Ratings and Reviews
Beginner, I'm so excited about Stash!
Wow! I've started at the end of July and I feel very confident in this app. I've always wanted to invest. First I tried Merrill Lynch with my bank and they even called me, at first I thought I was opening just a retirement / savings account with them but they said I signed up for stocks which is very confusing since I thought it was savings. But I tried and really I couldn't understand nothing of that, I still haven't deposited anything because it's too confusing. So I researched other ways and this is when I found Stash. I started with $30 a week out my checking account then as of 2 weeks ago my only return was $2.35 and I had 4 ETFs but one seemed to not be doing so well, I know they say sell when market is low but as a beginner I don't understand all that but as it was not doing me well and the other 3 were better , I sold that one and put $10 out my stash account into the one doing extremely well. I feel very confident in my choices and as of yesterday I have a return of $4.35... In 2 weeks $2, that's amazing to me as it took me 4 months to get only $2.35. I'm still learning and I still want to open retirement and savings in stash as they offer both. I even got $5 for getting someone to sign up and it's $1 a month fee to stash :) no one can beat that! Win win!
Great way to get your gears going!
I’m a college student but I’m also a young individual that wants to contribute his part into the economy. I started back in July investing only $5 a week. I have been consistent with auto stash and sometimes stashing away another $5 here and there. Now I have $105 and have made 2.25 on it! It’s not much, and I’m not getting rich but I am making more than a savings account!
What I like about it is that my investments are small and the cash isn’t readily accessible. This barrier allows me to forget about the money I have invested and just let it build up. Within a year, I’ll have at least over $260. And that’s still better than I’d be doing anyways when I’ve “tried to save.” I think it’s great! And I’ve also been consistent with putting money away in another savings account. And I’ve been better with money.
This isn’t just about having an app you can make simple investments. This is about building positive basic habits that’ll we’ll be thankful for. This is only the beginning and once I graduate, I can really start buying stocks and investing for my future.
Thanks for the app!
Started out nice, but know I am ready to stop using altogether
This app has been denying me the ability to transfer my money out of stash and into my bank and this is VERY FRUSTRATING, since i needed the money days ago and the problem persists. I was told to contact stash in order to continue and they did not fix the problem. They sent me a link to FAQs and said I may want to reach out to a tax advisor! Thats there response to my request to access my own money! I have less than $250 in my stash and theyvwant me to hire a tax advisor to access it?! I am ready to take every last dollar out and quit stash altogether because of this problem. I waited days now and I really need the money, so I turn to my stash only to be denied access when I need it. What a truly bad experience to have with an app that claims to help with money management. If your interested in investing a small amount you may be in for a frustrating experience. They didn't answer my call and the e-mail response in no way solved my allowed me to access my Stash money again , my money is still stuck in stash. I'm so low on money right now that I'm starting to hate Stash for this, because I see no way to get my Stash money into my bank account anytime soon.
