I’ve posted about Acorns previously. Acorns is an investing app that round up your daily purchases and automatically invests the ‘change’ into a diversified portfolio of ETFs. Acorns makes it cheaper to invest, but it’s not free. It will cost you $1 per month for accounts under $5,000, or 0.25% per year for accounts over $5,000. Individuals under 24 years of age and those attending college pay no fees.You can read more about the app here. They also have a ‘Found Money’ rewards program that works like a cashback portal, but the cash back is invested instead.
Signup & Referral Bonus
Acorns has a $5 signup bonus. If you’re interested, you can sign up here with my referral link.
But what makes it even better this month, is that they are also offering a $600 bonus when 12 friends you invite, start investing this month. That’s in addition to the $5 per referral that you normally earn. Plus if you’ll be pleased to know that they will also plant an oak tree with OneTreePlanted for each new friend you invite. That’s a great referral bonus, but you only get it if you reach the number of 12 referrals. Otherwise, it’s just $5 per referral. This is similar to the bonus they offered last month, but you can do it again.
Friends must sign up on or after 12/01/2017 and make their first investment by 12/31/2017. Bonuses paid out by 1/15/2018.
