Free Monthly Credit Score - Credit Sesame and Credit Karma

Credit Sesame is a free ways to keep on top of your credit score and all of your expenses.  They update your score every month for free. (Thanks for the referral too :)

When you sign up they will show you all the debt you have on each of your credit cards.  They will also show you how much you owe on your mortgage and your monthly payments.  They will analyze all that information for you and offer advice on how you could get your credit score higher and get your debt lower.

They make money if you use their partners to lower you debt load but if you are just using it to monitor your credit picture and score you can use it for free.  In fact, they never ask for your credit card when you sign up.

You can also get a free annual credit report from the three credit bureaus (ie - 3 a year, one from each bureau).
