Start with just your spare change and join over 1 million who have taken steps to improve their future. It only takes minutes! ►FEATURES◄ ○ Painlessly invest your spare change into a diversified portfolio of ETFs of over 7,000 stocks and bonds automatically ○ Easily invest more - with Recurring Investments (daily/weekly/monthly), One-Time Investments, Referrals, and Found Money! ○ Watch your progress – check in on your account from anywhere ○ SIPC Protected – up to $500,000 is protected against fraud so your money is secure ○ Stay educated – Gain access to our online personal finance publication, Grow Magazine ○ Withdraw anytime – at no charge. ►WHAT THE WORLD IS SAYING◄ FORBES: “The app makes investing effortless.”[1] ABC NEWS: “If you set aside just $5 every couple of days you would have set aside $1,000 in a year.”[2] WIRED: “Acorns simplified the often tedious and complex process of investing.”[3] US NEWS: “Acorns offers a unique solution to overcoming the mental barrier: ‘I just don’t have enough money to be investing.’”[4] ►TRUSTED AND INTELLIGENT◄ ○ 256-bit encryption to keep your information safe and secure ○ Automatically rebalances your portfolio ○ Automatically re-invests your dividends for you ○ Diversified Portfolio includes hundreds of international companies, corporate and government bonds, and real estate. ►PRICE◄ 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. This app is operated by Acorns Advisers, LLC, an SEC Registered Investment Advisor.

Acorns - Invest Spare Change from Purchases app reviews

  • 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

    By Mike2377
    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.

    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

    By CantbeVeee
    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.
  • $$👍 5/5

    By Gargamellow
    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

  • Simple way to save 5/5

    By Wallaxe
    Nothing great but nice way to save.
  • So Simple, and So Effective! 5/5

    By jsmmrs79
    A very simple way to save, and invest!
  • Still new 2/5

    By paolathesportschick
    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

    By Wachukern
    It does work great, very secure, easy to deposit and withdraw money and I seen results!!!
  • Love this app! 5/5

    By Reiiandbd
    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.
  • Effective way to invest pocket change 5/5

    By Andruw Hart
    This app is very cool! If you're new to the stock market those is a great way to get started. The app is very reliable and the UI is gorgeous.
  • Amazing and easy! 5/5

    By Eatsleepgolf712
    As a finance student, investing is something that is very important to me. It's important that I invest easily and affordably, and this is exactly the program I needed!
  • Great way to save and earn 5/5

    Great app to save some money
  • Great app 5/5

    By Britgirl1
    Very impressed with this app that is really easy to use. It's amazing how quickly spare change can grow into funds for investing! Highly recommend this if you want to have a little nest egg!
  • Simply awesome 5/5

    By Pascal
    Investing on Auto-Pilot!!! Just do it! You will be surprised how much you can invest in a short period time. Excellent!
  • 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.
  • Love it 5/5

    By Delgado, A
    Extra change has accumulated to $300 in three months.
  • We love Acorns 5/5

  • The best way to invest without effort 5/5

    By DdotRoq1
    I love this app. A friend recommended I try it and I did, next thing I know, a month later and I have over $100 invested. I would absolutely recommend.
  • 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

    By b4uhad1
    This app works great, and is a easy way to start investing!
  • Needs some new features 4/5

    By MdotR0
    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.
  • Invest Smart 5/5

    By Baskerville xoxo
    The only app I have that makes me money instead of taking it
  • Love this app! 5/5

    By Avz156
    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

    By K3L0g
    This app is a good way to start investing specially for beginners. 👍🏼💵💰
  • Surprise Savings Account! 5/5

    By Kamakamacamelion
    Kind forgot about it until I saw I had $460 in my round ups!
  • Great way to save money 4/5

    By Anderson-89
    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

    By CLB8585
    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

    By CPS_Lex
    Highly recommended!
  • Great App 5/5

    By Gmoneysr
    One of the best apps I have ever used effortless and sign up and let it go
  • Definitely worth using. Highly recommended. 5/5

    By Michaelarguello
    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!
  • Yyyyiiiiisssssss!!! 5/5

    By epst13n
    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

    By Genesis1234
    Nice app
  • Terrific app, great way to effortlessly invest 5/5

    By joshuag
    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

    By Cj1102
    Only did one star because the pop up annoyed me
  • Had app for 7 days still not working 1/5

    By Scotty2hottyyo
    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

    By Mrniceisnice
    Title says it all. Great app
  • $1/month is too steep 3/5

    By Deegzter
    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

    By Lizzy1304
    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

    By KHarry12
    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!
  • Innovative 5/5

    By AmShy87
    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.
  • Painfree 5/5

    By artslick
    Easy to use and fun little app.
  • Awesome! 5/5

    By RunMamaATL
    Awesome app to invest your pennies!
  • Awesome 5/5

    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

    By Arnqmr
    Simple easy to use for novice traders. The best part is investing from the round up from ur purchases.
