Find out what your credit report says about you

Transc​​ript

The animated video opens with a man wearing a hockey jersey who comes back home. He starts a conversion with a woman who is putting some order in the living room. 

Man: Listen to this! 

Woman: Uh huh… 

Man: A guy in my hockey team went for a car loan, and they turned him down. Poor credit they said!

Woman: Okay… 

Man: See… he never checked his credit report and didn’t know how SUPER important it is… 

Woman: Seriously?

Man: Uh huh… He had no idea that it can determine whether or not you qualify for a loan, and even what the interest rate will be. 

Woman: Wait! So he never checked to see if there were mistakes or if his information was out of date BEFORE he applied for the loan?  

Man: Nope! 

Woman: Did you tell him it’s free by mail… and that we check ours every year, and he should too?  

Man: Sure did!! I told the whole team!!

Dog, with air horn: HONK!
