As much as I love being able to complete things online, sometimes you just want to be able to pick up the phone and call customer service. And you can’t always find the number easily. I went searching for the Credit Sesame phone number recently, and struggled to find it. They certainly don’t make it easy, but I’m here to solve that problem for you.
Credit Sesame is a site where you can track your credit score for free and get tips on how to improve that number. It’s an awesome product for people working to raise their credit score. They also offer suggestions of products you can sign up for (such as credit cards) that your score qualifies you for. (These recommendations are how they make money and keep the service free.)
The Credit Sesame phone number is:
This will take you into their automated system, which you can use to get in touch with a real person.
Their FAQ is quite helpful, and their email response time is great, but sometimes you just want to hear a person’s voice, or you need an answer quickly and can’t wait for an email back and forth. While we are going to a more technology based society, I think that it’s still very important to be able to pick up the phone and have a conversation with a customer service representative, especially when it comes to financial products. Let’s be honest – the financial industry can be confusing for a lot of people (which is part of the reason I write this blog). Sometimes you just need a person to listen to your question and help you understand the answer. And now that you have the Credit Sesame phone number, you have one more place you can try.
Megan is a 30-something government employee in the Washington, DC area. She got interested in Personal Finance when she got out of college and realized that her paycheck wasn’t going to go as far as she had hoped. Since starting this blog, she has managed to buy a house and make a solid start on her retirement goals, and hopes to help others do the same. Here is her story:
In 2007, I was a gainfully employed 20-something with no debt but not a lot of knowledge about personal finance. It was a co-worker’s comment about Roth IRAs that sent me to the internet, searching for information. It was then that I realized that I really didn’t know a whole lot about personal finance and that my current financial situation was due a lot to inherent frugal tendencies, generous family members, a fear of debt, and good luck. While that was working for me, clearly I needed a better plan.
While I had no debt, I was also pretty much living paycheck to paycheck and not worrying about going over budget (I say this as if I had a real budget) because I had an emergency fund set aside to cover any overages.
Except that’s not what an emergency fund is for.
So I did a lot of research, read a lot of blogs, and decided that I needed a plan. I needed to budget. I needed to know what I was spending my money on. I needed to prepare for the future.
I decided to create a blog not only to make myself accountable to others but also to share the knowledge that I gained along the way. I’ve learned so much from my fellow bloggers, and I hope that my readers can find something useful in what I have to share as well.
