Starting today, some lenders will allow their customers to see actual FICO credit scores for free, using "FICO Score Open Access". Barclay's and First National Bank of Omaha appear to be the first lenders to use the program, but FICO says it is in talks with other lenders.

Here's the article and couple of excerpts: http://money.cnn.com/2013/11/04/pf/fico-scores/index.html?ii...

FICO (FICO) announced Monday that it plans to allow any lender using FICO scores to make the scores available to consumers for free through a program called FICO Score Open Access. Barclaycard US and First Bankcard (the credit card business of First National Bank of Omaha) are the first to sign on, with free scores being made available to credit card customers starting today.

FICO is already in talks with additional lenders, and it expects at least 25 million customers to have access to free scores by the end of the year.
