I just downloaded the Acorns app and am hesitant to provide Acorns with my USAA user id, pw, and pin. does USAA have an agreement with Acorns? Do any other members use the ACORNS service and if so, how do you like it?

I would much rather USAA set up a program like Acorns instead.

A friend was telling me a few years ago how his bank offered to deposit the remainder of each purchase (rounded up to next whole dollar) into his savings account. I was super jealous of it, and wished USAA had options like that.

 

Come on USAA, offer this cool feature!

Hi Ed3!

 

After taking with some experts here at USAA I wanted to share what they had to say:

 

When considering using an app such as Acorn, we recommend members research the total cost associated with using this service, including considering the total investment fees charged throughout the lifetime of your investment.

 

As an alternative, USAA offers a program that allows investors to open an account with a minimum of $50. This program also allows free automatic investments from the account of your choosing.

 

We also encourage you to contact our USAA Financial Advisors who can give you advice based on your specific situation and needs. They can be reached at 800-771-9960. You can also visit the tools and calculators section on your USAA mobile app to receive individual portfolio recommendations based on your risk tolerance, investing goals and current situation.

 

 

There are a few other conversations about the Acorn Application in the community if you would like to perusre other's expereinces:
