You've seen those ads for subscription websites that let you check your credit score, but haven't bitten. We here at Walletpop can't say we really blame you; they're kind of pricey, and some consumers have complained that trying to cancel can be a bit of a hassle. Besides, you figure your credit score is just fine... isn't it?

As this article from Bankrate points out, not being able to get a loan or being denied for a credit card application could mean your credit score isn't up to snuff. (Of course, realize that if the last time you applied for a credit card was in 2005, when America was awash in cheap credit, you're not really comparing apples to apples.)
