Why Savvy Money?

Check Your Score Daily

Many people worry that by checking their credit score too much they will see their score drop. Savvy Money allows you to check your score in what is known as a “soft inquiry,” which does not affect your credit score. Lenders use “hard inquiries” to make decisions about your credit worthiness when you apply for loans.

Monitor Unusual Activity

Savvy Money also monitors your credit report daily and informs you by email if there are any big changes detected such as: a new account being opened, change in address or employment, if a delinquency has been reported or an inquiry has been made. This helps you keep an eye out for identity theft and monitor the spending on your cards.

Get Alerts

If Unusual Activity is detected, Savvy Money will notify the user so that they can take the necessary measures to correct.

Credit Simulator

Credit score events help you visualize the relationship of your credit score with payment history, usage, or opening & closing of accounts. Use the credit score simulator to see the potential impact of opening new accounts or paying off balances. This interactive tool will simulate your credit scores before you actually take any actions.

Receive Special Offers

Based on your Savvy Money information, you may receive helpful articles and product offers from Baptist Health Federal Credit Union. Product offers will be based on your credit score and spending. In most cases, these offers may have lower interest rates than the products you already have. Our goal is to empower you with the information to make the most out of your money.
