Lifehacker - Free credit report services are often rife with scams, but Credit Karma is the real deal (I'm a user of the service, I don't pay a cent for it, and I'm happy.) The company previously offered credit reports on a monthly basis, and refreshed your TransUnion credit score and VantageScore (along with your overall account data) every week. Now they've partnered with TransUnion to do a weekly soft inquiry on your full report (meaning it won't actually ding your credit.) You'll get an updated full report with activity and balances, alerts for new accounts or major changes, and contextual information to help you understand what the whole thing means.
