I won’t try again 1/5
I signed up because a friend told me about Acorns. However, the app won’t allow the round ups with my bank account (BMO Harris) and I have no idea why. I tried to cancel the account but says I have money transferring which I do not. Now, it’s open just to collect their fee.
Potential for a better day 5/5

I’m liking the potential
5 stars 5/5
Easy to use app.
DO NOT DOWNLOAD ACORNS! 1/5
Not worth it, literally didn’t grow anything in the time I had my accounts. Take your money and use another investment tool. Also, I closed my account a month ago and and even got an email to confirm, however today they withdrew money from my bank to invest even though the account was supposedly closed! Acorns scammed me!!

Have not gotten my rewards for purchases since September not happy about that may not continue with you guys much longer
Fraud app! 1/5
Confusion confounded, horrible app to work with. Do your self a favor, save up and buy a stick instead of investing here. Down grow your wealth. Early withdrawals will lead to 99% loss.
They don’t tell u about the fee schedule 1/5
I did not know that this costs $1 a month and %.25 of my investment when I get above 5k. This makes the app not good value for money compared to other investment alternatives. Was disappoint that that wasn’t made clear before signing up
Feels like a ripoff 1/5
I’m still trying to figure out the fees for the roundups. Trying to find more info.
Automatic withdrawal 3/5
It takes too long of a process for the money to come out of my bank account then to wait several days more to post to my Acorns account. I’d prefer if the money came out same day as I set it up to be withdrawn.
I wouldn’t recommend this app 1/5
I started using it and I had a basic subscription of $1 a month, all of a sudden I noticed that there were months that I was charge twice... my money did got some return but the subscription system seems a little sketchy..
By one star12378
Why should I use this app? ESP since you take 10% That’s basically any profit from any investment. Total BS.
Not user friendly 1/5
By waste of time givenup
I tried to set up and all I ended up is problems so I gave up and deleted the app. My daughter tried it and same thing nothing but problems. Can’t recommend this app to anyone
perfect way to save $$ 5/5
love the app
Love this app 5/5
By yes sir
The easiest and best way to invest. Nothing else is even close.
Love it! 5/5
Easiest way to save without even knowing it. I’ve accumulated over $650 just rounding up my purchases to the nearest dollar. Everyone should be using this App
Card fraud!! 4/5
I enjoyed acorns as a savings account. I’m constantly using my debit card and never save money that I should, and this kind of forced me to do just that. I accumulated about $430 after roughly 4 months and when I decided to withdraw my funds, I had card fraud on my debit card to which they had the info to. I had not done any other sort of transactions with my card that could have caused this fraud b/c I use Apple Pay which is encrypted. The only service that had my debit card info was acorns. Fortunately my bank took care of it, but I had to wait for a new card which wouldn’t have happened if acorns was more secure. Wouldn’t have canceled but once that happened I decided to close the account entirely.
You must get !!! 5/5
Great app !!! Saves money
Great Savings plan 5/5
By Keefer V
Greatest app ever!
Sign Up Birthday Input Issue 3/5
The app seems promising, but I can’t put my birthday in properly. When I scroll to my month, the app automatically scrolls back to the default “February.” Is it ok to put an incorrect birthday?
Help me do well and ditto for you all. 5/5
Time will tell.
Earn without thinking about it!
Terrible app cannot even link bank account or get help to solve any issues will not use or invest anything into this app, terrible experience
Great but.... 5/5
So I opened an acorns invest and spend account about a month ago. I set it up to have a certain amount deposited into each account once a month. Also set up my round ups to go into my invest account. We’ve ran into a bind with our regular bank account and need to move a little money from our invest account to our spend account. Apparently that is not possible?! Why have a spend account if I can’t move money from my invest account to my spend account because our main bank account has been breached?! We were looking into shutting down our main bank as this has happened four times now and we are sick of it and just getting everything deposited into our spend account but what’s the point if we can’t move our invest money to the spend account?! Other then that we love acorns and are setting up invest accounts for both our kids.
Amazing and a great idea to create! 5/5
It’s very simple to use and understand. The build of the app flows and I love it!Money management at its best thank you I appreciate what you do! Great app!
Don’t do it! 1/5
They take your money from your account and don’t buy your stocks for portfolio. When you put in a ticket they don’t investigate but give you simple BS responses.
Almost Perfect 4/5
I started using Acorns last year and it is a fantastic program. Round-ups are brilliant, the card is heavy and eye catching, and the interface is seamless. The only reason I recently moved away from Acorns is Stash. The app offers similar functionality, but with real control over where you invest with fractional investing. Stash’s interface is nowhere near as clean and elegant as Acorns, and if Acorns adds that fractional/real time investing functionality (think Acorns + Robinhood) then I’ll come back. Adding those features would make Acorns the best (imo) investing app on the market. I hope to see it.
Save money with out realizing it!!!
Amazing way to Invest, very simple and easy
Great app 5/5
Great app!! The only thing I think can improve acorns is for them to find a way to make the earn found money option an automatic thing.
It’s just too easy!! (but in a good way) 5/5
By Daddy Don-Don
I have been searching back and forth for good apps that can easily invest my money into an account, and Acorns has won me over. It is just so incredibly easy to use and very convenient to have automatic deposits. Acorns is very low risk, so if you’re looking for something to simply keep your money rolling down a hill, growing and growing as it rolls, then this app is just for you. It reinvests all of your earnings into more shares, so the only downside is you’re not really seeing the benefits of your investment crop as a cash return, but more of a lump sum of individual progress. I would definitely recommend this app, also since it features a “round-up” system. It tracks your spending and it rounds up to the nearest dollar (or whatever you set it as). Saving has never been easier!!
Saving for the family 5/5
Long time user. Acorns has helped fund our family vacation last year. We are saving again for a future trip.
By tay cross
This app finally helped me start to save. After a year of acorns, I feel I have a comfortable cushion for a rainy day. I don’t even notice the money coming out of my savings. Can’t recommend it enough!
NFS charge 1/5
Needed up with a $29 NSF charge... how about go F*** yourself...
Slow and late with funds and documents 3/5
App is slow with withdrawing money. Also late with tax documents. Said they would send my tax documents on the 15th of February. When the 15th came, they changed it to February 21st. I opened an IRA with these people. I would withdraw all of my funds if I could, but the IRA is a five-year deal.
Good luck canceling 1/5
It has been months of emails and calls trying to cancel and getting my money out of acorns. Good luck if you sign up.
Surreptitiously take your money 1/5
You’re better off auto investing in some robo fund.
Customer service is bad 1/5
I decided this app is not for me so I went to cancel it, long story short it’s been a month and they keep giving me a run around all the while it’s still not canceled and I still have a running subscription. This company will try and trap you into a paid subscription and not let you leave.
New kid on the block 5/5
But I’m looking forward doing Business with you
Not fdic insured 3/5
By A. Hifko.
I opened the ira for $2 a month. I think I am going to close the account and go to the bank as I plan to save more than 500,000.00.
The regular acorns account with the round ups used to do dividens which I do not see anymore they changed their layout completely. I wouldn’t let your account get to high. Maybe 1k at a time. You do not want to risk money due to acorns insurance.
Just ok 2/5
Not that user friendly. Confusing and no real details about investments.
A Brand New Way of Banking & Thinking 5/5
Finally feeling on top of my finances, and feeling like I am not working for only one stream of income. This is the dawn of an entirely new way of thinking and living, and the Acorns App is incredible in facilitating to a responsible outlook on finances! It’s easy, and fun!!
Won’t open! 1/5
This app is literally terrible. I try to log in multiple times a day and it always says that there is an issue on their side and they’re working on it. If it is taking a couple weeks to work on it they need to hire more people. Also I never got the $5 as promised when I signed up through a friends link. Why does this app literally NEVER open?!
Investing can be fun! 5/5
By B1G BO1 5M1L3Y
What a great app! Was hesitant at first, but now it’s nice to see that I’m investing without even knowing it. What a great educational app!
Still taking my money 1/5
I’ve been trying everything to delete my accounts. They just keep redirecting me over and over and still charge me $2 a month just to keep an empty account because they have zero customer support. DO NOT GO WITH ACORNS.
Can’t get out 1/5
Easy to sign up, near impossible to get rid of. I’ve had this app for two years and since they make closing your account nearly impossible i figured I’d just turn off the round ups and that would be that. Wrong. It auto enrolls you again every so often and you have to go back in and turn it off over and over. I wish it would just go away. Also doesn’t make you money. If you want to spend $30 to make $1.33 then this is the app for you
Great Idea but Annoying App 1/5
I love the idea of investment made easy, but I find the inability to us the app in landscape, the pushy adds to get you to sign other people up, and the other adds to be annoying.
SKECHY APP TOOK MONEY FROM YOUR BANK 1/5
It’s the worst experience I’ve ever had in investment bank! Now I close my account and switch to Robinhood! I did not made any profit yet in Acrons but already lost money because they transfer a huge amount of money (2000+) from my bank account without even noticed!! I got charge by my bank account for the overdraft fee. I called the customer service and the girl basically repeat the same sentence again and again without 0 problem solving skill. I am very disappointed!!! 10/10 DO NOT RECOMMEND!!!!
By Baby Jaga
Not worth the money per month 3/5
I do much better on my own stocks through free stock apps like Robin Hood and cash app, acorns is charging me money to lose money in the stock market.
