Traveling internationally? Through February 15, 2015, you'll get free Wi-Fi when in London if you have…
You can get a free FICO if you have a Barclays credit card.
Just sign into your account to get your TransUnion FICO score for free.
Yep, there’s no cost. You don’t have to pay anything. No dinero required!
Barclays is offering access to your FICO score for Barclays Arrival card (both the annual fee version and no annual fee version) along with several of their other cards.
Since I don’t have the Arrivals card, I thought I was out of luck. Until I saw this thread on Flyertalk.
If you have the Barclays US Airways card or the Lufthansa card, you can still get your FICO score for free by using a little workaround…
3 Easy Steps To Get Your Free FICO Score
1. Sign into your Barclays account using this url – https://www.barclaycardus.com/servicing/score.
(The only difference between this url and the normal one you’d use is the “/score” at the end.
If you “forget” to use the special url, after you’ve logged into your account the “real” way, just remove everything after “/servicing” and replace with “/score.”
How safe is this url you ask? I have no idea but I used a different computer to log in just in case. Because I’m paranoid like that.
2. Waive your rights and sign away your first born.
Or simply agree to the terms by checking the box and accepting.
3. Viola, your free FICO score will be revealed.
Have you gotten your free FICO Score yet?
