Greenfield Savings Bank Offers Free Credit Scores and Credit Reports Service to Customers
April 26, 2018
To help customers monitor their credit, Greenfield Savings Bank is now offering free credit scores and credit reports to its account customers through GSB Online Banking and the GSB Mobile Banking App. The new service, called the GSB CreditCenter, allows customers to view their credit score and to review and monitor their credit reports, as often as they want without affecting their credit.
The GSB CreditCenter offers additional services including credit report activity alerts and a financial education section that includes information on how to help improve your credit score, manage your finances and more. There is no fee for the service and therefore, no credit card is required when registering.
“This is a premium service that we are offering free to allow our customers to monitor their credit information without the monthly fees charged by many others companies,” said Denise Coyne, Chief Operating Officer and Executive Vice President of the Greenfield Savings Bank. “Monitoring your credit report and credit score is very important and can protect you from errors and fraud. Your credit score affects not only your ability to borrow money, but in many cases the interest rates that you are charged. Viewing credit scores on a regular basis can also help motivate people to be more aware of their credit activity and take actions that can improve their scores.”
