Acorns  is a micro-investing platform focused on investing small amounts of money. They are giving out big bonuses to start off the year!
Acorns normally gives out $5 as a sign up bonus. During January, they are giving out $1,000 bonuses.
It’s an easy sign up; I opened an account for my husband this morning and it took less than five minutes.

More on Acorns
Acorns Fees. The fee for an Acorns  account is the lesser of $1 per month or the month-end account balance. For accounts over $5,000, the fee is 0.25% per year. Accounts are free for college students with .edu email addresses. The fees aren’t cheap, but the $1,000 bonus more than offsets it!
Minimum Deposit. The minimum deposit is $5. The $5 option wasn’t listed when I made my deposit, but you can manually change the amount to $5.
Referrals. When you refer a friend you both get $5. The $1,000 bonus for 10 friends will be in addition to the standard referral. In addition, they will plant an oak tree for each referral.
More Offers. Besides standard contributions to your account, you can also link your credit cards for more opportunities to invest by rounding up and enroll in their found money rewards. See more about the “found money” at Frequent Miler .
Eligibility. You must be 18 to be eligible for an account. Whenever we have to refer people, my first stop is my spouse and my next stop is the kids if they are eligible. Unfortunately for this offer, we have to locate adults only!
