Acorns costs $1 per month for accounts investing less than $5,000. After your account grows past $5,000, the fee switches to 0.25% per year (@$5,000 that’s about $1 a month). That’s like 3 semi-fancy cups of coffee (you know you do it) a year, just to invest in your future.
In order for Acorns to invest your spare change from purchases, which is part of why we charge $1 per month, you will need to connect a bank account. Worry not - we've got 256-bit encryption. That's a nerdy way of saying we're as secure as the people you bank with. Now, stop reading and get invested.

It's a good app, but...
I enjoy the app and the overall idea behind it. However, I don't rather enjoy the inconsistency. I have all my accounts, that I frequently use, link to the roundup but after a while there's a delay on roundup, by more than a week. I would have to unlink and re-link just to get it started back and that's annoying. I will very much enjoy this issue to be fix because it's not very attractive.
BEST investment app! Changed my life
Love love this app. Acorns is very user-friendly, beautifully designed, and actually helpful! Setup was super easy. Round-ups are a painless, automatic way to save. Spare change does add up! Love their found money program too. I've tried a lot of the investment apps , and this is by far the best one.
Not able to connect outside USA
With the last update, is now impossible to login whenever you're outside the United States that is extremely stupid as if you travel or you are on vacation, you have no way to connect and check your account!!
I tried to update the app as they said, but as you can see from the review I already have the last one available. Only with my university VPN in the US the app works.
