My Thoughts on Quizzle
Quizzle asked quite a few more questions than the other free credit score websites such as Credit Sesame and Credit Karma. There were lots of questions about my home purchase price, amount of mortgage, my income, and my savings. They don't need this information for my free credit score, they want it so they can build advertisements for me. There was no way to skip entering this information.
While you're filling out your information to get your free credit score from Quizzle, you'll see some annoying pop-ups. These slowed down the sign-up process for me. While I appreciate the extra information, I would rather click a button if I wanted to see it instead of them showing up by default.
My free credit score and credit report was filled with advertisements which are presented in a way to "help" me. I found it a little difficult to tell the difference between the information I wanted to see and the advertisements.
Quizzle makes the bottom of my list for free credit scores and I'd rather use one of the other free services.
