This is incredibly useful for consolidating all transactions in one place to review them without having to login to multiple banks each month.

Sounds just like Mint:

I've used Mint for awhile and they have worked out alot of the kinks that comes with connecting with multiple bank/CC accounts.

Where does score come from? It isn't the actual FICO score...and credit bureaus mostly update once a month...so checking your bank/credit card data directly is more accurate than using info from the credit report.
The credit report information comes from TransUnion. By entering your account credentials, we also grab data directly from your bank. Then we match the two and look for anomalies.

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?
Hopefully more banks/cards will go with the "access code" model, like Capital One 360 (formerly ING Direct) has. They issue you some large numeric code to give sites like Mint access to your balances and transactions without the ability to log in normally and do anything.

I still have at least 3-4 accounts that Mint can't connect to. I haven't found the site to be particularly useful.

To the people worried about giving out their credit card login details, I mean in the end what could someone really do with that? If I log into a credit card site, all I can really do is pay my bill. If someone else wants to do that for me, be my guest. I guess they could also see how much I owe on a card, but it's not like you can make a transaction or anything. Unless I'm just dumb.

I use roboform to store my CC info, logins, pay bills, etc. It's pretty much just one-click login, click pay bill, and then click autofill to populate the Name, address, CC info, etc. fields. Takes me about ~20 seconds or so to pay each bill.

Also, it was posted a while back, but seemed to of been put on the backburner...Roboform has a deal for college students (or anyone with an .edu email) for 4 years for $20. It's normally $20 a year for the pro version. There's a free version available too I believe, but doesn't store as many logins, profiles, etc.

Mint is still currently better, but seems to have lost it a lot of its developer support.

I wouldn't mind Credit Karma beating out Mint, but they still have a lot of limitations to overcome.

The real value is in the data-mining of your credit card purchases. That is worth a RIDICULOUS amount to people. You might be surprised.

Will this be a good way to check my credit score before applying for a new card? I just got a new job and will be travelling 30-40% of the time and want to open up a new card specifically for those business uses. I also don't want to have to remember to unsubscribe from a free online service in order to get my score checked.

I mistakenly removed my account from the site a while back and now regret doing so as Credit Karma will not let me activate my account again. Word of advice to everyone: Don't cancel account unless you plan on never coming back again.

We won't ever charge for our service. That is something we strongly believe in.

I more or less agree with you, but they could potentially open virtual CCs from some banks' websites and charge things to you that way.

I haven't signed up for this beta, but I've been using CK for quite a while. I generally update my score every morning, but it appears they haven't updated their data for me since last month. Most of my CCs close around the 1st of the month, and shortly thereafter I'll see a slight update due to changes in my balances, etc., and my average age of open credit will increase by one month every month. This month, my vantage score had a slight change, but my CK score hasn't and my AAOC hasn't incremented since last month. My "last updated" says today, but the data itself seems old.

So I see CreditKarma grabs a credit report from TransUnion. Does that mean that they use my one free credit report per year from them, or can I still get a free one directly from their site as well? Because I rotate getting my free credit report (one free per year from each one) from TransUnion, Equifax, and Experian to every 4 months to keep a gauge on everything.

Also, is everything offered up front free from CreditKarma (ie. no hidden charges or shady business upselling tactics)? I see there is a free credit score, which is something that the three credit bureaus charge for.
