Have you ever wanted to start investing but don’t know where to start? How about putting your change to work. Let me explain.
Let’s say you pump in gas and your total was $10.92. We’re already going to be getting anywhere from 1-5% cash bank from this expense because you’re using your credit card right? (If you’re not, start using credit cards only, read here why). Out of your $10.92, Acorns will round up to the nearest dollar and invest it for you, in this case, it’s .08 cents. Acorns links up to as many accounts as you’d like, so every transaction is rounded up.
When setting up your account, Acorns will ask you how risky you want portfolio to be. I chose risky of course, hey, you got to risk it to get the biscuit right?
I’ve had the app for about a year and a half now, and I’ve saved about $1900 that I didn’t have to plan for. Remember, investing has it’s risks and the market can go up and down, try risking with your everyday change. Click on my invitation to get a complimentary $10 from Acorns and start investing. After you set it up, you can also invite your friends and get an additional $10 for each person you invite, it’s a win win! Good luck!
