WHO IS ACORNS?
Acorns is a micro investing app. You can make automatic daily, weekly, or monthly investments of any amount. No minimums. No trade fees. Only $1, $2, or $3 per month until you have $1 million invested. You can do fun stuff like Roundups which I love in particular. Roundups are like saving your pocket change. Since we are living in a digital era we don’t usually carry cash so this concept is awesome! You simply link the credit cards you are using (to earn miles/points of course) and Acorns tracks your charges and roundups up each transaction. When that amount equals $5 in roundups it will withdraw $5 from your linked checking. You literally are saving and investing and don’t even know it’s happening. I love checking my Acorns app and seeing all the money that just poof, shows up in my account without me even noticing it’s gone. Pocket change savings is powerful!
I started Acorns last October because I was looking for a way to easily save for my son’s summer camp. In less than a year, I’ve saved over $800 and never noticed it gone. I’m hooked now! For me, I picked a particular goal and then just let Acorns do the work. It’s been so fun and I’ve over achieved my goal of $625 for my son’s camp in less than a year. Pretty good pocket change! I honestly believe the reason Acorns is offering this promotion is they know how hooked you’ll get once you start saving/investing with them. If you are a big time investing type, you certainly will not be hooked. Just play to earn your cash! Acorns in my opinion is really geared to middle class inexperienced investors with small amounts of money to risk. I love the fact that if I get scared at any point, I can take my money all out that day! So your money isn’t trapped in an investment vehicle that you can’t access at any time. It’s almost liquid! It takes a few days for it to be transferred to your linked bank account.
Now back to the fun promo! If you are ready to jump in and invest $1, you’re ready to play! I’ve read the terms and conditions of this promotion and I see no where a minimum investment is required. So you just need to join, via my link (helping me towards my $1,000) and then grab your referral link and blast out a message on Facebook, email or just tell 12 friends. If they all join before 5/31/18, you’ll earn $1,000 in your Acorns account. Sounds too easy! That’s what I thought!
