Hands free 4/5
Hassle free, hands free, mind free...ur investments keep on going for u...like it.
Some annoying changes 2/5
If I decide to make a one-time investment, I want to choose the exact amount. Now, Acorns wants to force me into adding on the current round-up total. I don't like that at all.
The graph of potential earnings has some issues:
- What is this projection based on? Current balance only or assumed continuation of the average of past roundups? Needs to be explicitly clear.
- If you select less than a 20-year forecast, numbers run off left edge of graph and are unreadable.
- You can only select 10-year increments.
One positive change: It's good to be able to set round-up amount for whole dollar transactions. Giving people more rather than less control should always be the aim.
I made 4 cents! 1/5
That's 4 -FOUR
Good For Beginners 3/5
Easy to navigate, great for beginners who want to learn. But I was making more money on referrals than investment and dividends...
If only… 4/5
They would get into the mutual fund game at least, then it would open up the potential for this app even more. Just waiting on it ⏳
Performance chart is worse 2/5
By Dr. K1ll1nger
The performance chart no longer shows when round-ups and other contributions are invested. Why is less information better?
Great idea, poorly executed 2/5
After converting an old 401k to a SEP IRA, I was bitten by the investment bug. I didn't plan on getting rich from Acorns, but rounding up purchases seemed like a great way invest and save a little extra. After the first month, round ups stopped working. While you can adjust how aggressive you want your portfolio, everything seemed to be invested in vanguard etfs. Comparing the portfolio I created in my sep to the portfolio acorns picked for me, there was no contest. I'll stick to picking my own investments.
Good looking app 1/5
Like the look and feel of the app but it keeps jacking up my linked account. A must fix for this type of service.
Great way to save. 5/5
I love saving money. This is essentially like having round up options into a savings account with each debit card purchase at any bank, except the returns are much better. Love it.
Removed "Past" tab 1/5
They recently added a "Past" tab to show total performance. Immediately removed it in the next update. Looks like developer is trying to hide performance. I recommend not downloading Acorns. Give another app a try.
Easy to save 5/5
By Candy Shack
It's nice to save without having to think about it
Easy to Use, Easy to Save 5/5
Acorns has been helpful for me as a teacher to have a little extra cash building on the side rather than worry about a side hustle. It's nice to check every few weeks and see my account growing knowing I can withdraw if I have a vacation coming up and not worry about using a credit card or dipping into my check or savings accounts! Nice!
FREEZES!!! Will not update!
Great app easy to use 5/5
By Teacher Sheri
This app is so easy to get started and maintain. It's a painless way to enter the stock market on a limited weekly basis. The round up feature is great too!
Great idea, just not implemented great. 2/5
The fact that it takes almost a week for transactions to come out of my bank account makes this app unusable for me. The user interface is somewhat confusing.
Credit union not found 1/5
My credit union is not listed, I cannot set this up.
This app is great! 5/5
This is such an easy way to save!
Saved So Much! 5/5
Love this app!
Still waiting to get my account started. 1/5
I signed up to Acorns two and a half weeks ago, all my information was excepted and I was told it would take 3-5 business days to start. I'm still waiting and none of my E-mails have been answered.
Great in theory, but be careful if you're broke like me 4/5
The idea is great, and at first this app was awesome for me. I'm 22, I never get to invest in anything like that. It was awesome knowing I had money invested in stocks and what not, and I fully trusted the app. But I am a person that unfortunately still makes minimum wage and frequently lives paycheck to paycheck. I'd get a notification from my bank; 'your balance has reached $0'. I look at the charges, and it's acorns, pulling out more money, causing my account to overdraft, which is something I'm not okay with. They never really warn you when they take out the round-ups, just suddenly one day there's $10 worth of roundups leaving your account. So for now I have to cancel. But once I'm in a better financial situation, you bet I will be investing with acorns again.
Good but could be Great 4/5
A new user to the App and have enjoyed it so far although have witnesses a few bugs that sometimes do and don't exist. Besides that I find the app very useful for investing. My one big suggestion would be to send out a notification for the accounts value at the close of the stock market each day. It would be great to see the growth without having to go into the app at the end of a workday.
Best investment/savings tool! 5/5
Love this app and it's simplicity! If I had used it correctly I would have saved and invested a tone! Try it and see for yourself.
By yes sir
Keep improving! Good to stay fresh.
Great easy convenient way to save and invest money
Love Acorns 5/5
One of the best moves I've made for saving. The "change" adds up quickly. I've had to withdraw a couple of hard times. The process was easy. Now am in process if building up again and will not be touching funds for at least a year if not longer. Love watching funds grow!
Love this app 5/5
By Mitchell mccormick
I love the round up feature in this app. It takes money away from me and I don't even know it so I don't have to constantly update it. I don't look at it for a few weeks and bam I have way more money in this than I thought I did. Great if you are like me and money burns a hole in your pocket sometimes.
Awesome investment app! 5/5
You can start with a very small amount and grow it with every purchase-totally painless!
Love this app, easy to use and understand.
This app is a joke 1/5
Don't use unless you like to throw money away
Wonderful way to Invest 5/5
Micro investing is a great way for me to grow my money anxiety free🤗 Acorns does all the work and I don't stress about the amounts of money or how and when to invest. Thanks Acorns❗️
The change jar for non cash purchasers 5/5
We have saved over $250 by doing absolutely nothing. Just by having Acorn swipe my change from my electronically managed charges and throw it in my virtual change jar. They invest while it sits and come Christmas, I have the cash I need to stay out of debt. Win-win!
Awesome app! 5/5
By Ky Huff
If you're looking to invest on a small scale and learn a lot. This is the app for you!
It's a good app, but... 4/5
By Ricky Bobby J
I enjoy the app and the overall idea behind it. However, I don't rather enjoy the inconsistency. I have all my accounts, that I frequently use, link to the roundup but after a while there's a delay on roundup, by more than a week. I would have to unlink and re-link just to get it started back and that's annoying. I will very much enjoy this issue to be fix because it's not very attractive.
By Accupuncture Hedgehog
Good app for micro-investing. Ramp-up is slow... 4/5
This app is a great way to utilize "change" via roundups from Credit Card charges. Progress is slow (even w. The aggressive portfolio) unless you invest additional funds
Not able to connect outside USA 1/5
With the last update, is now impossible to login whenever you're outside the United States that is extremely stupid as if you travel or you are on vacation, you have no way to connect and check your account!!
I tried to update the app as they said, but as you can see from the review I already have the last one available. Only with my university VPN in the US the app works.
Saving effortlessly 5/5
I started using Acorns with roundups and saving $$ has been painless.
BEST investment app! Changed my life 5/5
Love love this app. Acorns is very user-friendly, beautifully designed, and actually helpful! Setup was super easy. Round-ups are a painless, automatic way to save. Spare change does add up! Love their found money program too. I've tried a lot of the investment apps , and this is by far the best one.
Roundup meter 5/5
By R. E. L.
I like the new design, but I had submitted a 3 star review due to my displeasure at the disappearance of the roundup meter and performance graph that used to be on the home page. I don't know what happened overnight, I know I didn't get another update, but I was pleasantly surprised to find both features had appeared this morning. I have an update awaiting download, so my review may require further fine tuning as the week wears on, but so far I'm liking what I see and think it's worth a 5 star review at present. I like using Acorns to invest, but I like an app that is simple to use.
Not Happy !! 2/5
When I first got this app it was great…Then my roundups stopped about a month ago… My round up account could no longer be linked, even though it used to work… I have contacted customer support on a few occasions and was given no solution… I'm ready to pull my money and do something else.
When do I make Money? 2/5
So after putting in over $1,000 to start with after 5 months i have made around $24 and you have made $5. Your investors need some help. I am going to take my money elsewhere. This was a test from reading good reviews but it was a failed test.
Recurring Investment 3/5
I get paid by weekly on Fridays, so while it's always every other Friday, it's my always on the same day of the month. It would be awesome to have Acorns take my recurring investment every other Friday, rather than just on a set day(s) of the month.
Where's the customer service number? 1/5
It's a shame when a company that has your money gives you no way to speak to a representative when you need one. No customer service number anywhere, I had to search online for over an hour to get a number that goes to a voicemail. I will be taking my money out asap.
Love love love 5/5
My sister recommend this app to me and it was everything I expected. Works seamlessly, I don't even notice the moneys gone. It's a great way for people like myself who don't seem to save no matter what they do to save some money.
I also withdrew money that I needed and it was simple and in my account in a fewdays!
So far so good 4/5
Very easy to use and modify. No issues with withdrawing funds or changing settings.
Ok, technical errors 4/5
By Big Wel guy
Only complaint I have is he automatic weekly deposit I have set up has stopped working. I emailed support once and they advised that it didn't process correctly and do it again. I did it again, and one deposit was made and then no others were made.
Need to do better beta testing before releasing updates.
Great App 5/5
I've had no issues with the app and it does everything I claims to do! I've stashed money and started investing in small amounts
One of my favorite LA startups 4/5
Saving change and rounding up has been around but never have you been able to easily invest with it. Now you can start saving away and enter the market. No more barrier to entry. PS those people complaining about their accounts being -$ calm down... So what if you're down $100, imagine what others are losing in the world market. You should be using Acorns for the long haul and stop micro-managing your pennies.
Love, Love, LOVE this App 5/5
Acorns allows you to save money you'd likely otherwise spend. Not only does it invest spare change, but there's an option to deposit larger quantities whenever you choose. The best thing about it, IMO, is that you receive dividends which are then reinvested! It's a great way to save and to watch your savings grow substantially as long as you keep contributing.
The redesign will take some getting used but I'm glad they fixed the issue with viewing Round-ups.
