I've had this for 8 months now and pd a dollar for each month in fees, however the dividends have been greater, which I was skeptical about at first. I started with $20 and it has grown to a larger amount without me even noticing that I didn't have it to spend anymore. I'm so happy that I started acorns, the extra cash will come in handy some day. Until then I will enjoy watching it grow.
Overall, simple, effortless, cheap. Great way to invest when if you don't have much to invest, don't have all day to investigate the stock market, and maybe aren't too stock market trading savvy. Would recommend to anyone. I'd give it 5 stars if they had the tax benefits other programs like Wealthfront have. Would like to see them bring back a summary view of performance showing total dividend growth, gains/losses, investments, etc.
Love this app...I got dividends on the change I deposited. Don't really miss the change that goes to this account. It amazed me I already saved almost $500. My checking account be lucky to see$0.01 interest earned on my deposits. I haven't been doing this for very long but it's the best app I got and it works flawlessly on my phone and tablet. It's a very easy way to save money and the interest on my money is way more then if it sat in a savings account!
I set this up in February of 2017 and it's helped me save $500 without really noticing that it was gone. It takes several days to receive money from withdrawals which helps prevent impulse withdrawals. I had a few issues when I first started using the app so it isn't perfect but I'm glad I have it. It has been more effective at saving and growing my money than I could ever be.
App continues to have issues linking my accounts and it is costing me found money. Round ups do not work. That is the primary feature which makes this app different. If the feature doesn't work, app is useless. Support is slow to respond. You're better off using stash. I've had 0 problems with that micro investing app.
This app is perfect for me to store money away and forget about it until a rainy day. Think about this. I put my girl on about a year ago, who is horrible with budgeting, and she literally forgot about the app... I actually think she deleted until I asked about it again. When she finally looked at it she TOOK ME OUT TO EAT LOL. It's definitely worth AT LEAST trying. The $5 bonuses are almost nothing compared to what toy actually gain in the long run.
