Installed the Bank of America App; Got A New Source for A Free TransUnion® FICO® Credit Score.

Free TransUnion® FICO® Credit Score.

Free TransUnion® FICO®
Credit Score.
I just installed the Bank of America (BofA) App on my "goto" mobile devices, and was very pleased to discover that BofA offers free access to my TransUnion® FICO® credit score.

The free score that I used to check @ Citi® no longer works -- and I have no idea why -- so this is a good thing.

Installation was easy on my iPad 4 Mini and my iPhone 7 Plus.  I didn't bother installing the app on my old Samsung phones because I only use them as backups and for some gaming; they are both way too slow anyway. And I can't stand slow machines.

So my FICO score is 721, as of March 23, 2022.  I thought  my score would be lower, since I've been going through some very major life changes lately... And big changes tend to be expensive.

I still use Credit Karma too; in my life, in general, I like to use as many free resources as possible. One reason for this is to monitor things for consistency.
