Credit Sesame Launches Credit Badge Program

Sep 23, 2011 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- Credit Sesame, a personal finance website, has launched its Credit Badge program at the FinovateFall 2011 Conference in New York City.

As the web's first ever financial "badge" program, Credit Sesame said its free and secure Credit Badge rewards financially responsible individuals with specialty badges that certify to the world his or her financial responsibility and credit worthiness, providing a real edge in achieving career, business, or personal goals.

When individuals sign into Credit Sesame to receive their free credit score and have their debt and loans analyzed and optimized, Credit Sesame's patent pending Credit Badge program and advanced analytic and monitoring engine authenticates an individual's identity and awards them with free certified badges that they can share with friends and colleagues.

Just as companies have long demonstrated their good business standing and security by posting logos from BBB, VeriSign, and Trust-e on their webpages, individuals now can display their trustworthiness through Credit Sesame's new program. The Credit Badge was designed for consumers to embed their badge in their email signature, on social media sites, and on personal websites and profiles.

"Online profiles do a good job of communicating a person's job experience, or their personal likes, but they fall short in providing essential information about whether that individual is financially responsible or trustworthy at a time when this matters more than ever," said Adrian Nazari, founder and CEO of Credit Sesame. "The Credit Badge fills that critical information gap by validating the users' good financial standing—a true competitive advantage for responsible individuals, whether applying for a job, transacting business online, or even meeting the love of your life on a dating site!" Credit Sesame is a provider of personal finance tools that provide a free credit score and options to restructure debt and save money on loans.
