According to the Credit Nerds website, this credit audit involves a “full breakdown of all items” on a client’s credit report and provides clients with a significant amount of information regarding their overall credit profile. 

Additionally, Credit Nerds provides educational resources along with the credit audit to assist clients with expanding their credit knowledge.

Overall, the company puts a major focus on helping clients learn more about their credit profiles and strives to help clients establish bright credit futures.

The Good

  • Free Credit Repair Service
  • In-depth Credit Audit Service
  • Online Educational Resources

Free Credit Repair Service

As previously mentioned, Credit Nerds provides a free credit repair service. 

This type of service is unique as most credit repair companies charge steep fees for their credit repair plans. 

According to the company’s website, clients usually stay in the company’s credit repair program for four to six months. This timeframe, however, can change based on a number of factors. 

Credit Nerds does not promise that all or any negative items will be removed during the four to six month period. Most credit repair companies that do promise clients specific results are likely not providing completely legitimate services. 

The company also offers a credit audit, but does not require clients to sign up and pay for a credit audit before using its credit repair services. 

In-depth Credit Audit Service

Credit Nerds clients can choose to pay for an in-depth credit audit before signing up for the company’s free credit repair services. 

This credit audit costs a one-time fee of $97 and involves a complete breakdown of all items on a client’s credit report. 

The Credit Nerds’ website states that, as part of the credit audit, the company will review each item and will explain to the client how each item affects them as well as how clients can maintain good credit scores and reports outside of using credit repair services. 

In addition to the review, Credit Nerds will also provide credit education resources to help clients learn more about their credit report and credit scores. 

Again, clients do not have to sign up and pay for a credit audit before they can sign up for the company’s free credit repair services. 

The audit is designed to provide clients with more credit information and insight which can help them achieve their long-term credit goals. 

Online Educational Resources

The credit repair company has a variety of helpful educational resources on its website, including the following: 

  • Courses — cover topics like credit basics, budgeting, saving, banking, identity theft, and more 
  • Life Events — helps consumers learn about life events like buying a car, going to college, renting, buying a home, and getting a job
  • Credit for Kids — helps consumers teach all children from pre-k to college to those with special needs about credit 
  • Financial Calculators — provides consumers with tools that can help them determine how much car they can afford, how much house they can afford, and more 

All website visitors can use these educational tools and resources to learn more about personal finance and what they can do to improve their current financial situations.

The Bad

  • Monitoring Account Required 
  • Self-Mail Service Required 
  • Limited Website Information 

Monitoring Account Required

Although Credit Nerds offers a free credit repair service, the company does require clients to pay for and keep “an active 3-bureau monitoring account” with its credit report partner. 

The cost for this account is $39.95 per month and is paid directly to the monitoring account company. 

Self-Mail Service Required 

Credit Nerds also asks clients to “mail correspondence to creditors or credit bureaus” themselves. The company’s website explains that clients could incur additional fees since some items may need to be mailed certified. 

Limited Website Information

Although Credit Nerds does provide a significant amount of information on its website regarding its educational credit resources, the company’s website does lack in providing other, important information that some clients may want to know. 

Credit Nerds does not appear to offer information regarding the following: 

  • Refunds/money-back guarantee policies
  • Staff credentials
  • Customer service availability
  • Client portal or accessibility to updates/results
  • Credit repair service process 

That said, potential clients may be able to obtain this information quickly by contacting the company directly via phone or email. 

Consumers can easily locate contact information on the Credit Nerds website.

The Bottom Line

Credit Nerds has provided helpful services to thousands of clients over the past 13 years. 

The credit repair company offers something that is almost unheard of in the credit repair industry — a free credit repair service. 

Although clients are required to pay for a tri-bureau credit monitoring account, consumers will be hard-pressed to find another company that offers such low-cost services. 

Credit Nerds also offers a completely optional credit audit that clients can pay for to learn more about the items on their credit reports, how those items affect them, and what they can do to obtain and maintain a good credit report and credit scores in the future. 

Potential clients should note that the company does not require consumers to sign up and pay for its credit audit service before they’re able to use its credit repair services. 

The Arkansas-based company also provides a vast amount of educational resources as well as a helpful frequently asked questions section on its website. 

Those who are interested in Credit Nerds services can contact the company directly and view customer reviews to obtain more information.

Mark98 Anchorage, AK

My own case is different, I have a criminal record but I have not been in trouble for over 20 years. I have a very low score of 476 with 11 inquiries and two credit cards that an ex of mine got put in my name and maxed them out, and God knows what. Although I never was taught about credit and before I even could apply for a credit card when I turned 18 I'd already ruined my credit but the good news is that, I came across good reviews about a credit repair expert on how he helped people fix their credit, I filed my report to him and in less than 2 weeks, he cleared the criminal record and wiped all inquiries, now I have a whopping score of 779. all thanks to him, you can search him on google (efficientnethack) and email him if you need a credit help.

I am the president of Pathway Financial. A lot of times our clients don't qualify for our products based on credit. Throughout our 7 years, we have attempted to use multiple credit repair agencies. I say attempted because for the most part it yielded little to no results. Once I met Eric at Credit Nerds, we knew we found the guy to get the job done. He is a straight shooter, he knows what he can get done and what he can't, and in an industry like credit repair sadly, honesty is hard to come by. Credit Nerds is top notch. Professional, honest, inexpensive, and they actually get the job done. I will continue to refer all of our clients, family and friends to them with no hesitation.

I thought my credit issues would just fade away until I went to buy a car and wasn't approved. It was embarrassing and I knew I had to fix my credit report in order to qualify for a house later down the line. I had no idea how to start the process of cleaning up my credit but credit nerds really eased my anxieties with their up front & honest approach. Now im on my way. Thanks credit nerds!

Charles Peru, IN

After my wife and I got married we want to clean out the financial skeletons in our closet. We contacted Credit Nerds and they got us where we needed to be as quickly as possible. They showed us how to review our own credit (for free) so it wasn't strictly a blind trust type situation with CN, and they walked through it with us explaining the lingo. Once we were aware of what our trends were, they also helped switch to a better credit card to seriously improve our credit score with minimal hit tour finances.

I was nervous at first because I had tried other services like ones who claim to be a "law" company, only to be red flagged and making it harder each time I tried. CCC removed a bankruptcy, two tax liens and over 25 collections in the first few months! I couldn't be happier!

I was quite impressed with the people at CreditNerds.com. When my husband and I decided to buy a house we were upset when we had trouble getting approved. They went over our reports with us line by line and helped us not only improve our credit report, but understand why it was the way it was to start with. Thank Credit Nerds...

Ash Monge Dallas, TX

I called to see if they could accommodate me with a better pricing to still keep an eye of my Credit Score. My hours were cut down of COVID-19 and it’s difficult to keep up with that payment every month with this pandemic. I spoke with Jordan, On May 1st, 2020 @ 9:20 am and I felt she didn’t care if Credit Nerds looses customers. My adviser from Renatus told me Credit Nerds were able to accommodate me with a better pricing. Because they pay $7 a month. Maybe Jordan was having a bad day today. And doesn’t care for her customers. I feel bad! And disappointed...

We have contacted this reviewer and, as of the end of the call, believe she was satisfied with the response. We are so sorry for confusion on this account. We have discussed the issue with Ash and explained that we were unable to provide a discount to her because we are not the company who was actually charging her that price. It was her 3rd party monitoring account fee. We provided her the info to convert her account over to a new monitoring provider that would have a lower cost. We make no excuse for this issue, and take responsibility for not being more clear when she spoke with Jordyn. We have taken the following action: 1. Called the client to correct and explain the issue. 2. Discussed the cause of the issue and ways to avoid it with Jordyn. 3. Sent a company wide message about the confusion to keep it from happening in the future. Sincerely, The CreditNerds
