FICO Credit Scores From All Three Credit Bureaus Now Available To U.S. Consumers Exclusively At

SAN JOSE, Calif., June 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- FICO (NYSE:FICO), creator of the consumer credit score most used by lenders, today announced that U.S. consumers can now obtain their FICO ® Scores based on credit data from Experian, Equifax and TransUnion at a single location – This makes the definitive destination for consumers to get the information and products they need to better understand their credit and manage their financial health.


"For the first time in years, consumers can obtain their FICO Scores and credit reports from all three major U.S. credit bureaus," said Geoff Smith, vice president of "This is important because many lenders use multiple credit reports and FICO Scores in credit decisions."

While lenders consider different kinds of information when making lending decisions, this information almost always includes a credit report and FICO Score. A credit report is a history of a consumer's credit activity, while the FICO Score provides an assessment of the information in the credit report in order to predict how well a consumer will handle credit in the future. Each FICO Score from is accompanied by a credit report from the corresponding credit bureau and an explanation of the credit information that had the greatest impact on the score.

"Consumer Action is pleased that the FICO Score based on Experian data will be available to consumers at," said Linda Sherry, director of national priorities for the 42-year old nonprofit consumer education and advocacy organization. "Consumers need to know their FICO Scores from all three national credit bureaus because lenders use all three to determine consumers' creditworthiness and all three scores, when viewed together, give consumers the best indication of their overall credit history and current potential as borrowers."

" Checking your FICO Score regularly is a savvy financial practice," Smith noted.  "It's part of being an educated and informed consumer, and taking control of your financial life.  Just as you should periodically check your credit report from each of the three bureaus for accuracy, you should also monitor your FICO Score for unexpected changes.  A strong FICO Score will save you money by helping you secure the best available rates when applying for credit."

"This offering improves the choice consumers have when buying credit information to monitor their credit profiles or decide whether to apply for a new loan," said CEB TowerGroup Senior Research Director Craig Focardi. "This is especially important for consumers because when consumers apply for mortgages, their lenders also use the FICO Score from each major credit bureau."
