Investing in a diversified collection of ETFs can help limit the effects that poor performance of a single investment may have on your portfolio. Investing for the long-term and staying diversified can reduce the impact of market volatility on your overall portfolio.

We know money doesn’t grow on trees, but with compound interest or compound returns, money can grow on itself. The longer you invest in a diversified portfolio, the more you're giving your money a chance to work for you.

Frequently asked

How does Acorns work?

Right arrow

Acorns was built to give everyone the tools of wealth-building. Whether you’re new to investing or planning ahead for your family’s future, we bundle our products, tools, and education into subscription tiers — each curated to meet you on whichever stage of life you’re in.


Acorns offers three different subscription tiers for your life’s financial needs.


Acorns Personal - $3/month

Investing tools and financial education to get started. This tier includes:

  • Invest
  • Later
  • Checking


Acorns Personal Plus - $6/month

Tools to learn, save and invest, plus live Q&A sessions with financial experts. This tier includes the previous tools, in addition:

  • Premium Education
  • Emergency Fund
  • Earn Rewards Match (eligible for an extra 25% match on bonus investments you earn up to $200.)
  • Mighty Oak Card


Acorns Premium - $12/month

Full suite of tools to save and invest for your family. This tier includes the previous tools, in addition:

  • Benefits Hub
  • Custom Portfolio
  • Early 
  • Earn Rewards Match (eligible for an extra 50% match on bonus investments you earn up to $200.)
  • Mighty Oak Card


    What are the different accounts in the tiers? 

    Invest automatically invests your spare change (if you opt-in) and lets you invest as little as $5 any time or on a recurring basis into a portfolio of ETFs. Your investments are then diversified across more than 7,000 stocks and bonds, and Acorns automatically rebalances your portfolio to stay in its target allocation.


    Later, the retirement account, lets you automatically save for retirement by setting easy Recurring Contributions. When you sign-up, the app recommends an IRA account for you based on your goals, employment and income.


    With Acorns Checking, our checking account and debit card, you can save, invest and earn while you spend. Acorns Checking has no overdraft or minimum balance fees, plus free Allpoint ATM access nationwide.


    Round-Ups® and Investing

    With Round-Ups®, we round up any purchase made from a linked account, debit or credit card to the next dollar. We invest Round-Ups® in your Acorns Invest account when they add up to at least $5 from all linked accounts. You can find and manage your Round-Ups® within your Invest account.


    Round-Ups® will always be transferred from your primary checking account.


    Recurring Investments allow you to invest as little as $5 per day, week or month into your Acorns accounts.


    And you can make one-time investments anytime to boost your account value. When you create your profile, we'll suggest a portfolio based on your answers to a few questions, but you can change it at anytime. The portfolio recommendation is designed with the goal to maximize potential returns at a selected level of risk.


    Where do we invest it? The money in your Acorns Invest account is invested in different exchange-traded funds (ETFs). These funds include stocks, bonds and other securities. Read more about it at


    What makes Acorns different?

    Our 5 investment portfolios were designed with the goal to maximize potential returns at a selected level of risk. There are no account minimums and we don't work on commission. Our goal is to give you the tools to take the best financial care of yourself, easily.

    Diversification and asset allocation do not guarantee a profit, nor do they eliminate the risk of loss of principle. Compounding is the process in which an asset's earnings are reinvested to generate additional earnings over time. It does not ensure positive performance nor does it protect against loss. Acorns clients may not experience compound returns and investment results will vary based on market volatility and fluctuating prices. 

    Spare change invested with Round-Ups® is transferred from your linked funding source to your Acorns Invest account, where the funds are invested into a portfolio of selected ETFs. If you do not maintain an adequate amount of funds in your funding source sufficient to cover your Round-Ups® investment, you could incur overdraft fees with your financial institution. Round-Up investments from an external account, will be processed when your Pending Round-Ups reach or exceed $5.

    The average Acorns investor, with a verified and active account, has invested $166 between 1/1/21 and 4/30/21 using the Round-Ups® feature. Individual results will vary and averages only take into account the Round-Ups® investments themselves and do not reflect the impact investment volatility will have on overall performance.

    Acorns may receive compensation from business partners in connection with certain promotions in which Acorns refers clients to such partners for the purchase of non-investment consumer products or services. This type of marketing partnership gives Acorns an incentive to refer clients to business partners instead of to businesses that are not partners of Acorns. This conflict of interest affects the ability of Acorns to provide clients with unbiased, objective promotions concerning the products and services of its business partners. This could mean that the products and/or services of other businesses, that do not compensate Acorns, may be more appropriate for a client than the products and/or services of Acorns business partners. Subscribers are, however, not required to purchase the products and services Acorns promotes.
