They kept taking and taking 1/5
Acorns took money from me after I unsubscribed and furthermore I did not see the money that was going into my acorns account I tried to contact their support team and they never answered me and this is why I am rating them very badly.
A great way to start investing, for me and my family. 5/5
Started using Acorns to help invest better. I am a lazy investor, but still wanted my money to grow. Now I use Acorns and my only regret is not downloading it sooner in my life to use it. 6 months in and I already see gains of up to 6% on my invested money. With Early I have set up investment accounts my children, giving them the opportunity to have large sums of money at 21 to use as they please. I also have set up an IRA account through Later. While I could have done all this without Acorns, it made it MUCH easier and simpler to set up.
Stay away from Meme stocks and get Acorns instead!
Impossible to reach your funds 1/5
They have done everything they can to ensure I can cancel my subscription or take my funds out they have no help horrible app
Acorn is better than any of the stick that I know. I’m enjoying it, plus you get to save a lot. 5/5
Acorn is a good app to use to invest it helps save a lot of money.
This app.... 5/5
This app is great. Just get it and be smart about it
Easy. Start yesterday. Keep adding money and forget about it
Negative returns in a thriving market 2/5
Thought this would be a great app and maybe in the VERY long run it is. But on a 612.00 investment I have made 3.00in dividends in six months. With a gross return of 8.12 total. I would be ok with that, if I haven’t paid 3.00 a month or 18.00 total in fees. I would say you are definitely better and will get a better return than .75% and much better than -.5% with the fees in any other investment app if you do your homework.
locked out changing my account. I want to update my password, etc. and cannot. 3/5
By Winter Glass
Instead I now have message appearing on my screen that say OIOIOI
To make matters worse I can’t edit anything in the App Store and now must be creative either typing in my iMessages or notes just to send inquires.
Additionally this OIOIOI message appears to be an system message from Apple’s internal server.
Acorn app 5/5
By Siamak Arian
It’s a wonderful app for investment,so easy and awesome,I love it.
Not enough liquidity. 3/5
For few days now the economy trending down way. For investors like us who want to buy more share are having trouble since when we deposit money it takes 3 days and by the time it execute it gap up. I hope they solve this problem. What happen if the economy drop 25% and I want to buy more shares??? What happen if the next day it go up 10% after the deposit.
I’ve been trying to unsubscribe and it doesn’t unlink you hate this investment because it’s not worth a dime n takes and never gives
Acorns a savings account at best! 1/5
I have invested approximately $1,300 so far this year and and have gotten about a 21/2% return so far.
Forget about it!!! 5/5
By Edward Colon
It’s a great app!!! Instead of putting change in a jar, you invest it and in a few years, that jar change will be in the thousands, and get this, you don’t have to roll it up and take it to a bank. :)
Poor customer service - took money after I closed my account. 1/5
I tried closing my account & got an email confirmation that my account was closed. I received emails weeks later that my investments would be resuming, so I went back in, unlinked my checking account & tried closing my account again. They took money out of my checking account anyway after attempting to close twice & unlinking my account. I contacted customer support & even sent them the email I received over a month prior that my account was supposed to be closed & they would not refund the money they took. They also said they had no record that I tried closing my account (again, I sent them their email confirmation that it was) & had to have them manually close it. Overall, I’m not happy & very disappointed. I closed the account considering rejoining in the future when I’m in a better position to do so but after this I would highly recommend not trusting them with your financial information.
Still learning the app…. Good 4/5
By Daddy's beloved
The app is good, but there are a couple of things I’m not clear about. For instance, I used to see my round up activity but not anymore it seems. It’s not current and I know I’ve been using my card. At any rate, overall it’s good to know I’m saving especially in these uncertain times.
Round Ups? 1/5
This app was great until my round-ups quick working for no apparent reason and no matter what I try I can’t get them to work again. Customer support no help, can’t get them to contact me back.
Poor service 1/5
E-mailed acorn and let them know I had an issue with there round ups and never heard a thing from them I’m considering just taking my money and deleting this app.
Do not download ‼️‼️ 1/5
I was charged by a third party after signing up and connecting my bank account
Investing that even a Shiba Inu can do 5/5
By Chanson day and the rest
This is the most self explanatory and down to remarry investing app I’ve ever used. It picks out your portfolios, auto invests, sets up retirement accounts, and even rounds up your expenses to make your future full of compounded interest! It’s like switching from a Model T with a manual transmission to a Tesla Model S with autonomous driving.
Lock me out my account 1/5
Lock me out my account.. told a supervisor won’t be available to help me for 3 business days
A week later and still waiting for a call back
Horrible customer service policies 1/5
I’ve referred 5 people to this company, two in the last month. My friends were given the directions and i was available for any questions. They didn’t have any questions and after 1 day they texted me back saying they completed the verification process.
I didn’t see my $100 referral bonus so i inquired. The representative said everything looked good however i needed to wait until the 15th to get my bonus.
So i called back today (15th) and one of my two referrals didn’t make an investment. All he needed to do was do a one time deposit and he didn’t know, nor asked me any questions. He just said he was finished with setting up and verifying his account.
When i called to confirm and find out where my bonus was, the representative from acorns said my buddy needed to deposit before may 31st. He said he’d done it all so i believed him. Now we find one minor issue and i CANNOT get my bonus trying to help people and acorns as well. I’m withdrawing all my money from them and looking for a new app since acorns couldn’t give me the slightest help to give me a one day extension to get my buddy to invest $5 now.
I’m taking my 5 referrals away from acorns and have no intention to help them i any way.
Needs iPad App 3/5
The Acorns service works well enough, and the iPhone app is nice. However, many other services are just as good and their app supports iPad. In this day and age, any financial service app would and should support both iPhones and iPads.
No no NOOO 1/5
Here is my issue. They automatically sign you up for the most expensive subscription they have and do it in a way you don’t even notice you’re paying for the app. They also don’t tell you WHAT you’re investing in or give you options at least. I mean you’re basically just feeding money into and account that will make a doller a year and paying them to do it. The cost of the app is probably more than you’d make on the investment!! I want my money back I feel cheated
Don’t do it, even for the bonus don’t. 1/5
I’ve had them for a couple of years and they are terrible. Can’t get a hold of anyone and plus their fees are ridiculous. Go to Stash.
By far the BEST! 5/5
Acorns has most definitely made it easier on me in terms of saving money. In general they offer so many unique options as well as processes that can pretty much fit anyone’s schedule and you can always customize and change the depositing process to however it would best fit your life routine. I’ve always been pretty vulnerable anytime I have any extra cash in my pocket/account and was never good in holding in to that money to furthermore save it... Acorns has completely changed that aspect of my life for the better and I’ve never been able to save money the way Acorns has allowed me to do so ever since I was introduced to them. Whether a person is or isn’t good with saving their money or organizing a personal budget... there is absolutely no way anyone and everyone can’t benefit from this app, there’s no way you can go wrong :)
Unauthorized Changes to Account Login 1/5
Two Factor Authentication was activated on my account without my authorization. I prefer to use my pin to login and when I tried to turn off the feature I was advised it was mandatory to protect my account and could not be disabled. This is not true because my Daughter has an Acorns account and the 2FA has not been enabled.
I do not wish to support a service that will not allow me to select the features I wish to add to my account but instead makes unauthorized changes under the guise of “account protection”.
Why does before you download the app it says 4+ but when u try to set it up you have to be 18...

Why can’t I get into my bank 2/5
I have tried multiple times to get into the PNC bank through plaid. And every time it saying currently cannot connect and link accounts.
By Scorpio S.
I’m thinking about taking my money out and investing somewhere else the subscription fee is steady going up!
Great way to invest! 5/5
So easy to use. Set it up to round up purchases. Set up to take out as little as $1 up to whatever you are comfortable with every week or every day or once a month. Easy stuff. This app works!!!
A must have 5/5
Everyone should this app. It’s the best financial app on the market. I love it
I’m new in investing, so far I’ve enjoyed it and hope to grow with acorns. I hope it all keeps on getting better specially with the referrals bonuses.
Great way to save money 5/5
Definitely like that fact that this app was purely created to help those of us that won’t have social security later. Downside, having to get penalized for taking the money out. I wish they could find alternative ways to make this option free of charge. Maybe use the membership that we pay to keep the app so that we don’t get penalized for withdraw? But wishful thinking.
Great except… 5/5
By Juju tantrum
I can’t link my bank to round up. Annoying.
Opening the App 2/5
By De Veaux
I’ve used Acorns in the past, so I decided to reactivate my account. However, since then, I’ve been having issues opening the app to view my account.
Grateful for this App 5/5
Helped me start a portfolio without jumping through hoops. More importantly without having to pay money to some financial advisor. It’s super easy to use and has definitely helped me make/save money.
Worst investing app 1/5
I know people gave Robinhood bad reviews but I trust them more than I trust acorns. Total red flags from the first time I logged in. It asked for all of my personal information, only to shut me out. And when I requested for a password change I never received an email. I looked it up on Reddit and apparently this app has been hacked and they have been rerouting the password reset page to someone else. So know they have access to your email information. I had to change my bank account, reset all my passwords and log my accounts out of any other known devices. And to top it off acorns doesn't have a customer service number on their page, you have to Google the contact number. For a "well raved app" how do you not have a better team handling this?! Especially when dealing with money!
Very expensive hidden fees 1/5
Most people will not see this upfront, but Acorns has massive hidden fees for transfers of securities. They also do not follow the ACATS system that all other brokerages follow. Hence any interaction for asset transfers is manual and extremely time consuming.
Moreover their UI is extremely confusing and is designed to make you invest in it with minimal signals on investment performance. Stay away from this company as much as you can.
For US citizens only 1/5
By Thekra Ali
They should’ve stated that in the app details
By Kristopher s Neighbors
As someone who is looking for every way possible to make and save money i can say i actually enjoy this app ive watched my money (slowly) but surely grow on its own and its been an experience to watch ... i get better gains from managing my own stocks on sofi but its nice to have an app that makes money for me that i dont have to micro manage constantly btw if your interested in investing in your owns stocks message me 3465774351 i can help get you started
Annoying ads 1/5
Too bad. I might have tried this app
By Adeyemi Ojomo
Love the app
has been charging my account for 3 years! 1/5
I haven’t used Acorn in years! It locked me out of my account and has been charging my account w/ their subscription for the past 3 years! I want ALL my money back!
Three + plus years, 13.39% performance on a conservative portfolio. 5/5
Never had more easy, simple fun making money.Returns are great, security is great, website is terrific. Also, very responsive and flexible as a broker.
Love the app, but UI could be better 4/5
There are a few things that could be better about the UI, like easier to look at the performance of your investments from certain time frames & having the more important things easier to get to with less clicks
Amazing app 5/5
The things this app gives me the opportunity to do in my life is astounding. DOWNLOAD THIS NOW
I wish CapitalOne linkage was allowed 3/5
By Hugh J. Mungus
I like the idea of Acorns. The round up feature is what really sets it apart from all of the other robo-advisor platforms.
However, the main issue that I have is that I cannot link my CapitalOne credit card on Acorns. I believe this is an issue with CapitalOnes not allowing third party access, thus it is impossible to add on Acorns. This is the card I use the most (because of excellent rewards) and the fact that I cannot use it for Acorns is a drag.
Yes, I can manually count and add “spare change” total but that kind of defeats the purpose of the round up feature.
If this is ever fixed, I would love this app even more and give it 4-stars.
Now, if we had an option to customize our allocations, like for example 50% VOO, 50% VTI, that would make it a 5-star app for me. Until then, 3-stars unfortunately.
Monthly fee eats most if not all profit 2/5
The app is who makes the most money. The monthly fee eats most if not all of your profit. Investing spare change is a myth. To make money you’re forced to invest a lot more. Just overcome the monthly fee.
