What is Acorns Checking?
Acorns Checking is our smart checking account that invests while you spend. If you’re in the Acorns Personal or Acorns Family tiers, Acorns Checking comes with your subscription, at no extra cost.

If you’re not an Acorns Checking Direct Deposit customer yet, be sure to set up Direct Deposit next so that you can access Smart Deposit, and invest a piece of every paycheck automatically.
How do I set up Direct Deposit?
There are a couple of ways you can set up Direct Deposit into your Acorns Checking account. The easiest option is to set it up right from your Checking account settings by connecting directly to your employer or payroll provider. We also give you the option to download a pre-filled PDF Direct Deposit enrollment form that you can provide to your employer.
Do I have to maintain a minimum account balance?
There is no minimum amount required to open an Acorns Checking account. During the sign-up process, you will be asked to fund your Checking account with at least $25 so that you can begin using your card as soon as it arrives in the mail.
Are there fees for banking with Acorns?
Acorns Checking is included in the Acorns Personal and Acorns Family tiers, which features a host of products and tools. Acorns does not charge overdraft fees or minimum balance fees, and your Acorns Checking account comes with 55,000+ fee-free ATMS nationwide and around the world.
