about it I'm almost to the goal I want. Without Id be lost. Love this site. Easy to use in my opinion. Better than Credit Karma and you don't have 2 wast a dollar to look at your score. You also can get identity portion free or pay to keep off dark net.

I clicked on a site on Credit Sesame that promised it would not affect my credit score. It was supposed to be just checking rates on loans. Now one of the companies emailed me to inform me I was turned down for a loan that I didn’t apply for. If this shows up on my credit report, I will write bad reviews on every available site, to warn others of the hazards of visiting on Credit Sesame. I’ll do it every day because they lied when they told me it wouldn’t affect my credit score.

Credit Sesame is on top of their game. Very highly recommended, they help me learn how to improve my credit and use it in a responsible way which is very important when someone wants to apply for a mortgage...

I had heard about Credit Sesame for a while but never looked into it before. Everyone said it was free??? Must have missed that window because even for one report it's asking me to pay $10. Not sure why the false advertising but I won't be using that site. I'll stick with Credit Karma.

Credit Sesame response

Thank you for the feedback. Credit Sesame is free. We offer monthly credit score, credit data and daily credit monitoring all for free. We do offer some services that Credit Karma doesn't offer that are paid such as 3 bureau reports and scores and full ID theft protection. You are not under any obligation to sign up for any of our paid services. It's just an option. Thanks for trying us out.

I liked that they keep me abreast of my credit worthiness, and what I need to do to correct my situation. You just keep me aware of what I need to do to maintain. I'm too old to finally be caring about credit for some that was never was on my mind.
