3 Reasons Why You Should Monitor Your Credit Score

Knowing your credit score is important. But what’s even more important than simply knowing your score? Monitoring your credit score over time! Our data shows that Borrowell customers who frequently monitor their credit score actually improve their score by more points than customers who don’t.

This is just one of the reasons Borrowell has introduced free weekly credit score monitoring. This means that you can sign up for Borrowell, for free, and receive a weekly refreshed score and an email to let you know how you’re doing.

Here are a few more reasons why it’s beneficial for you to monitor your credit score!

Monitoring your score can help you improve your score

We found that customers who monitor their score saw greater improvements in their score than those who only checked once in a while. We also found that customers with lower credit scores were the ones that increased their scores the most.

2. Monitoring your credit score can help you save money

Now we know monitoring your credit score can help you improve it, which is great news! Having a high credit score can actually help you save money in many ways.

A high score gives you access to better credit cards, better mortgage and insurance rates, and better interest rates on a car loan or on a personal loan. The better your score, the more options you have available to you to help you save.

3. Monitoring your credit score with Borrowell is free, easy, and only takes 3 minutes

Monitoring your credit score with Borrowell is completely free. It’s also simple and only takes 3 minutes to sign up. Once you get your free credit score, we’ll update it every week so you can monitor your score and save money.
