Most people have heard of Credit Karma before, but most people don't know how to use Credit Karma to increase their credit score. By fully taking advantage of Credit Karma, you can significantly boost your credit score and in turn, save tens of thousands of dollars throughout your life.
Over the last 3 years, I've been able to use Credit Karma to build my credit score from zero to over 800! In this video, I'll break down exactly how I did it and how you can do the same.
One complaint that many people have with Credit Karma is that the credit scores shown are inaccurate and that you're better off using a service like MyFICO. This is incorrect, and the credit scores on Credit Karma are in fact accurate.
However, Credit Karma calculates a VantageScore as opposed to a FICO score. These are two different formulas used to calculate a credit score and both use the 300 - 850 scale. Most lenders will typically pulla FICO score when you're applying for a loan, but some will also use a FICO score.
Fortunately, both scoring models use the same credit score criteria, so when you improve one, you're likely also improving the other. This is why when you apply for a loan or credit card and compare the credit score you get from the bank with your Credit Karma credit score, there may be some differences.
This is not going to be a big deal for most people as the scores will likely be within a few points of each other. Plus Credit Karma is free, which is a big plus over services like MyFICO.
