This time of year, when consumers are beginning to contemplate what their New Year’s Resolutions will be, NationalCreditReport.com, a leader in credit report, credit score and credit monitoring services, reminds consumers that if their resolution involves their finances, a great first step is for them to check their credit report.

“Vowing to manage one’s finances better in the New Year could be an appropriate resolution for almost anybody,” said Samuel S. Ambrose, Vice President of Marketing and Operations of NationalCreditReport.com. “A consumer can get a bird’s eye view of what their finances look like simply by checking their credit report since it contains such a wide variety of important elements that they may need to address in 2011.” Ambrose adds that checking their credit report is a must-do if their resolution is specifically raising their credit score.

One’s credit score, contained in most credit reports, is calculated by the 3 major credit bureaus (Experian™, Equifax™, and TransUnion™) by collecting information such as bill payment trends, outstanding debt and number of open accounts from the consumer’s lenders and creditors. Ambrose notes that consumers should also be aware that the 3 major credit bureaus do not all report the same information so it is wise to see a report from each of them. Because this score affects whether or not funding is granted to the consumer, having a good credit score is very important.

According to Ambrose, by checking their credit report, a consumer will see a treasure trove of financial information. Ambrose advises consumers to obtain the report prior to beginning the task of their financial resolution to get a head-start on it.

At the company’s website, http://www.nationalcreditreport.com, consumers can sign-up for a free credit score and a free, seven-day trial of its Triple Safeguard Credit Monitoring™ service. The company also offers consumers the opportunity to purchase their credit report and score for one low price with “no strings attached.” Interested customers can visit http://www.nationalcreditreport.com/nostringsoffer to buy their credit report and score from 1 or all 3 major credit bureaus without being enrolled in a credit monitoring service.
