Invest Easily...One Acorn at a Time...

In this day and age of paltry savings account interest rates, I am always looking for ways to get better returns.  An app I came across awhile back, Acorns, allows you to connect your debit card to an investment portfolio where you can have the spare change from your purchases invested into various ETFs.

I think it is a great way for those not familiar with investing to get started, and a great way to passively invest.  While you shouldn't expect huge returns necessarily, given the volatility of the markets, it's a great way to automatically invest, and even get in some dollar cost averaging.  

If you are interested, check out Acorns for more information, and should you decide to go forward, check out an easy way on the Opportunities page to earn $5 for your investment account to get going!
