Why do I have to pay anything for Acorns Checking? Aren’t checking accounts free?

Most checking accounts aren’t actually free. In fact, on average, most banks have over 22 hidden fees, and collectively rake in about $30 billion a year from those fees. When you consider that on average, Americans lose $329 a year from bank fees, just $36 a year for Acorns Checking, featuring checking, retirement, and investment accounts — plus bonus investments and financial advice —  is a lot of savings!


We hope you’ll open an Acorns Checking account to get banking that helps you grow your money!
