The Fair Credit Reporting Act states that individuals have a right to one free credit report every 12 months from each of the three consumer reporting companies, according to Experian. To access the first free Experian credit report, visit AnnualCreditReport.com. Once the free report is viewed, users need to wait a year before requesting another free report from Experian.

As of 2015, the cost of additional reports is $14.95 each, states Experian. After ordering the additional report on Experian's website, view it multiple times online over the next 30 days. The website asks for personal identification information, a username, a password and credit card information to access records. Log in to the website to access existing reports, and then print or copy the information to another source to view it whenever necessary. Changes to the credit report or score are not always immediately added to previously ordered reports. To obtain information about changes to credit scores or reports, users need to purchase another report after the 30-day expiration date.

Some third parties view Experian credit reports multiple times without affecting an individual's credit score, notes Experian. It is common for those seeking car loans or mortgages to have multiple companies requesting reports on their Experian accounts. The company lists all of these requests on credit reports.
