Want to take a family vacation? Ready to start saving money? Perhaps investing money? If the answer is “Yes”, congrats! The new year is just a short few weeks away and for many, this is a time to set new resolutions. New goals. So whether it’s a short or long term goal, I have found the Acorns app to be really helpful and oh so easy to use. Using an Acorns account is a no-brainer. Especially if you struggle with saving money. I know for me the intent to do so was always there but the act of following through always fell short.
I love the flexibility of the Acorns program. In one year I was able to save $5,000! Just from Acorns depositing my change into a portfolio that was compatible with my income and goals. Acorns will track your purchases via your bank card and then round up to the nearest dollar. For example, If you purchased a coffee from Starbucks for $3.75, Acorns would add 25 cents to your investment account. There are also options to invest larger amounts. The best part is withdrawals from your Acorn account can be made at any time. So if you were saving for a family vacation and met your goal, you could withdraw the funds when you were ready.
So how do I get started? I’m so glad you asked.
