This used to be a great app but the current practices to withdraw from linked accounts at times without your knowledge with now non transparent and hard to find details of what was withdrawn and when and why there was withdrawal, along with their intentional efforts of making it difficult in the app to control your accounts and transactions as well as hiding your transaction history and making it difficult to access clearly is a sabotage of your privacy , which has made this company, the app and all it’s business affiliates toxic and unreliable. I strongly recommend folks to disconnect and save their money from such unreliable and non transparent company. Trust is something you can’t put on them at this point. Why subscribe when you can open accounts that help you grow your money with dignity and transparency unlike Acorns as of today. If they change tomorrow and beacons better with transparency and control then I am sure folks will appreciate it but for now, it’s unsafe.
Cannot deposit money into my spend account. It keeps mentioning PayPal when there is no correlation
I’m in my early 20s, almost mid 20s. I’ve had Acorns for almost 2 1/2 years, so I feel that I can state with enough certainty how the app is. I highly recommend it for anyone who is looking to build a savings account and to have a sense of security for long-term growth. I started the same as most people with $5 in September of 2018. As of January 20, 2020, I now have $2,246 (a total of 29% ROI). I average about $65-75 a month in automatic deposits since I use the 2x option for the last year 1/2. Listen, is it the highest ROI? No. And it won’t be and I expect this. However, when you think of the idea of this coming from PENNIES, then you realize how powerful of a savings account/emergency account this could be. This is money I would have never saved myself and just happens to be there because of the round-up idea. (To the highest dollar). But when you combine this account with other investments like Roth IRA/ 401k/ generic investing in Schwab/Robinhood/ etc, how can you possibly go wrong?! It’s an automatic investment tool that grows you a nice cushion! I also really enjoy the plethora of business that you can collect cash back from. Sure, it’s not automatic and it’s not the quickest, but it will happen. And since 2018, the number of companies partnering with Acorns has grown 10-fold. So if you are someone who wants to add an investment account, save for an emergency nest egg, wants to see long term growth potential, or just wants an investment account that’s completely hands-off, I highly recommend Acorns and continue too for people who ask. The pros (in my honest opinion) greatly outweigh the cons.
Love this App 🤍🤩
I have recurring contributions set up for daily withdrawals. It takes a full week from when the transfer is initiated to when you own the stock you purchased. If the prices increase in the week it takes, you end up getting less for your money. Robinhood gives me $1000 credit to purchase instantly.
Looking for long term investment... Acorn is a great choice ... for me and my family just pennies a day
My account was hacked and someone stole my money and after several messages Acorns has not done anything to contact me or rectify the situation. Be careful before giving your account information, as they cannot secure your personal information. I will continue to leave one star ratings each day until my situation has been rectified.
Opened my account over a year ago only invested $51.56 few got locked out of my account forgot it existed. Meanwhile, within a couple months, my credit card that was linked got lost so nothing else was investing. For over a year, I made $0.39 in dividends but my bank account was charged $1 every single month for over a year. I basically donated to acorns and they told me there was no way they could refund me the subscription even if I forfeited my measly $0.39. I should’ve caught the charge a while ago, but I expected much better customer service....
They don’t put any money into stocks for you, it just takes money out of your bank, I asked for a withdraw and they never gave me my money back after saying 3-6 business days it was a week after I never got my money back. Scam
Still haven’t been able to connect my bank to this app. Emailed and looked for answers as to why I can’t and nothing. Basically it’s become a digital paperweight on my dashboard
