This app is amazing! I can't believe that they basically do everything for you as long as you invest your spare change and if you would like to add more money to invest! I got my wife to invest and also this coming Monday my mother wants to invest! I had my navy federal account for over 5yr and I am wondering if acorns can mandate it back that far? I love acorns and thank you for investing in my future!!!
Easy to use, easy to understand gateway to the world of investing. For people who like to "set it and forget it" type of investors. Choose from one of 7 different investment portfolios based on risk assessment. Not for the person who wants to micromanage and pick/choose individual stocks/bonds. Great tool for a hands off, casual investor or someone who is just getting started in the world of investing.
I am enthusiastic about Acorns. Depending on how it starts rolling out, I expect to up this review to 5 stars. EDIT: After the first 2 months, I have lost money here (gained $0.25 over 2 months after investing ~$150; but it costs $1 a month; free savings accounts do better than that over 2 months). Meanwhile, I made 3% gains in Robinhood. Instead of raising my review to 5 stars, I'll have to lower it to 3 stars for the time being.
Investing made easy round ups are cool. Easy to use I knew nothing about the stock market. Start with 20$ and learn how to use the app to adjust your portfolio or whatnot. Only thing is I wish they would allow you to choose how much you want to invest in each subject individually.
Simple easy way to encourage yourself to save while letting your money work for you. Just make sure you invest a decent amount to start, or the 1 dollar a month in fees will eat away at your market gains early on.
i liked the app until i decided to unlink my card. but that didnt stop them from continuously pulling money from me. i even paused my investments. but they still tried pulling from me and now i have been charged an overdraft fee from my bank when this app pulled money, even though i basically stopped it. so very flawed if you ask me.
Happy New Year! We made some enhancements and fixed a few bugs to start 2018 right. We hope this makes Acorns work even better for you. Thanks for growing with us!
