What is it? Stockpile is 3rd Party Investing Tool that you can use via app or online (desktop). It was founded to change to theory that investing was hard and pricey. They are a listed with FINRA* as well!
What I LOVE about this? You can snatch up either full shares or partial! You read that right! Those big companies with 4 figure share prices, can now be brought bit-by-bit until you own a full share. Also, you can also open up a custodial account for your kids and give gift cards? Cool, right?
Any fees? It is a cost of 99¢ per trade, a lot less than traditional brokerages charge.

*Brokerages have to be regulated and registered with FINRA (Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc). They are like the IRS to financial services/brokers/firms. If a app or brokerage doesn’t have FINRA or SEC listed, run.
What is this? Well, Acorns started off with the concept of investing your spare change from purchases. Cool idea, but over the last couple of months their product offerings has grown like a portfolio. Their mission was to look after the financial best interests of the up-and-coming, beginning with the empowering step of micro-investing. They now offer debit cards w/ Checking account (Acorns Spend), Acorns Later (retirement planning) and promotions with other brands (which you get paid to use)! Crazy right?
What I LOVE about this? What I love about Acorns is their room for growth that allows others to grow along with them. Most people freak out about having to ‘save' or ‘transfer’ to invest; well Acorns does that part for you. The whole notion of set it and forget it is real with this app.
Any fees? Their fees are easy to understand - like 1,2, 3. Seriously, they package their products under a scale that either cost you $1 a month - Acorns Core / $2 a month - Acorns Core + Acorns Later or $3 a month -Acorns Core + Acorns Later +

What is this? Robinhood is another online FINRA approved investing tool - just like the other ones that I have mentioned already. It allows you to make zero-commission trades on the stock exchange. It also allows you to buy some ‘indie’ stock as well!
What I LOVE about this? Zero commission trades! Like, Free Free. Nada. That along with how they are starting to branch out into things like Crytocurrencies like old buddy Bitcoin.
Any fees? NOPE!
