It didn’t take long for Intuit to start ruining a great product. They’ve begun upselling Mint.com customers to two “free” credit report sites that are anything but. UPDATE: Turns out Mint was already doing this pre-Intuit. Bully for them.
One lady reports that she started to get inexplicable credit card charges from Creditreport.com. After speaking to 12 different reps, she reached a supervisor who threatened to sue her because she had signed a contract. When she asked for the contract to be mailed to her, the supervisor said, they “couldn’t” print it out, they could only email it. To which the lady responded, “So how exactly is this going to hold up in court? What are you going to do, Email the judge?” Oh snap. Eventually, after a little more hassle, they canceled her account. Someone should have told her that the only place to go to for a free, no strings, no monthly fee access to your credit report is annualcreditreport.com.
