Why do I have to pay anything for Acorns Spend? Aren’t checking accounts free?

Acorns Spend is a system that comes with an investment account and a retirement account, and is designed to save, invest, and earn for you. We’ve designed our features so that you can offset your subscription price by simply using your card and investing for your future with every purchase.

While most banks charge, on average, 22 different hidden fees, we promise to charge no hidden fees — and provide only surprise upgrades.
