What is Found Money?

Found Money allows more than 300 leading brands to invest a set amount or a percentage of your purchase price directly into your Acorns Invest account when you spend with them.

Found Money rewards are typically invested in your Invest account between 90 and 120 days after you make a purchase with one of our partners. You should see any pending rewards in the Earn Found Money section within 3-7 business days of your transaction.

Found Money offers may have eligibility requirements, such as being a new user, starting a subscription or making a purchase within the same session you tapped to get an offer. Check the offer details for the complete requirements and consider installing our Google Chrome extension for easy access when using your Chrome browser.

You can also now earn even more Found Money through your Acorns Visa debit card. Local partner restaurants and retailers may invest a percentage of any purchase you make on your Acorns Visa debit card into your Invest account, automatically. Click here for more information on Spend.

Tips for making an eligible Found Money purchase:

  1. If you are using any other promotions, discounts, gift cards or coupons, make sure they do not disqualify you from receiving Found Money.

  2. Ensure that ad-blockers or cookie blockers are disabled on your device. These can prevent Acorns from recognizing your purchase and may make you ineligible for Found Money.

  3. Do not activate other cash back/reward sites or browser extensions. Otherwise, your purchase might be associated with a service other than Acorns.

  4. Click the offer link in the Acorns app and make the purchase in the same session.

  5. Check that you are using an Acorns-linked card.
