¹The credit scores provided under the offers described here use the Equifax Credit Score, which is a proprietary credit model developed by Equifax. The Equifax Credit Score and 3-Bureau scores are each based on the Equifax Credit Score model, but calculated using the information in your Equifax, Experian and TransUnion credit files. The Equifax Credit Score is intended for your own educational use. It is also commercially available to third parties along with numerous other credit scores and models in the marketplace. Please keep in mind third parties are likely to use a different score when evaluating your creditworthiness. Also, third parties will take into consideration items other than your credit score or information found in your credit file, such as your income.

²The Automatic Fraud Alert feature is made available to consumers by Equifax Information Services LLC and fulfilled on its behalf by Equifax Consumer Services LLC.

³Equifax Credit Report Control™ is only available while you have a current subscription to Equifax Complete Premier. Locking your credit file with Equifax Credit Report Control will prevent access to your Equifax credit file by certain third parties, such as credit grantors or other companies and agencies. Credit Report Control will not prevent access to your credit file at any other credit reporting agency, and will not prevent access to your Equifax credit file by companies like Equifax Personal Solutions which provide you with access to your credit report or credit score or monitor your credit file; Federal, state and local government agencies; companies reviewing your application for employment; companies that have a current account or relationship with you, and collection agencies acting on behalf of those whom you owe; for fraud detection and prevention purposes; and companies that wish to make pre-approved offers of credit or insurance to you. To opt out of such pre-approved offers, visit www.optoutprescreen.com/.

About the Equifax Family Money Matters Video Contest

Welcome to the Equifax Family Money Matters Video Contest.

Money is a family affair. Whether you’re spending it, saving it, or investing it, including your family in money management discussions will help you make smarter financial decisions.

We want to know how your family deals with money matters.

  • How do you plan your budget to fit the needs of your household?
  • What do you do around the house every day to save money?
  • How do you teach your children about the value of money?

Create a video to share your Family Money Matters story. If you’re a family of four, a single parent, or learning how to manage a household of one, we want to hear tips and tricks for organizing and managing your family’s finances.

Get creative and show us your best tips for managing your family’s money at home, at the store, on vacation, and anywhere else you spend money.
