You'll want to pull your credit score from a legitimate source: 

1) www.creditchecktotal.com (Pro: This will be a soft pull and will not cause a dip in your scores; Con: costs money) 

2) www.creditscore.com (Pro: This will be a soft pull and will not cause a dip in your scores; Con: costs money)

3) Your loan officer at the bank who will be qualifying you for a loan (Pro: free; Con: This will be a hard pull and could cause a drop in your credit scores by 5 -10 points). I would recommend going this route because it is free and you'll need to check your pre-qualification for a mortgage in any case. 

4) Youu can always go directly to the bureaus sites to purchase your scores individually from each site www.experian.comwww.transunion.com and www.equifax.com

Hope this helps!
