Your credit score has a huge impact on your ability to take out a mortgage, buy a car, and even get approved for a credit card.

The good news is, with the help of a service called Borrowell, checking your credit score is fast, simple, and totally free.

Knowledge is power

In just 3 minutes Borrowell will show you your Equifax credit score and credit report.

You can access your credit information anytime, and Borrowell updates it every month so you can easily keep track of your progress.

Keeping an eye on how your credit score changes from month to month will provide valuable insight into your spending habits.

Just ask Colleen, a Borrowell user since 2018.

“I have been more conscious of my spending, how I pay, and what I am able to afford,” she says. “Because of this free service I have been able to monitor and improve my credit score.”

Borrowell helped Colleen turn her credit score around, and it can do the same for you.

Expert advice to help boost your score

In addition to providing your credit score, Borrowell also offers free tips and educational materials to teach you how to improve it.

By using these resources, many Borrowell users have seen their credit score jump up by hundreds of points.

Take Oswald, for example.

“I followed their advice and went from a 560 to a 680 in a few months,” he says.

Oswald also took advantage of Borrowell’s personalized product recommendations, which show you the best offers on financial products like loans and credit cards.

“I got a recommendation for a LOC and… was approved at a decent interest rate,” he says. “Highly recommended.”

No more costly mistakes

Monitoring your credit with Borrowell will also put an end to missed payments, which can seriously affect your credit rating.

“[Borrowell] helped me [learn] about collections I had that I didn’t even know about,” says Gabriel, a Borrowell user.

It’s not always easy to keep track of multiple bills each month, and if one happens to slip through the cracks it could cause your credit score to drop by a lot.

But, thanks to Borrowell, your days of worrying about unpaid bills are over.

Changing your credit score could change your life

Don’t put off checking your credit score a minute longer – the sooner you know where you stand, the easier it will be to get back on track.

If your credit could use a boost, or even if you’re just curious, sign up for Borrowell today. It’s totally free, and it only takes a few minutes to get started.
