Starting July 21, if you find yourself on the receiving end of an adverse action by a financial institution, such as an auto loan rejection, you'll be entitled to a free copy of your credit score from that institution.

By getting a look at your credit score, it can help you understand your credit situation and take steps to fix your credit. And because getting your credit score usually involves paying $10 or so to one of the three credit bureaus, a free score is something of a consolation prize.
