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.

Needs some new features
Seen the app grow a lot. What it does, it does well. However a key feature that needs to be added/adjusted is the automatic withdrawal. It's such a tedious system to set up. You can have it start on a specific date. So let's say you want a monthly auto withdrawal from your checking to your Acorns account to fall on the first or on the 15th, you have to wait for that date before setting it up. If you want to do it weekly, let's say on a Friday... you have to wait on a Friday.
Considering a lot of their articles mention investing money as soon as you get it so that you don't "feel"/see it... you'd think you'd be able to set up a bi weekly withdrawal to fall on your payday... but nope. That's a headache for me.
However other than that it's a great app. Just really hope they make the tweaks.
Fantastic finance and micro-investing app
I was a beta tester for Acorns before it's official launch and I have loved it ever since! The round-ups are easy, the investing strategy is solid (you can't get mad when the whole market is struggling), their customer service is excellent, the fees are minimal and easy to understand, and the graphs are informational and give a great overview.
It's so much better than just rounding up your purchases in a bank savings account.
I plan to use Acorns for a very long time!
Love this app!
Kind of surprised this app doesn't have an incredible score. As someone who doesn't save well, it's a great way to "passively save" money, with the roundups accruing, and has encouraged me to set aside $40/week to build up my portfolio. Acorns automatically invests your money based off of your choice of aggressive portfolio, and I've made nothing but money off this app. I currently use it as my savings account, and have my money work for me! Highly recommended.
