Anybody else have a really difficult time trying to withdraw their money? I'm still waiting on $400+ after over a month, and they didn't think to request additional identity verification until a week ago. Even had a call with customer support about it to get the issue fixed, was quoted 1-2 business days, and I'm /still/ waiting.

F this app, they will not stop taking the $5 from my account no matter what I do to unsubscribe. Acorns is a joke. I give it no stars.

Worst investment platform ever, if I could give no star I would. They sent me a message to invite 3 people and get some reward.I invited those people within the stipulated time and acorns refused to give me the reward even after I called multiple times and they promised to do so.

Blindly invest and difficult to cancel / close account
Cool app and idea but it seems as if there is no actual investment management. It’s more profitable to put $5 into a stock and manage it yourself (with minimal to no experience regarding investments and trading) It’s annoying to access your own money, difficult to close your accounts and it seems as if they simply put your money into a type of investment account that you choose. They don’t actually manage your investments. Very disappointed and frustrating.

Could be a 5.
They only reason Acorns doesn’t get a five is because they have a “checking account” but I can’t actually write a physical check. If I could I would use them for my personal bank also. I also not a fan of they’re pop adds.

They will freeze your funds if you change banks. I wonder why 🤔. I'm beginning to wonder what they do with clients' funds. My funds have been frozen for a week now, get this... they're asking me to prove that my OLD DEPOSIT ACCOUNT (🤷🏻‍♂️) and that my NEW DEPOSIT ACCOUNT actually belong to me. I've already uploaded documents 3 times and 3 times the have rejected them. I can't access my funds. I also linked the new bank through Plaid, but they blocked it.

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.
