Acorns Investing App, Get $5 Signup Bonus Plus $1,050 With 10 Referrals This Month

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 $1,000 bonus when 10 friends you invite, start investing in January. 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 10 referrals. Otherwise, it’s just $5 per referral. This is similar to the bonus they offered last month, but it it now much better.

Offer Terms

Friends must sign up on or after 1/01/2018, have an account in good standing, and make their first investment by 1/31/2018. Bonuses are paid out by 2/15/2018. Referrals who close their account before 2/01/2018, or make an investment that results in a chargeback, will not qualify for the promotion.

Guru’s Wrap-Up

The app is an easy way to get into investing and it costs just $1 per month if your account balance is less than $5,000. I have had an account for almost a year and so far returns have been decent. I have a market gain of 15.4% and total gain after fees of 12.58%. Although not a great rate, it is better than I expected with these type of apps.

If you sign up later in the month then it’s probably difficult to get 10 referrals for this $1K bonus, but it should still be worth it. You do get the $5 bonus and hopefully they run this same promotion for February, as they’ve done in the past 3 months.

  3. I’ve been using the Acorns app for the past while now. It runs in the background while investing spare change. You’d be surprised how much that adds up to! The found money is also an amazing feature where you buy from a large variety of stores/companies through a link in the app, and they invest in your acorns account! Great app for anyone looking to invest money, save, and earn.
    Get a free $5 in your account when you sign up through my referral code! Good luck!
