Compound Interest Calculator

See your potential

Fill in our compound interest calculator with an amount you’d be comfortable contributing regularly to see how much the power of time can help your money grow.

The chart shows an estimate of how much an investment could grow over time based on the initial deposit, contribution schedule, time horizon, and interest rate specified.  Changes in those variables can affect the outcome.  Reset the calculator using different figures to show different scenarios.  Results do not predict the investment performance of any Acorns portfolio and do not take into consideration economic or market factors which can impact performance.

Squirrels can show us the benefits of investing

Acorns was designed to help us humans follow in the (very tiny) footsteps of nature’s greatest investor — the squirrel! Here are some financial principles we’ve learned from our furry friends.
Tiny can turn mighty with time

When a squirrel looks at an acorn, they don’t see a small nut. They see a mighty oak in the making! All it takes is time.

That’s because when you invest your money, you’re not just saving it for later. You’re giving it a real chance to grow into something even bigger with the power of time and the stock market. 

Tiny can turn mighty with time Tiny can turn mighty with time
Don’t put all your nuts in one place Don’t put all your nuts in one place
Don’t put all your nuts in one place

Squirrels bury them all over! In investing, that’s called “diversification.” It means your money is spread across a mix of asset types — and it can help reduce risk, too.

Acorns makes it easy to mix things up by recommending diversified portfolios built by experts that match your money goals.

Acorns can turn into more acorns

Sometimes when a squirrel buries an acorn, it grows into an oak tree — and then that oak tree makes more acorns for that squirrel and all its little squirrel babies! 

That’s basically how “compounding” works — and why Acorns automatically reinvests your dividends and your gains. We know money can’t grow on trees, but it can grow on itself!

Go slooow Go slooow
Go slooow

One squirrel can collect over 10,000 acorns each year. That kind of stockpile doesn’t happen all at once! Squirrels slowly build up their acorn fortune, one cheekful at a time.

Acorns helps you invest at your own pace, too. Automatically add as little as $5 to your account every day, week, or month and you can give your money a chance to grow without busting your budget.

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 (UTMA/UGMA account)
  • 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, a retirement account, lets you automatically save for retirement by setting easy Recurring Contributions. When you sign-up, the app recommends an IRA 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 increase 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 charge commissions. Our goal is to give you the tools to take the best financial care of yourself, easily.


    For our low monthly fee, you get: 

    • Diversified portfolios
    • Automatic rebalancing
    • Access to Acorns Earn partners to earn while you shop
    • On the go accessibility through our mobile and web app
    • Investment support from our dedicated support team
    • Access to Acorns Later, an easy way to save for retirement
    • Access to Acorns Checking, with a debit card that saves, invests and earns for you


    The path to financial wellness should be accessible to everyone, so we make it easy to invest in you. With Acorns, you can start early and invest often, without making big changes to your everyday life. In fact, you can start with as little as $5.

    What do I need to get started?

    Right arrow

    Once you download the Acorns app or sign up through our web app, you’ll need:


    1. A valid email address where we can reach you and regularly send you account information.
    2. Your online banking log-in information to link your accounts to fund your investments, use Round-Ups®, and pay your monthly subscription fee. (Please note, you MUST be listed as an owner on the bank account)

    4. Your Social Security Number or ITIN.
    5. General Profile Information like your financial goals, time horizon, risk tolerance, occupation, and earnings. This will help us recommend the right portfolio for you.

    That’s it! Most accounts are approved within 1 business day. If you experience a delay in getting your account approved, please reach out to Support.

    Where is my money invested?

    Right arrow

    There are five different Acorns Core portfolios and four different Acorns ESG Portfolios, built by experts. Each portfolio is composed of exchange-traded funds — ETFs for short. An ETF is made of broad holdings of stocks and/or bonds. Depending on your portfolio, you’re invested in a mix of companies, markets, and bonds—and if you choose, a Bitcoin-linked ETF. The overview or prospectuses of the ETFs can be found below:



    The ETFs comprising the Acorns portfolios charge fees and expenses that will reduce a customer’s return. Investors should read each fund's prospectus and consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of the funds carefully before investing. Investment policies, management fees and other information can be found in the individual ETF’s prospectus.

    Acorns is only available to US citizens or other lawful residents who are currently located in the United States. You must be 18 or older to sign up for an Acorns account.

    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. 

    Round-Ups® are 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.

    Acorns Early is an UTMA/UGMA investment account managed by an adult custodian until the minor beneficiary comes of age, at which point they assume control of the account. Early accounts are automatically placed in an aggressive portfolio. Money in a custodial account is the property of the minor.
