You should see your investment hit your Acorns account within 2-3 business days for Acorns Invest.

 

Recurring Investments: You may set up recurring investments on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. Select the amount of money you wish to invest regularly, and then choose the desired time period. 

Please complete the following steps to set up a Recurring Investment:

For Mobile:

The recurring investment will take effect on the day it’s created, and on the same day of the week (for weekly investments) or the same day of the month (for monthly investments).

 

Round-Ups: You may link your spending accounts (credit, debit, Paypal, etc.) and then round up the virtual change from every transaction. These Round-Ups can then be manually or automatically moved from your funding source into your Acorns account. Your transactions can be viewed on the Round-Ups screen of the app. Automatic Round-Ups can be turned on and off under the Linked Accounts section of the Settings. When enabled, Automatic Round-Ups will be automatically invested for you.
