How do i file taxes?

4 months ago

Does Stash automatically take the money out of your bank acct. without permission?

5 months ago

You helped me so much. Thank you!

3 days ago

I'm glad it was helpful 👍

2 days ago

In your video you said that you can not invest in individual apps but in stash you can invest in Individual apps if you scroll over more

6 days ago

Very true! They have now added the ability to invest in individual stocks. I will definitely have to make an updated comparison between these 2 apps in the near future 👍

6 days ago

Is that good they ask for your SSN number?

2 weeks ago

Yes it is needed by all registered brokerages for tax purposes 👍

1 week ago

In my opinion, both of these apps are crap since they charge a monthly commission. Robinhood or M1 are better options.

With these apps, if you invest just "spare change" like they advertise, all of your gains will get eaten up in fees! That's the part that they don't tell you. So unless you start out with a significant amount ($500 dollars or so) it's not worth it. But since most people are broke, no one would sign up if they told the truth.

3 weeks ago

What is the risk of going bankrupt using these apps?

1 month ago

I don't know if this is out of date but I don't see where the "potential" tab is @ 3:00. Can you say it a different way? Thanks!

1 month ago

I just double checked my app and it is still there on mine. On the homepage of your app there are 4 tabs at the top. On the far right there should be one that says potential. If you click on this that will open up the projection calculator 👍

1 month ago

Great video! Is there a fee for withdrawing funds once I reach a goal/need the money?

1 month ago

Thanks! There is no fee to withdraw your funds and you can withdraw them at any time 👍 The only fee with either app is the fixed $1 per month fee.

1 month ago

Why Robinhood is better than acorn and stash or why acorn is better than Robinhood and stash or why stash is better than Robinhood and acorn

1 month ago

There’s a $1 monthly charge fee? Is that for both?

1 month ago

Yes both apps have a $1 monthly fee. Acorns is free for active students for up to 4 years.

1 month ago

I have round up change that goes to my savings? Would I just lose that option if acorns takes the rounded up cash

1 month ago

The rounded up change gets invested into your Acorns investments once the change reaches at least $5.

1 month ago

What about utilizing both apps as they appear to have unique features I like that accorn allows you to round up your purchases for savings while stash has more etf's in groups to invest in. Again I'm new so also looking for advice.

1 month ago

Yes you can definitely use both apps. I personally use both apps like you said for both of their unique features 👍

1 month ago

the potential is a little miss leading. if you put $50 a month in for a year you would potentially make $323 not $923. you don't count the money you invested. you get the 600 you put in back plus 323 in dividends. it would make more sense to cash out every year than to keep the account open for 5 years. 600 more dollars in fact............

1 month ago

Great video, do you use both your self?

1 month ago

Yes to this day I still currently use both of these apps. They are two of my favorites 👍

1 month ago

Thank you for explaining both apps so flawlessly!

1 month ago

You're welcome, I'm glad it was helpful! 👍

1 month ago

It is now 2019. Time to try something new and start investing lol.

1 month ago

The best time to start is always now 👍

1 month ago

so one question, which one has given you the most profit or ROI till date?

1 month ago

Between the two it has been Acorns has performed better for me so far. But it really depends on the investments you choose within each app.

1 month ago

Thanks for the info

1 month ago

No problem 👍

1 month ago

Do you have to link up a card with these apps to get started?

1 month ago

You do not have to connect a card with either app to get started. However, you will need to link up a bank account with either app to get started.

1 month ago

You don't cover fees

1 month ago

Sorry about that. Both apps charge $1 per month to use. But if you are a student Acorns offers a free student membership for as long as you are a student, up to 4 years.

1 month ago

I use beanstox app of Kevin O'Leary

1 month ago

Interesting. I will have to look into that app 👍

1 month ago

can you withdraw any time without a limited amount ?

2 months ago

Yes you can withdraw any amount at anytime without penalty.

1 month ago

Thank you for telling me about the acorns app I just downloaded it I'll make sure it's great I'm going to try it out

2 months ago

No problem, I hope you enjoy the app too.

2 months ago

sounds like another wall st.scheme which proves crime pays avoid

2 months ago

Boy u did a dam good job..u made feel like I can do this👍👍👍..so it'll be good to have both apps is what your saying??

2 months ago

Thanks I appreciate it. You can definitely do it! These apps make it easy for beginners to get started without a large investment. I personally use both apps but there is nothing wrong with starting out with just one if that is more comfortable. It's always best to go at your own pace.

2 months ago

Well I'm very new to this but so far I'm with Acorns and it seems to be okay. Time will tell

2 months ago

Awesome, hope you enjoy Acorns!

2 months ago

Thanks for the review... My question,If I have $50 to lose each month, Can I do a recurring investment of $50 a month and leave it there, without being actively involved in the investment process?

2 months ago

No problem.That is possible on Stash but not on Acorns. On Stash if you set up a recurring investment you can choose to either deposit that $50 into one or some of your investments or to be held in your cash account. On Acorns you can only setup a recurring investment directly into your investment portfolio.

2 months ago

Appreciate all your videos. I currently have stash but have been thinking about additionally using acorns strictly for the round up feature when making purchases. Two questions, our spending is probably not identical but just with round up do you think it would be worth it? Are there any fees associated when roundup is linked to a credit card?

2 months ago

There are no fees associated with the roundup feature. The only fee is the $1 monthly fee to use Acorns, unless you are a student. I think it might be worth it to help invest gradually over time without thinking about it. But one of my favorite features of Acorns is their found money feature where you get pretty good cash back at a number of major retailers.

2 months ago

I use Acorns as more of a savings account now instead. And I also decided to give Stash a try and invest in the growing Marijuana ETF. I made 6 cents from yesterday's initial 5 dollars 😂

2 months ago

I enjoyed the video. i have a question, does these platforms insured by FDIC? thank you.

2 months ago

I'm new to your Youtube Channel. I'm also new to investing in general. these apps are very useful and handy especially i can invest small amount. do you have videos on how to get started on investing with this apps? as a beginner, do you prefer one app from another (Stash and Acorn)? what stocks should i be investing in? so much questions to ask. thanks again for your Youtube channel.

2 months ago

Both Acorns and Stash are SIPC insured, which is the FDIC equivalent for brokerage accounts.

Sir is this available in philippines?

+Everyday Investing ok sir,thanks a lot

3 months ago

I am sorry I do not know. I would suggest looking inside your phone's app store and searching for investing apps.

3 months ago

Thnk u sir,how sad,,sir do you have know others app for other countries like philippines?

3 months ago

I'm sorry but they are currently only available in the US.

3 months ago

Thank you so much for making this video! I’m officially relieved now that I know both these apps are legitimate! 😃👍

3 months ago

No problem, I'm glad it was helpful!

3 months ago

Great video. We plan to do the acorn because if are reducing the amount of credit cards we are using. Switching to debt card for Misc Purchases. So instead of riding the whole 1% cash back insensitive the credit cards give we hope to use Acorn to simulate that technique but at the same time invest that little bit of liquid assets.

We are going to use Acron to remove the need to add funds because it's automatic and the found money feature.

4 months ago

Credit cards are very helpful for a long term credit history

1 month ago

Great idea! I'm looking forward to the new Acorns debit card too.

4 months ago

Thanks for the video! I can see the Stash App has a better look to it and nice options but I do like the Acorns idea of investing spare change. I watched the Robin Hood one too. I like that I could invest in companies I'm familiar with. I'm still feeling a bit torn about which to begin with... I know very little about trading so... maybe I should put off Robin Hood a while so I can learn from the articles on one of these two. Has much changed since you made the videos?

4 months ago

+Everyday Investing Great! Thanks!

4 months ago

No problem! A few things have changed but most of the info is still accurate. Stash has added the ability to invest in individual stocks and both have added the option to open retirement accounts as well. I'll have to make an updated review on them soon.

4 months ago

+Investing Apps TV have you tried acorns later? I'm thinking about trying acorns but have some questions, if I start it now will I have to pay taxes for it next year? Also which IRA is better?

4 months ago

+Everyday Investing ok thank you so much for the reply.

4 months ago

I have not tried Acorns later yet because I already have my retirement account set up at Vanguard. But I will try to review it in the future. Yes if you start now you will have to pay taxes during next year's tax season on any profits you made for this year. The good thing is both apps provide you with a 1099 tax form during tax season that will give you all the information you need to file taxes.I believe Acorns offers a regular IRA, a Roth IRA, and a SEP IRA. With a regular IRA you get a tax deduction on contributions now but you have to pay taxes later in retirement on your contributions and on all profits you made over the years. I prefer a Roth IRA because while you have to pay taxes on contributions now all those contributions get o grow tax free and you won't have to pay taxes on all the profits later in retirement. A SEP IRA is only an option for self-employed people.

Stash has come along way since this video.Stash has a lot of companies now

4 months ago

Very true! They're adding more new individual stocks weekly it seems now. I'll have to make an updated review soon.

4 months ago

I like stash because I can see where the money is at

4 months ago

Very informative. Thanks for your video.

4 months ago

Awesome, I'm glad it was helpful!

Please help

What's good about having the Acorns debit cards... checking account?

4 months ago

Yes it's supposed to have a checking account linked to your Acorns investment account. I would think the main benefits are instant cash back with real-time round ups from Found Money partners and the ability to move money back and forth more quickly between your checking account and investment account. I'm waiting for the debit card to arrive sometime later this year and will do a more detailed review on it when I get it.

I've already blown it. I'm 64 with no retirement and have to work and don't want to. I need about 3000 extra a month on top of my SS which is 1200. I need it quickly. Is crypto coins the answer or what? Please get back to me even if it's an honest home business that works. Hope to hear from you soon. Thanks. Jay

What about Tax Filing of earnings from these investment?

4 months ago

You will have to pay taxes on any profits you made. The good thing is both apps provide you with a 1099 tax form during tax season that will give you all the information you need to file taxes.

My bad I forgot to mention the fees. Both apps charge a #1 per month fee however if you are a student Acorns provides up to four years free for as long as you are a student.
