The first app is called Acorns. It is the largest and fastest growing automated investment app that rounds up each of your transactions to the nearest dollar and invests the change into a diversified portfolio.
So, if you spend $8.46 on pizza at lunch, Acorns will invest the remaining $0.54. You simply have to connect your credit or debit card and a checking account to get started.
To get started, you simple have to connect your credit or debit card and a checking account to get started. To use the app, it costs $1 per month for accounts under $5.
