One suggestion of something that I do. Rather than get all three at one time once a year, I'll rotate them and get just one of them every 4 months (ie. Equifax in June, Trans Union in October, Experian in February).

Most of the time the info is pretty much the same on each of the three reports, so it's more of a checkup every 4 months to see if something new has popped up. Better to have a chance at catching something in 4 month intervals rather than waiting a whole year to find out something got stuck in there 9 months before.
