Important Risk Disclosures

Investing involves risk including the loss of principal.  Please consider your objectives, risk tolerance, and Acorns’ fees before investing.  No level of diversification or asset allocation can ensure profits or guarantee against losses. This material has been distributed for informational purposes only and not intended as investment advice. Investment advisory services offered by Acorns Advisers, LLC (“Acorns”), an SEC-registered investment advisor. Brokerage services are provided to clients of Acorns by Acorns Securities, LLC, an SEC-registered broker-dealer and member FINRA/SIPC.  For additional risks, disclosures and information, visit 

$20 sign-up bonus is exclusively for Cricket Wireless customers who join Acorns on or after July 23, 2021 and who have not previously opened an Acorns Account. Offer must be redeemed by setting up a new Acorns Account and making your first investment into your Acorns Invest Account ($5 minimum) within 60 days. You must also make a purchase of $5 or more, within the calendar month, at Cricket Wireless using a valid credit or debit card that is properly linked to your Acorns Invest Account. $20 bonus will be applied within 60 days of your qualifying first investment and Cricket purchase. Monthly bill-pay promotion is $1 invested into your Acorns Invest Account when you spend $5 each calendar month at Cricket using a card properly linked to your Acorns Invest Account. Cricket Wireless service is subject to its own Terms and Conditions, see Acorns is only offered to US-residents.

Round-Up investments are transferred from your linked funding source to your Acorns Invest account, where the funds are invested into a portfolio of selected ETFs. Round-Up investments from an external account, will be processed when your Pending Round-Ups reach or exceed $5. Round-Up investments from Acorns Checking accounts will be processed on an ongoing basis if the Round-Ups setting is set to automatic. A properly suggested portfolio recommendation is dependent upon current and accurate financial and risk profiles. 

Acorns Checking accounts are FDIC insured up to $250,000. Acorns Visa™ debit cards are issued by Lincoln Savings Bank, member FDIC for Acorns Checking account holders.  

Acorns Earn provides subscribers access to shop with our partners and earn bonus investments into your Acorns Invest portfolios when purchasing items from the partner brands.  Acorns Earn rewards investments are made by Acorns Grow, Inc. into your Acorns Invest account through a partnership Acorns Grow maintains with each Acorns Earn partner.

Compounding, generally, is the growth of principal investments due to the reinvestment of dividends without withdrawing funds from the account.  Acorns investment accounts do no pay interest, so the impact of compounding may be limited.  Acorns clients may not experience compound returns and investment results will vary based on market volatility and fluctuations that will impact the value of any investment account.

What is Acorns?
Acorns is an app that helps you easily save and invest every day — no experience or expertise required! Sign up in less than 5 minutes and start investing your spare change in an expert-built portfolio.

Why do I need to add my Social Security number?
The Patriot Act requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person opening an account. We also require your social security number to issue you a tax reporting form at the end of each year.

Why do I have to pay a subscription fee?
Instead of charging surprise fees every time you want to move, deposit, or withdraw your money, we bundle our products into simple, transparent subscription tiers ($1, $3, or $5) designed to support your financial wellness.

How do I get the exclusive Cricket Nation $1 subscription plan?
Start by signing up for a new account on your Cricket Wireless phone. When you reach the “Choose your Subscription Plan” step, click on “Compare subscription plans.” There, you’ll find the $1 tier only for Cricket Wireless customers! (Heads up! The $1 tier is only available when you first sign up for Acorns.)

Can I withdraw or transfer my money?
Yes! You can withdraw or transfer money out of your Invest account at any time. Heads up — due to regulatory requirements, it can take 3-6 business days for withdrawals to transfer to your primary checking account. As a reminder, withdrawals may create a taxable event. If you have questions on your personal tax treatment, please consult a tax advisor.

When do I get my $20 from Acorns?
You’ll receive your $20 bonus investment within 60 days after you’ve signed up through Cricket Wireless and invested at least $5 into your account.

How do I get the $1 monthly Cricket Wireless credit?
Each month you pay your Cricket Wireless service with a debit or credit card linked to your Acorns account, you’ll get $1 added to your Invest account automatically.

Why should I sign up for Acorns?
We know that the majority of Americans (54%)** are struggling to pay bills and are not saving enough causing them to live paycheck-to-paycheck. At Acorns, we believe in making it simple for people to improve their financial circumstances with easy-to-use financial tools. Start saving and investing today for your future.
