Sears offers customers a peek at their credit scores

Sears is unveiling a new payment option for customers: an enhanced Sears credit card.

Giving their branded store card a facelift, Sears says it added more retail value to carrying a Sears card.

One of the most noteworthy features: access to your credit score.

Sears is the first major retailer to offer its cardholders a free credit score. Susan Ehrlich, president of Sears Financial Services, Sears Holdings, said "customers can review their credit score for free at any time."
