►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 metal barrier: ‘I just don’t have enough money to be investing.’”[4]

►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.
