About Credit Karma
Everyone deserves to feel confident about their finances. Our job is to give you the tools, the education and the opportunities you need to make real, meaningful progress.
Thinking about your finances can be frustrating, but we're working to make the process simpler and easier to understand for over 75 million Credit Karma members.
How we stay free
Credit Karma will always be free. The offers on our site help us keep it that way. When you take an offer through Credit Karma (like for a credit card or a loan), we usually make some money from one of our partners (like the bank that issues the card or the lender who funds your loan).
We'll even crunch the numbers and give you personalized recommendations. When those tips are on target, we both win. But if you're not interested, that's totally fine too - you'll never get charged for using Credit Karma.
