Should I join a monitoring service when I buy my credit reports?
Monitoring services can be an excellent complement to your credit repair program if you feel comfortable spending the extra money each month. If the extra cost of the monitoring service will strain your budget we would rather see you save the money and be comfortable paying your bills on time! If this is the case we will send you a link to an excellent discounted tri-merged report that you can purchase without committing to any additional credit bureau services, such as credit monitoring.
Here are some of the benefits of having a monitoring service, along with a reasonable case for not getting it. You can decide.
A monitoring service can send you an email every time there is a material change to your credit report. This can be exciting while you are in our credit repair program as you will get email alerts whenever an account is deleted. And if you have ever had any identity theft concerns, you will also have the comfort of knowing when there is an inquiry or new account.
During the Credit Repair Process
On the other hand, while you are in our credit repair program you will be getting regular updates from the credit bureaus in response to our disputes. These updates will show all of the results of our efforts including deletions and corrections. Many of the credit bureau updates will include new credit reports as well. In other words while you are in our credit repair program you will have a pretty good handle on all of the activity that is taking place on your credit report. Given this fact, you may reasonably decide to postpone joining a monitoring service, perhaps reconsidering it again when you complete your credit repair process.
