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.

Why not ?
Fantastic app to save money here and there. A must for all coffee and tea drinkers.
Acorns is an incredible concept presented in a stunning app.
Here’s the problem: while I am able to take Mindy from my bank account and invest it (I chose $5), Acorns does not allow me to hook my card up via my bank’s routing number. This means that while I can choose to invest a few dollars once in a while, my main source of potential investments - my “change”, cannot be invested in Acorns.
Here’s why that’s a problem:
Acorns has a one dollar a month fee. It is clearly not worth it for me to invest a few dollars a month. However, if Acorns would either support more banks or let me hook up a bank via routing number, I’d be investing more than just $5. I’d be investing the spare change of 50-100 transactions. Only then would a monthly fee of $1 be worth it. I’d still be giving up nearly 10% of my returns, but it would be worth it, as Acorns would be a hassle free way of investing small increments of money to “grow into mighty oaks”.
In light of the round up feature being the only reason to use Acorns, I am astounded that they have not figured out a way to allow users to add a card via a routing number.
