The easiest way to grow 5/5
By yes sir
Love this app. Started investing spare change. Then added a weekly recurring investment. Referred some friends and used Found Money. Now I've got over $2,000 invested.
Great and easy.... 5/5
Great and easy way to save $$$$ without even feeling any impact.
Bi weekly 5/5
By SHEM HTP
There needs to be a bi weekly option to invest from your bank account. There's only daily, weekly and monthly. Most people get paid every two weeks. Other then that, I'm completely sold on acorn. They really make investing simple especially for first time investors.

Saved $1100 in a year 5/5
This is not a paid ad. I saved $1100 in a year without even noticing. I love this app and I recommend it to all of my friends
A small step towards saving more! 5/5
This app has made me start saving small change much easier! I used to have something similar called keep the change & it was connected to my bank account. I would constantly move it over once I would hit a certain amount. This app doesn't let you transfer instantly (10 business days) and also invests at the same time! I'm very please with this app.
Easy to save and invest. I have average return over 18 months of 9.5%. Try getting that anywhere else with small fees.
Love it! 5/5
This app is awesome! Since everything is all online based these days it works great! And now your spare change can be saved and invested, sweet!
Simple way to save 5/5
Nothing great but nice way to save.
So Simple, and So Effective! 5/5
A very simple way to save, and invest!
Still new 2/5
This app is still new to me seeing as I only just recently opened an account. However I seem to like it well enough, my only complaint is that it'd be easier to have a bi-weekly option for when you get paid. You don't see the money which would be great wouldn't have to worry about how much is being taken out. I've heard great things about acorns so I'm hoping that I really do like this app and that it works for me. As of now I've left my review at 2 stars since I haven't had it for very long. Hopefully once I've had the app for a while I can change my review.
Great App 5/5
It does work great, very secure, easy to deposit and withdraw money and I seen results!!!
Love this app! 5/5
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.

Great motivator 5/5
By Bring the car around Jaybles
This app makes it simple to watch savings grow and plan for the future. Also, it really makes you think of more ways to save even more per month as you look at expected growth over the coming years.

Easy way to save a little cash 5/5
By Ding Kingus
This is great for low investment long term saving in my situation. Which in addition to my retirement and savings account gives me a little piece of mind not having to make each individual deposit.
Great way to get started! 5/5
This app works great, and is a easy way to start investing!
Needs some new features 4/5
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.

The only app I have that makes me money instead of taking it
Love this app! 5/5
This is my favorite app! I have always been horrible at saving money and this app has made it so easy for me; I recommend it to everyone I know!
Best App for Investing 5/5
This app is a good way to start investing specially for beginners. 👍🏼💵💰
Surprise Savings Account! 5/5
Kind forgot about it until I saw I had $460 in my round ups!
Great way to save money 4/5
Great way to put away money for savings.
My only problem is my acorns account doesn't stay connect to my regions bank account.
Solid saving/investment app! 5/5
Acorns is a very solid app for savings/investments. It's more of a beginners route to it, but a good one nonetheless. I primarily utilize my 401k for my overall savings/investment. However, I love Acorn for my short term savings goals (typically large purchases or vacations I take). It's a good way to stack away money - out of site and out of mind!
Awesome, easy way to invest! 5/5
Great App 5/5
One of the best apps I have ever used effortless and sign up and let it go
Definitely worth using. Highly recommended. 5/5
First off, I'll say, I'm not a beginner investor, nor am I a pro. But, this app absolutely does a great job of allowing your money to get some decent returns. Won't make you "rich", but works way way way better than your traditional savings account at your bank, where you get close to nothing for keeping your money there. Using this app, less than a year, I have a little over $750 saved, with $30 in referrals, $16 or so in market gains, and about $10+ in dividend payouts that have been reinvested. So you can easily see how the $1 monthly fee is worth every cent. Saving accounts will become obsolete as long as Acorns is around. With $10-20 monthly contributions, you'll see more gains. Try it!
The only way they can make Acorns any better is if they went back in time and begin to offer this in the early 90s!
Like it 5/5
Terrific app, great way to effortlessly invest 5/5
Honestly, I couldn't be happier with the way that acorns has made it so simple to invest. While the round-up feature is neat, it is secondary to the ease of depositing money directly into your investment account. I couldn't be happier with how it has worked to get me engaged with investing.
Smart, beautiful, easy 5/5
By Lepus Ignis
I love Acorns!
I love acorns. I wish so much that such a thing had existed 5,10,20 years ago when I was younger, I'd be a much wealthier person today if it had.
Acorns makes saving painless and fun. Watching my investments grow and sometimes shrink is fun - remember investing is a long game with ups and downs. The Projected Value graph under My 'Acorns Portfolio' in settings is a thing of beauty showing you why you should start saving now even if it's just a small amount, and encourages you to save more by showing how much difference a few more dollars can make over time. There are three different ways to save - manual transfers, auto debits, and 'round-ups'. I personally have a tight budget, so I skip the round-ups since it's too much of a wildcard. But you can use and turn off any of the functions with ease, so trying and finding what works for you takes little effort.
Some people say the fees are high compared to other financial vehicles, but the barrier to entry for those is so high there is a reason I've never gone that route. With Acorns you can be saving in minutes. The interest on zero dollars saved because of $1/mo in fees is also zero dollars. And my fees for this year were covered by 'Found Money' from services I was already using any way or would actually want to use.
Great job Acorns! I want everyone I care about to use this app with an eye to their future.
Stupid pop up 1/5
Only did one star because the pop up annoyed me
Had app for 7 days still not working 1/5
I downloaded this hope to start saving money but you apparently can't identify my bank, I go to your website for help and it's all trashed up and needs to be fixed just like the app, called for support and talked to a robot.........I am not happy now uninstalling app.
Awesome, easy way to save. 5/5
Title says it all. Great app
$1/month is too steep 3/5
The $1 a month sounds pretty cheap, but when your account only has a couple hundred in it, you're really only making or losing a couple cents. Sure it may be better than a savings account, but that $1 eats up any potential dividends for small accounts. Accounts with funding under $500 should be free otherwise it's not worth it. Cool idea and sweet looking app though.
Not a fan 1/5
Was a cool app till we learned that the change it was taking was from our checking account. If you want to invest money then great! This app is for you. We should have read every thing before starting. It take the rounded up change from your account and that part we missed. Within two days my account was missing $600+ and that's money we need. And it never did give me my referral money. Change does add up though.
Awesome reward for spending 5/5
I'm giving this app 5 stars, I won't become a millionaire from Acorn but this is obvious, I started Acorn because I figured rounding up loose change in what I purchased wouldn't hurt definitely for a small investment. I have see great numbers since I started with $5.00. I am now up to around $830 and can't be more excited, I haven't made a ton but at least it acts as a second savings. Great job Acorn!
Nice innovative idea. It is like piggy bank savings but money grows. Good for those who don't save money. $1 per month is a fair price.
Easy to use and fun little app.
Awesome app to invest your pennies!
By Ari Gruenberg
Awesome app. Investing essentially by accident. I wouldn't say this is the basket for all your eggs but the fact that it grows without your attention is fantastic. It's been about 5 months and I've squirreled away about $500 dollars. Very worthwhile.
Simple easy to use for novice traders 5/5
Simple easy to use for novice traders. The best part is investing from the round up from ur purchases.
