Default Fully remove Experian account (credit expert)

Hi, my first post

Does anyone know if it's possible to fully remove my membership details from the credit expert website. By this I don't mean wipe my credit history (that's not possible, i know!) But remove the fact that I can still log on to the website. I'm guessing you'll understand I'm trying to set up a new account to get a free 30-day trial, is this possible?

Cheers!

Phone CreditExpert and ask them
0844 481 0800
0115 935 6662
0800 5610083

Or Phone Experian at their head office
0115 941 0888

Edit: I'm pretty sure you can ever have one free trial (they'll know you who are when they do a new id check). It's only 2 for a statutory report and has all the same data.
I work within the voluntary sector, supporting vulnerable people to rebuild their lives.

I love my job

Sorry, I should of said I had phoned them already. Just I wasn't sure if they were 'bs'ing me or it just isn't possible.

The fact you have benefited from a free trial is not just logged on the website and no, you cannot clear it.

What is more productive is to ask how long before you can benefit from a second trial. As far as I am aware the answer is never from Experian but Equifax do allow you more than 1 free trial with a certain period between them

InsideInsurance, you are right, I got my second chance after 2 years (Experian), but I do not have any idea what is the minimum time between two demo's.

Yes he could, but 0 is better than 2 so it was worth asking the question. This is a money saving site after all...

I’m sure that its not just the website login shows that you have taken the benefit of the free trail. There are more evidence that will prevent you from getting another free trail.

Do you have a fee paying RBS or Natwest account at all?

You can get your experian credit report for free via the benefits available.

it is possible. Because i have had x2 30day trials. not sure what the time period is but i signed up in 2010 got a free trial. Then signed up again 2012 and got another free trial with exact same details. So its not impossible.

Contrary to this I first signed up about 8 years ago and got a free trial, cancelled after about a year and they wouldn't allow me a "new customer" free trial when I tried it on recently

It wouldnt let me have another free trial even though i last did one over 6 years ago.

So looks like you can only have one free trial. Unless their terms change.

"isn't worth zilch" is a nonsense but if you mean the information they supply isn't worth anything then I disagree. It can cost you a lot of money if a CRA holds inaccurate information about you and as a result you can't shift a high interest balance. Paying 4 in advance of a new credit application is a no-brainer and worth every penny
