Thanks for helping your friends grow wealth with us! Find information below on our ongoing and our automatic $5 referral reward.

When you refer friends to Acorns using your custom referral link, and they invest at least $5 in their new Acorns Invest account, we will invest a $5 “thank you” bonus into your Acorns Invest account. We will also invest $5 into your friend’s Acorns Invest account as a welcome boost after they make their first investment. This usually takes a few business days to process.

We have a helpful resource to send to your friends if they would like more information on what Acorns is, here

You can check out our guide to inviting your friends that include tips and helpful information when referring friends, here

What do I do if I haven’t received my $5 bonus? 

If there is someone who's completed the above requirements and you haven’t received the reward, please allow 5 business days to see it as pending on the Recent Activity screen of your Invest account.

In order to receive our $5 referral reward, the referee (person being referred) needs to meet the following requirements:

  1. Must use referral link to sign up as a new Acorns customer 
  2. Must have his or her account approved
  3. Must make a successful investment from his or her connected primary checking account (Investments take up to 5 business days to settle)
  4. Investments that are returned or charged back do not qualify as successful investments
  5. Both you and your referrals account must be in good standing at the time the reward is issued

If you have met the requirements above and have not received the $5 referral reward, please contact our support team.
