Credit Report for free?

Just wondering if anyone can give me some suggestions on what site to use to get our credit report/score for free. I have head you can get if free annually. Just wondering what site is the best to use.

Yes, in the US anyway, by law you are supposed to be able to receive a credit report once a year for free. You should not have to pay anything or purchase membership. I did this some years ago, though I can't remember which site it was. This might have been it:

Can anyone confirm?

Also, if your credit card application (or something along that line) was turned down, you can also get a credit report for free, or at least that is my understanding.

Yep, I used that site to get all three credit reports for my H and myself earlier this month.

There is also a site where you can get your FICO score for free.
