The acorns system in general is pretty good. Can't complain. HOWEVER the app is constantly running in the background for absolutely no reason destroying my battery life. Tried to force stop it, it wouldn't die. The app seems like straight up Spyware after the latest update. Uninstalled it, never installing it again. I'll just use the website.

I'm still broke, don't know how to invest, and from the promo I was supposed to get, my PayPal still looking like,"Where the money?"

They take money when they want, not when scheduled.
I had my account set up for round ups and the reoccurring monthly payments but they were taking $5 out every two days even when I didn't spend any money, I also lost $210 to thin air in 2 years. They just take money from you whenever they feel like it and if you're not investing thousands you may get pennies from your investments. Totally not worth the time and money.

If I could give this app zero stars, I would. My account got compromised and money was stolen from me. Come to find out someone used my card to buy something on Xbox - which I don't own. It took them a week to get back to me, and a full month to come to the conclusion that I stole my own money for a game on a console I don't own, on an account I don't have. The only good part about this app, is that you get a metal card. Even the investment part of this app sucks.

Investing involves risk including loss of principal. Image is for illustrative purposes only & shows hypothetical account balance growth of an account & does not represent an actual or typical client experience. For important disclosure regarding this graph, please carefully review the information found on the in-app 'potential' screen or go to https://www.acorns.com/disclosures/. Diversification and asset allocation do not guarantee a profit, nor do they eliminate the risk of loss of principal. Compounding, generally, is the growth of principal investments due to the reinvestment of dividends without withdrawing funds from the account. Acorns investment accounts do not pay interest, so the impact of compounding may be limited. It is not an investing strategy and does not assure positive performance nor does it protect against losses. It does not take into account market volatility and fluctuations that will impact the value of any investment account.
