Since both my Barclaycard Arrival World Mastercard and CreditKarma.com now both offer free credit scores based on my TransUnion credit report, I thought it would be interesting to track both of them over time and see how well they correlate with each other. The Barclaycard offers a FICO® score, while CreditKarma offers a “TransUnion® New Account Score”. Both are on a 300-850 point scale where higher means more creditworthy.
The date provided is the observation date when I check each site. Neither scores update daily so they may pull credit report info on slightly different dates. However, over time they should track closely.
