Capital One Review: CreditWise

CreditWise from Capital One is a tool that lets customers of the bank see their credit score for free, and it’s updated weekly.

This program also shows account holders the primary factors impacting their credit, and the Credit Simulator provides a look at how individual decisions could affect that score.

For Capital One customers using CreditWise, their credit score won’t be negatively affected, and it’s a free service which doesn’t require clients of the bank to enter their credit card number to receive their information.

You can also see increases or dips in your credit score on a monthly basis and learn how to improve your score, all with the use of CreditWise.
