Recent survey data indicates many Americans want to better understand credit
freecreditscore.com's new Score Planner™ can help improve that understanding

COSTA MESA, Calif., Jan. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- freecreditscore.com™ today announced the findings of a recent survey that polled Americans about their understanding of credit scores and the actions that impact those scores. According to the survey, most respondents (83 percent) have checked their credit scores; however, nearly half of the respondents (42 percent) want to improve credit scores but don't know how.

"The survey is an eye-opener to the fact that many people think about credit on a regular basis but don't feel empowered to take control of their credit scores," said Ken Chaplin, senior vice president of marketing for freecreditscore.com. "We've enhanced the freecreditscore.com website and launched our new, free Score Planner™ tool to remove the mystery around credit scores, and help members and nonmembers alike take steps to better understand how their actions impact their credit score."

Additional findings from the survey provide insights into credit awareness and credit usage. Sixty-five percent of respondents indicated that they consider their credit score when engaging in credit-related activities such as maxing out a card, applying for a new card or skipping a payment. When it comes to gender and credit, women (68 percent) are more likely than men (61 percent) to consider their credit score before making credit usage decisions.

Maintaining credit scores takes dedication, time and planning; the results can be invaluable. A few simple tips from freecreditscore.com are well worth considering:

  • Monitor credit scores throughout the year. More than one-quarter (28 percent) of survey respondents have never checked their credit scores, primarily because they don't see a need. That's a risky approach when lenders use credit scores to gauge an individual's financial reliability. Ignoring one's credit score my lead to an unpleasant surprise when making a large purchase or applying for a loan.  
  • Utilize online tools to stay on plan. Consumers have a variety of online tools at their fingertips that can help them take control of personal finances. The patented freecreditscore.com Score Planner, which is available to both members and nonmembers, is unique in that it shows consumers what actions can impact credit scores and by how much. This information can help them make more informed financial decisions.  
  • If in doubt, check it out. Monitor your financial statements regularly, and if something doesn't look right, take action immediately. Great credit takes time to establish but can be unraveled quickly by identity theft. Keeping a close eye on financial statements and taking action if you see something amiss can help you protect your credit and your identity.
