This week’s Your Take will be a little different, it’s going to be a poll (though you are still welcome to leave comments!).
A few weeks ago I talked about the FICO score credit range . In that post, I referenced a statistic published by FICO that said 58% of all FICO credit scores were above 750. Here’s the chart of score distribution:
I’ve always believed that readers of personal finance blogs are, by definition, savvier about personal finance than the average bloke on the street. Since a personal finance reader is more interested in personal finance, it stands to reason that they would have a better handle on their finances. So, the question I pose to you today will in fact be the first poll in Bargaineering.com history:
If you don’t know your FICO credit score, you can use myFICO ScoreWatch  (myFICO ScoreWatch review) or one of these free FICO credit score  trials to find out what it is. If you don’t want to deal with the trials, you can always try one of these FICO credit score estimators  too (My vote goes to Credit Karma  because it’s free).
Whatever you use, I’m curious to see how our distribution looks compared to the “national average.”
