How to Use Credit Karma [Video]

It’s no secret I’m a fan of Credit Karma [3], but I’m hardly alone in the world of personal finance bloggers. Plenty of people enjoy their service and part of the reason has to do with how they were first to market with a monitoring system. Since then, companies like Credit Sesame (also a great company with a great service, I recommend both) have also appeared offering scores and services from different bureaus, but Credit Karma was first – that’s probably why people always think of them first.

At a minimum, I use Credit Karma as part of my DIY identify theft protection system [4], but the service has plenty of other bells and whistles worth your attention. I thought I’d put together a few short videos (in shiny HD!) explaining how to use the other features of Credit Karma’s website. In this case, it’s their Score Center and their Report Card & Credit Simulator. Be sure to watch the videos in full screen HD if possible.

(it’s been a while since I did a video and I did these in one take… so be kind! :))
