dont do it 1/5
when you want to cancel the subscription, its dam bear impossible
No round ups !! 3/5
Poor communications with bank. Keeps stopping my rounds up to incorrect info from bank
Thieves of energy and effort 1/5
I’ve brought seven or eight people to this company and always just barely happened to miss out on rewards for my energy and efforts in bringing more people to invest. Feel like a fool.
World's best savings!!! 5/5
By mrs ken
I have been a single mom for over 20+ years. Now all or most of my kids are all off to college. When I found Acorns it was very, very (130,000) small and I was worried if I could trust their word. Every penny counts when your a mom. I was uneducated about stocks, savings, CD funds ECT... I wanted to learn about it in simple terms. Acorns did just that. I couldn't save a penny before acorns. Now I am I able to save Christmas money every single year now. I love that they put the 5 plus days to get your money also. Emergencies happened everyday as a parent. Saving with what??? LMBO;) This app has taught me so much. It also teaches me that savings is not to be touched Till your goal is met. You never know that your saving everyday for a stress free Christmas. Thank you guys for making something that allows me to have a better life. #cheriemcrae #justiceforcherie
Suspicious and fraudulent 1/5
The app wouldn’t allow me to cancel my subscription. I had to contact them several times because every time I tried cancelling, the app would freeze. When I tried contacting them, it kept me in the que at the number 16th spot for over an hour. This is a very good concept, but the execution of this company is horrible. Your better off just opening a traditional account through fidelity or Schwab and investing through their companies. Guarantee you will get a better response then this useless company. Also, pretty sure most of their high reviews are fake.
Hard to access your money. 1/5
The idea is great and I’ve had it for two years now. I have the Now/Later accounts and a checking, when I tried to take a large amount out from the ATM I was told the most I could take out each day is $500 and to transfer it will take 2-3 days. The inability to have full access to my money is unsatisfactory and I closed all the accounts.
Account closed and unsubscribed… still charging 1/5
Closed my account after I realized it cost money to use the app. Unsubscribed back in august and was charged $5 randomly. Opened the app back up and they had resubscribed me. Do NOT download. Gonna have to go through the bank to block these charges now. Shady company. Definitely no chance of me coming back now.
Great app!!! 5/5
Best app to save some spare money. I’m glad a join acorns.
Great way to save change! 3/5
By ten gram mass
It’s a great
Idea but you scammed me by increasing the fee to $3 a month. I am now likely to end my subscription. Unfortunate that you couldn’t just raise it to $2 or even less. Scam
Very Confusing 2/5
App is not user friendly
By Ripped off 2021
I closed my account and they, out of the blue, charged me with the monthly subscription. After contacting customer service, they said they would issue refund and they never did.
Very shady at best.
Awful Customer Service 1/5
By 💙 Alura 💙
A few months ago, I had made an Acorns account. I didn’t fully finish the setup process. After a while I had forgot about the app. But today, I realized they charged me $5 this month. Which is weird because they never charged me the previous months. So why now all of a sudden? My bank account wasn’t even verified! Well, I go to customer support and explain my situation to Karishma Gupta. To sum it up, I told her that I’m struggling financially at the moment and cannot afford this subscription so I would like to get a refund. She dismisses me and just says she can close the account to avoid any further charges. I kindly ask again why I cannot get a refund for this as it’s odd for them to randomly charge me this month and not the others. She tells me to provide a screenshot of the money being removed. After I send it, she says the transaction wasn’t able to go through as my bank account isn’t verified. Yet I showed proof that it did? How was it “not able to go through” but my bank account says the transaction has already been processed? It doesn’t make any sense to me. I feel that this app has potential. But if you cannot make sure that your customers are satisfied, that’s a problem. Me requesting a refund wasn’t even that big of an issue, that should have been an easy fix. You guys are just finessing people. Not that it matters to you but I don’t think I will return to this app even when I can afford it. The customer service is just not worth it. Nothing will get solved. I hope this review helps someone, and that the next person has a better experience than I did.
TERRIBLE APP. I DO NOT SUGGEST IT TO ANYONE. FIND AN APP LIKE THIS THAT DOES CRYPTO INSTEAD. YOU’LL THANK ME LATER
Round up 4/5
By Old flyboy
I really like the round up Option because every time I spend money the change goes directly into savings which is invested in what they feel is best at the time So I don’t even mess anything!
By enzo 1447
Ur app iz trash just speaking for myself it was ok In the beginning but I really didn’t have any use for it anymore so I wanted to cancel my subscription I tried from the app didn’t work I just kept getting a spinning wheel and it went on forever so I closed the app and 2 days later I got a charge for 50$ I didn’t waste anytime I took it as a loss tried again to cancel again and again until I called them was on hold for nearly 30 min just get disconnected or hung up on or forgot about I finally got the cancel I was needing USE THIS APP AT IR OWN RISK
Takes more money than gives or help invest than I have
Steal your money 1/5
Even after canceling subscription (worthless) and closing my account. They still kept charging me money for their subscription””.
Called Customer service and won’t refund me my money-
Bunch of a thieves 1/5
By Guio Vanni
Exorbitant fees, no customer service, robbing millennials in broad daylight (which is absolutely normal), these guys work against you. Not for you. Whatever gains you make over the course of investing with them are gone with whatever it is they charge you. I urge everyone to stop investing altogether as these guys work for solely one person, the ultra rich. Half the time I see the chart they project, it’s inaccurate, and wrong. I wish I could sue them for misleading information. Stay far, far away from these crooks.
Acorns helps 5/5
Help me save and grow my money for my retirement which is hard to do nowadays
Returns have never been good 1/5
I used the app for 3 years with at least a couple thousand dollars just to see how it did and it honestly seems like there is no thought at all out into these portfolios. They happily take your $1-$5 from you and invest your money in whatever and it usually performs about 25% worse than the S&P. I don’t recommend this to anyone not even just to use for roundups.
I joined Acorn a few years ago and had been very pleased. A few months ago my Acorn debit card had been compromised. I have made multiple efforts to get in touch
with support to get a new card (I am being charged $3 per month for this feature) and have yet to hear back from anyone. In the past when I had a question I heard back from someone within a day. I am seriously considering closing my account because of this.
Impossible to quit 1/5
By Ligmah bawhl$
I didn’t love the app so I pulled out my money and tried to end everything. They still pull out money out of my account after trying to cancel. Just overall frustrating trying to quit this app
Don’t see 4.7 as a rating for me 2/5
More like 2.5 a savings account is almost as good very low dividend as far as I’m concerned
Acorns isn’t worth the hassle. 1/5
Better off using cash app and chime for your banking and investing needs.
An absolute scam 1/5
I thought acorns would be a good idea since I was interested in investing but had little money to do so. However, acorns is nothing more than a way to scam the little people. They pulled from my account in violation of the original monthly agreement and then sent the money back with a “oops sorry” email. They then proceeded to “accidentally” double charge monthly fees. I was fed up. I closed my account and a few days later money for my nonexistent acorns subscription was taken out again. I have not yet been able to reach a real person about this issue and and I now have to get a new debit card so they are no longer able to pull from my account whenever they please. PLEASE DO NOT TRUST THIS COMPANY. Save up money on your own to invest in the right stocks after reasonable research.
Great way to start! 5/5
Set it and forget it! The easy way to start investing!
Slow as molasses 2/5
I transferred money over a week ago, still says it's "in progress". They make it difficult to delete all your accounts to remove the subscription fee. My account has been "closing" for over an hr now! Moving to a different platform
By Penny pinch
ACORN was a great start for new investors. But the $3 monthly fee makes it not worth it. How do you justify that kind of fee when the average account holder only has a $1000 balance.
Verify my Bank 2/5
I downloaded the app went through registration and wake up two days later having not put any money in here yet and my account is in the negative with a withdrawal from Acorns. Idk what happened but it made me delete the app and I have to disconnect my card but it won’t let me disconnect my card very unusual and expected a better experience.
Great way to start a IRA & save big!!! 5/5
Best APP yet!
Great way to start a IRA & automatic extra savings account, then pull your tax report every January to make sure your report the earnings at tax time!!!
Por eliminar la cuenta 1/5
Elimine mi cuenta hace tres semanas y me an cobrado tres solares 🤬 cuando antes de eliminarme me encargué de dejar todo en orden para no tener ningún cargo pendiente.
Not worth it 1/5
Not worth it. You will lose more money than it’s worth. The 3 dollars I earned in a month, it takes it out for the subscription. Invest in something different like your 401k
By Faeku Music
My Subscription was supposed to have been canceled for months already, yet I found in my bank account a $3 charge to here for the monthly subscription. App breaks every time I try to cancel it again. They had stopped taking payment, but have now resumed? What gives? I will report this app if this continues.
Monthly Fee 1/5
I have seen the monthly fee go from $1.00 to $3.00 before you know it will be $5.00. Enough is enough I’m closing my account.
Great app to build and put away money. 5/5
Great app to build and put away money
Just saving money 5/5
Helps me do it so simple
By Ah Jann
Ended up deleting my account because i put a few hundred dollers in and i talked to about 5 different people but was never able to withdraw my money. the. tried to recover it all my money was gone. THIS COMPANY STOLE A FEW HUNDRED DOLLERS FROM ME. I should honestly go after them for my money maybe i will one day.
Not working 1/5
The app has not been working can y’all please fix it
This app is great 5/5
By Agent Animal Lover
I love this app so much. I love how it rounds up my savings and helps me save money. It’s a great emergency fund if I ever need it.
3.08 % total gain / loss since February.
Might as well be putting your money in a local credit union.
Horrible customer service 1/5
Do not open a checking account! They are the worst at customer service and will keep your account locked for weeks. Highly do not recommend using them for banking
Bad news 1/5
Absolutely not worth the money and they won’t let you close your account without a very hard time getting in contact
Increased cost 2/5
I know that everyone is increasing prices everywhere and I just saw they’re charging more now out of my bank account. Unless you save hundreds of dollars a month in acorns, it’s not a reasonable charge. Taking my money (if there’s anything left-probably not) because the amount they charge outweighs any money I’ve saved with them. I will be moving it into Robinnhood instead. At least they don’t charge me monthly for anything.
Great idea, terrible app layout. I also think it steals money. I was using “aggressive” investing and I noticed that all the stocks my money was invested in each went up like 6% on the day. However, the app showed that I actually lost money that day??? Makes no sense.
Horrible Costly Service 1/5
By Nico III
Would not recommend the app or service. It’s costly and provides no value with tremendous fees if you try to transfer YOUR money.
STAY CLEAR OF ACORNS !!!!!!! 1/5
Refferal bonus reffered and paid my people to do it my account says I’m not getting my 630$ I’m filing a BBB conpaint and contacting the AG also misleading and liers on there programs !!!! !!! STAY CLEAR OF THEM
Favorite App In The World!!!!!!!!!! 5/5
Just wanted to take a bit of time and say what an amazing App this is! Fantastic platform to save, earn, grow, and invest money for yourself, kids, grandkids, nieces, or nephews! Just a genius way to teach people to save money for the future! Thank you Acorns and all that you are! Amazing!!!!!!!
It’s ok but not life changing 1/5
Sure, saving is good. But the returns from the app is not as good as say investments in crypto or other bank accounts
Won’t let me finish set up! 4/5
Like everyone I was super excited to start using this app. I started my set up through the mint budgeting app and when I downloaded the acorns app to finish the set up process. It wouldn’t load past the text message code verification screen I’m just left on this buffering screen for at most 30 minutes before I give up and exit the app. Still would love using this app once this issue is fixed.
