I use it much like Dustinm27 uses it.
I set it through my checking account.
If you spend $2.50 on something, it rounds up to $3 and invests that $0.50 into your Acorns fund.
If you spend $2.01 it will invest $0.99, etc, and so forth.
Its wise to note: Acorns waits until you have $5 of rou...

I said if you can, pay the minimum mortgage note, max your roth & 401k, then put any extra on top of your mortgage.
He said a guy he knew paid his house off fir...
