I have reviewed both Credit Sesame and Credit Karma in the past and both are awesome and are a free, no strings attached way to get your credit score every month!
You can read my prior in-depth reviews for both sites here.
If you haven’t already signed up, the $250 giveaway is certainly a nice added bonus, but I would recommend signing up regardless because as Frugal Travel Guy says, “Your Credit Is Your Most Important Asset”!
I am already signed up so I am not eligible, not to mention I have never won an online giveaway in my life, however in the past when I have posted links to free contests and giveaways, a few lucky FFU Readers have won stuff.
So in the event that any lucky FFU Reader wins the $250 Giveaway from Credit Sesame, I will throw in $250 of my own money for a grand total of $500.
If you aren’t familiar with MyPoints it is like a free online shopping portal / email promotion site. Basically you earn MyPoints for clicking on links, signing up for free services, buying things, etc. They do send you annoying emails but after 30 days, as it says in the fine print, you can close your account.
I had joined MyPoints years ago through a similar United promotion, got my miles, and then stopped using MyPoints.
Coincidentally, this afternoon when I was looking to renew my subscription to Time Out Chicago, I went to Evreward.com to check to see if any sites had bonuses for Magazines.com purchase and although I’m sure it is a glitch, it is showing that Magazines.com via MyPoints is earning 500 points per $1 spent or 365% cashback.
I’ve already done this United promotion, so I am not eligible and couldn’t log into MyPoints to confirm this offer of 500 points per $1 spent, but if anyone signs up, please let us know if this is actually the offer on MyPoints!
If you are a frequent reader of FFU, you know that I love online travel and financial tools!
Not only do they make my life substantially easier, but they can turn boring subjects like tracking all your different financial accounts or different frequent flyer accounts, into something not so dull.
The current shortlist of my favorite travel and financial tools include:
