►PRICE◄
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.

"What's my account balance?"

No Feedback on Account Setup

Acorns has since solved my problem, turns out they were simply experiencing a serious backlog to new accounts looking forward to the weeks ahead to see how much I can round up on my card transactions.

—— old review below—-
Like everyone I was very excited to start rounding up sadly I never had the opportunity to experience any of the feature sets Acorns has to offer. The account setup was pretty easy and enjoyable although finding out after signing my certificate that it still would take 1 - 3 business days to verify my account was a bit disappointing but I get it. Here is where Acorns fell short, till this day 5 days later it still says I need to wait 1 - 3 business days for my account to be setup, uh hello it’s been 5 days! Like any American on day 3 I picked up the phone and called support, I was on the phone for about an hour before I got disconnected due to interruptions in service. I also tried email support but have heard nothing, no confirmation to my email over my support ticket nothing, maybe somethings up with my email but at this point I would prefer to speak with a human being and I think any service offering to make transactions from your bank account should support quick and easy customer service. I am open to changing my review if I ever get any support to rectify this rogue issue.

Like and Don’t like

When I first heard of Acorns and the idea of an electronic piggy bank that invest your spare change from purchases I thought “what a great and cool idea.” So after awhile i decided to give it a try. I like that all my banking accounts are linkable and you dont have to do anything after they are linked. What I didn’t and don’t like is when I first put my credit card info in, the app pulled all my accounts for the option to link. I would have rather done that manually. Another thing I don’t like is, my credit card that I first put in, is the account that all the spare change comes from even when several accounts are liked. I would rather have the spare change come from the individual accounts that are linked. The last thing I don’t like is when you transfer money between your accounts like I do each transfer also invests $1.00. I hope that makes sense to you and helps on deciding to start collecting your acorns and invest them.

Update: A developer has since responded to my review. The transfer of funds between your accounts that invest a whole dollar can be adjusted. Although this feature can be adjusted and has after the fact, I dont recall it being mentioned while setting up an account. Don’t get me wrong I am still using this savings/investment app.
