    Have you guys looked at this? Saw it on USA Today. They take your spare change and automatically invest it into ETFs. Interesting.

    Great concept, but horribly flawed.

    The ROI relative to the maintenance and account fees makes your Acorns investment slightly above inflation adjustments. $1 a month subtracted from an average $10.00/mo. in "roundups" equals a (10)% return for that month. You'd be lucky to net a 5-6% YTD return on ETFs with extreme diversification. Not to mention Uncle Sam's greedy hands all over your realized gains.

    Besides, investing directly into a company offers a sustainable answer to capital appreciation and wealth creation.

    Just my $0.02.

    P.S. Grab a healthy stake in AAPL before the iWatch takes off. Wearable computing is the future.

    I think it's a $1 a month after you reach $5000 and increments like that.
    They have not taken any money from me.

    I had like $500 in it for 6 months to test it out and they definitely took a fee every month. After 6 months on "aggressive" I had no gain, just a slight loss. Took my money out, lol.

    I've only put 100 and gained 25
    Fluctuating of course, they take there 1 of course but I keep investing by my round up with change.
    I mean if you're going to put 500 bucks into something you might as well put it into a CD that you can't touch cuz then you might gain some actual money. I take it as a kind of like a big poker machine sometimes you get lucky sometimes you dont

    Yhea I don't expect much when not putting in much like these people that have money.

    Savings account is another way to look at things

    Jealous. It’s all about when you made that initial deposit... I might retry when the market dips.
