Your credit score affects everything from the interest rate you get on a loan to whether a landlord is willing to rent you an apartment. Money gives you a year of free access to tools that let you monitor your credit score. You can also receive a free credit report so you can see just where that score comes from.
If you use Microsoft Money Plus Premium or Home & Business, you receive a free one-time credit report and 12 months of free credit monitoring. After you've signed up, you can regularly monitor your up-to-date credit scores. (Valid for new Experian customers only.)
