Hi Joel!

Yep, CreditKarma definitely has their own mysterious way of tossing out numbers which while representative, are definitely not definitive and accurate scores. Of course, in the big picture, it probably makes little difference.

I get my score from Experian which wants to charge me $15/month for the privilege. What I do is call them each year to cancel and they then offer me the service for $7/mo if I don't cancel. Still, really an unnecessary expense, but I do like keeping a look at my numbers.
