If someone got the email and is not using it, is it possible for someone else to redeem it?
I'd be down to pay like $15 lol
When I had the 1 year free homedepot I'd login to equifax every few days and watch my score change lol.

Was kinda fun seeing it go down a few points then up like ten points.

Everyone has a unique claim number tied to their name.
Unless you're lucky enough to find another person with the exact first and last name as yours, you're SOL.

Still?

Also, forgive my ignorance, was there a recent breach or is this a continuation of the last one? I got the one year free whenever that was....

When the home depot thing happened and we got 1 year free, i never filed a claim I just called the # and they asked for my name and gave me a code to redeem on the Equifax site.

Gonna call them tomorrow and see if they can give me a claim number maybe they have one on record for me.

Can we do this if we got the free year from the breach last year?

I got the free year and they sent me the email, so I assume so?

I am on the fence on this....really don't want to sign up and not get reimbursed for some reason.

I went for a couple of years with the original HD breach and then there was another one for Target, seemed like it would never end, there was always another breach....are there any other true free ones out there?
