You all know I love FREE money and I’ve got another opportunity for those of you who have been following along the stock market train. To recap, I’ve cycled through all of the different brokerage accounts with the intention of earning free stocks for opening. As of today, I’m up to $503.39! With the craziness of the stock market, I’ve been able to turn my free stocks into an even greater profit but I’ll save that story for another day. This basic breakdown will review Acorns Investment App and how to turn a $330 profit.

Acorns Investment App
Acorns is an investment account that takes a basic approach to grow your money. Instead of having the option to choose different stocks, Acorns allows it’s members to choose portfolios based on risk tolerance. One of my favorite aspects of the Acorns platform is the roundup feature. Roundup links to your purchases in any bank account you choose and moves the change into regular investments.
The only negative aspect of this account is that it does have a fee. The options are either $1 or $3 a month and come with varying benefits. The $3 a month account includes a checking and savings account which might appeal to some folks. When it comes to checking accounts, I typically won’t open one unless I’m earning at least $200. You’ll find the top options here!
Signup Promo (Earn $5)
Signup for Acorns and make a deposit of $5 and receive a $5 match. The $5 must remain in the account for a minimum of 30 days in order for the money to be credited. Click Here to earn your first $5 with Acorns!
Referral Program (Earn $325)
Earn $5 for each referral that successfully opens and funds a new Acorns Investment account. Acorns is offering a special promotion of $300 if you successfully refer five people before June 30th.
If you open the account and successfully refer five people you’ll end up with $330. That’s $5 for opening. Another $25 for referring five people and $300 for the promotion. If I can hit five people, that will bump up my $503.39 to $828.39 earned from opening all of the Free Stock Accounts!
