0 of 10,000 beta spots left.

No arguing in the wiki.

FYI - uses Yodlee for backend (like mint used to, before getting acquired by intuit)

I've never heard of Credit Karma. Are they safe/reliable?
A: Yes, I have been using them for over a year from a prior free deal. Great monitoring, never had any troubles.

I have an account in BCU baxter credit union and they this for free. So everyone who has BCU account can get this for free without worrying abour number spots left. vijju

So, basically this is like Mint.com?

I'm not really seeing the value-added in doing this. I don't really like the idea of doing this with a Mint or CreditKarma. If it were like AMEX, I'd be a little more likely to do this.

FYI you apparently can't sign up for the beta if you already have an account with them (strange approach, IMO). EDIT: nm, I see the link for existing account holders now.

Oh well, maybe for the best. I like credit karma, but exposing all my financial account info to a product with "beta" in its name may not be the wisest financial move to start with Wink

I have never used Mint.com, but I have had an account with CreditKarma for years. This is awesome for me since I am always forgetting my CC logins...I can't count how many times I have been locked out of my accounts..LMAO

Log into your account and on your dashboard you will see if you scroll down "View Your Transaction History.Connect your online accounts to view your recent transactions right here on Credit Karma."
It should work.

I guess. I've never had a problem with CC logins, so I've never worried about that aspect (plus you can always have them resend to your e-mail on file as long as you enter the correct security information).

The issue I have with these all-in-one finance sites is that if that one falls, all the rest of your financial information will be available which makes it much more of a headache if someone hacks into that site. And you're trading off convenience for a much greater chance of financial exploitation which for me isn't worth it.

But to each their own.

Looks alright. Doesn't have options like setting budgets or savings goals like Mint. Looks nice though, going to play around with it. We'll see if I'm still using this in a month. Thanks.

Yeah, I figured it & updated my post a minute before your post, but you probably hadn't refreshed. Thanks.

A bit scared that a third party site (no matter how reputable) has ALL my CC logins... especially after seeing that Twitter is so unsecured, what happens if Credit Karma is compromised?
