How does Early Gifts work?

Gifting is an Acorns Early feature where friends and family with a United States bank account and a billing address in the United States can contribute to a child’s Early account. If you’d like your friends or family to make a gift, you can simply share a link, and they can give the gift of an investment using a debit card.

To send an Early Gifts link to a friend:

  1. Log in to your Acorns account

  2. Select the "Early" shortcut on the Home screen or select the child who you'd like to receive a gift 

  3. Select the "Gifts" button 

  4. Follow the prompts in the Gifting experience

Once your friend or family member receives the link, they will be launched into an Early Gifts experience where they can enter their contribution amount, a personal message that will appear on that child’s Early Account’s recent activity ledger, and their debit card information.
