Hello lawandorder,

The cheapest option available to obtain your fico score is by requesting your free annual credit report at

Each year you are entitled to a free copy of your credit report from each of the 3 major credit bureaus - Equifax, Experian and TransUnion. When requesting your credit reports through that website, you will also be given the opportunity to purchase your fico score for a one time fee, which as of last year was $9.95. The fee may have increased, but it is a one time charge only.

You can request a free credit report from each of the 3 credit bureaus, although generally they should be showing the same information. However, you would really only need to request your fico score from one of the 3 bureaus, as your credit score should be very close to the same with each of them.

Thank you lawandorder.
