Easy savings, 5/5
Even as a financial advisor, I find saving to be difficult. The round ups feature makes stashing my spare change easy and mindless. It's great checking in my acorns account every other month or so to see my account grow not just in savings but in performance as well.
Can't even log in 1/5
I am not even able to log in it keeps kicking me out and saying I am not a user.
I like the old dashboard better 4/5
Great app but I like the old dashboard where you had the graph showing when you opened the app.
A good start for investing. 5/5
By Zombie 377
Acorns is a strong tool for your first investment account because you can start small and grow your portfolio at your own pace. The fee is reasonable and you quickly see returns that outpace it so you can really put your money to work.
Works fine for me. Easy to use

Very Convenient Helps Save A lot Of Money Who Knew A Little Bit Of Change Would Add Up To So Much, Also For Stock Oriented People Definitely Worth It!!
The perfect nibbles! 5/5
Without ever feeling a pinch, Acorns always takes little nibbles. Before long, you've got some serious savings and never felt it.
So far so good 4/5
I'm new to Acorns, been using for about 3 months now. I like the interface and the pie chart reports of my progress. This is not my primary investing tool, but I like the set it and forget it approach to saving money.
Mostly good... 4/5
Love the idea and that you can turn on a round up multiplier. Takes a solid week to pull any money out which seems long, although I understand that they are selling stocks/bonds to get my money. Pretty attractive fees too.
Great App!!! Financial Planners not needed 5/5
By Saul who became Paul
Financial Planners take 30% of your retirement and make millions a year!!! They don't help you!!! This app is honest and does way more than any financial planner could ever do!!!! Thank you Acorn for kicking greedy Wall Street stock brokers to the curb!!!!
Love it 5/5
By H mulligan
This is a great way to get your feet wet in the market. I do the $5 a day and will let the money sit in there for the long term as to let my money make money. Great Application.

Takes the guesswork out of investing!!
"Easy" Savings Account 5/5
Basically set this up as my "emergency fund" and it's been a fun and easy to watch it grow. It's not exactly "over-performing" but the price is right and it's making more than any traditional savings or money market fund through the bank!
Easy to use! 5/5
Great for low starting points with investing easy to use!

Investments & round up made simple 5/5
Great app. Love the fact that you can invest in stuff using round ups from purchases. Definitely a must try. Hope they introduce more investment options
Awesome App & Concept 5/5
Thought I would try Acorns just to check it out. This has become a great way to invest small dollars for me on top of my regular retirement savings.
In addition to RoundUps, I have started making little challenges for myself. For example, every day that I don't go to Starbucks I put $2 in Acorns. If I bring my lunch to work, I invest $10.
I signed up in Jan 2017 and have saved $2,700 in "loose change" and challenges in 7 months. The App works flawlessly and is very easy to maneuver through. Highly recommended.
Investing made easy 5/5
It's easy to use and if I need money it's easy to withdraw
As easy as 1-2-3 5/5
Rounding up my charges never felt sooo good
So far so good 5/5
By I Pay Your Bills
Have been enjoying it so far
Great for saving 5/5
Pretty much like everyone else, I don't notice the money missing. I also do weekly withdrawals and did the 3x multiplier, and when I realized how much I'd saved in a few months without noticing it (around $800), I bumped it to the 10x multiplier. It helps incentivize me to spend less on trivial things, while saving a little more. Highly recommended.
Good app! Takes tension out of investing! 4/5
It's good app. If you are busy with work and this app will take care of your investing needs. Although it's robo advisers app. So if market is down you will also be affected.
Good App 4/5
This app is very helpful and a great way to save and invest your money
Great way to invest 4/5
I've been using Acorns a little over a week now and have done nothing but lose money, but it's money that I have forgotten about. Also, I'm sure it will eventually go back up. I like the ease. Only thing I don't like about the app is that it waits until you have reached $5 worth of roundups. It would be nice if it could take it when it's used. Other than that I love it.
Seamless Investing 5/5
You can make this a game for yourself, or this could be a serious investment tool. Either way this is a cool tool where everything has been thought of and perfected. Love it!
Easy to use 5/5
This app makes it easy for me to create a savings that I would not have been able to on my own. I wish I would have joined sooner.
Great App 5/5
This is an AWESOME app! It is easy to use and the interface is great!
Pocketing dinero 5/5
I've been utilizing this app for the past couple months.I have saved almost $500 so far and I'm loving the easy results !
Love how I save 4/5

I still wish you hadn't changed the home screen but I DO love this app. I've saved money and I never have to think about it. It's my rainy day fund.
Very useful app 5/5

Makes it very easy to save with auto deduction and roundups

Yay! Round ups 5/5

Fun to be a squirrel 5/5
I love this app. Great way to squirrel a little away each week and watch the power of compounding interest. I have a 401k but rarely pay attention to it. This on the other hand is just fun to watch grow!
Low returns and bad percent gain/loss calculation 1/5
The app's percent return calculation is terrible. I think it uses the whole amount deposited into the account (not taking off the withdrawals). I had to prepare my own spreadsheet to calculate the returns. So far the performance is not very good. Since the beginning of this year (today is Aug 22) my gain is a little below 4% with their moderate risk portfolio. I'm not impressed.
Great Idea! 5/5
Great idea for investing - easy use of spare change by rounding up. Makes tracking bank statements easy too.
I love this app, little over a year almost $800 so far. I check it all the time to see the marked , if it was up or down. I would highly recommend this to everyone.
Love this app! 5/5
I wish this was around years ago! A must for all kids learning about money!
Great investing solution! 5/5
App works well and the service is an easy way to invest.

Simple to use. Great for someone who's starting out.
Great for beginner investors 5/5
Teaches you basic principles of the stock market with a convenient, clean interface.
Great idea, but a few critical problems 2/5
By Nick Serianni
The first major problem is that it does not take money out of your bank account as the change rounds up, it waits to get to $5+ in round ups and then just withdraws a chunk all at once.
Second, to withdraw funds from the Acorns account is a long process. They say 3-5 business days so I decided to test it. I tried to withdraw a small sum of $200 and I'm going on business day 13 now and still not in my account. It took 8 business days to complete the selling of shares, and it's has been 6 business days and still hasn't hit my account.
If it is this much of a problem for a small amount, how can I trust them with larger amounts?
LOVE this mindless investing app! 5/5
This app is for ANYONE who wants to save money while investing. I saw in the other reviews that this app is meant for younger people. I do not agree. I am 50 and using this app long-term because I do not plan on retiring until I'm 75. I love the fact that this is mindless investing. Between this app, my 401(k) and personal investments, I no longer have to worry about having enough for retirement. This app is limitless and how you invest. You can let the round up to do the work to build your portfolio or you can add money in the amount of your choosing to further the investments. I check it daily and love how it motivates me to keep saving. I highly recommend Acorns, and have suggested it to several friends with one of them already signing up. Here's to a prosperous 2017!
Easy Way To Save 5/5
Great App. Easy to set up, easy to use, easy way to save money. I only wish they allowed for multiple recurring deposits. I'd like to have both a weekly and daily recurring deposits.
