    I signed up to Experian a few years ago after a new CC was intercepted, activated and used, so I signed up to Experian for some safety.

    Have since seen about MSE’s own Credit Club, it mentions it uses Experian. So is it a no brainier to switch?

    Got no complaints with Experian but if I can save £10 a month, even better!

    I've used both and from what I can see MSE Credit Club gives you the exact same credit score and exact same credit report that Experian would have.

    Yes its the same as Experian, it takes the data from Experian including tue score although not sure whats the point since the score isn't seen by anyone else other than the users of the credit club.
    Can people stop loaning money/being a guarator to family/friends, it rarely ends well and you lose out as your money is gone or you get shafted with being a guarantor.

    Yes.

    Though I always seem to have a circa 100 point difference in score between MSE and Experian Credit Matcher - not that I pay attention to either
