Investing simplified As a newcomer to the investing world I was nervous about hopping in and the complexity that it seemed to be, however, after being referred to acorns by a professor I decided to give it a shot. I have been pleasantly surprised by how little effort it takes have an account. The fees are quite similar to others companies offering similar services. I was also pleased at the small amounts you could work with. Many other mutual bond companies require minimum investments of 1000 dollars or so.
App has stopped working I have really enjoyed using this service. However, since the new year there have been no roundups on my accounts. In fact, one of the accounts I had selected has disappeared and another account requires a security code (which I put in and still doesn't work). Like I said I have been enjoying this service but it now isn't doing anything right. I send an email 4 days ago with no response.
Just hit $1000.00 I have had this app for 9 months and while I was hesitant to download it originally... today I hit $1,000. It has features that allow you to test out different portfolios and really understand market trends. A great place for your spare change.
Does allow acct to link I signed up for an account, signed into my Chase account, when I select my account, Acorn says it is an invalid number! Now I have provided these yahoo's with my bank sign on. But the software says my account is invalid. Now says my account is live, but won't accept my password, so can't get onto the app. This should not be this difficult! Sounds fishy to me and I am off to change my bank password. User beware!
Acorn App I happen to like this app. I'm taking it slow, I use my roundups from my change, put $10 as recurring weekly payment and deposit some money if I can. My dividends are only cents but I'm not a lot in, I've taken some out and have already recouped what I took out...
Thank you helping me understand! I truly enjoy the idea that your team has developed here. Thank you for your service to my family and I. Anyone can appreciate saving their money with a group that works to develop it. I'd say, over the antiquated system that is banking, this is new fresh and clean and in a lot of ways, feels safer! I made uneducated claims in the past about your service. I apologize and thank you for allowing me to retract. I would recommend Acorns Investment App to anyone.
