I shamelessly pimped my TV appearance in my post “Arsenio Says Bad Credit = Soul”, as a way to tell you how to get your free FICO score.
15 Point Drop – Two years ago, I got my free FICO from myfico.com. Last time I had 798 at EquiFax. This time I had 783. Why the 15 point drop? Over those two years, I refinanced two properties and got TWELVE new credit cards. I blame recent credit inquiries. 10 of the 12 new cards were obtained in the past six months, and got me almost 400,000 bonus points/miles.
What can I say? I am a rewards whore-der. My score will come back up soon.
