Acorns Launches Celebrity-Backed Debit Card

Acorns Launches Celebrity-Backed Debit Card

Acorns is expanding beyond automated savings and investing this week. The California-based company announced the launch of the Mighty Oak Debit Card in partnership with actor Dwayne Johnson.

The new metal payment card is issued by Lincoln Savings Bank or nbkc bank and offers cardholders a few unique features. Not surprisingly, the Mighty Oak Debit Card allows users to round up their purchases to the nearest dollar and invest the spare change with the Real-Time Round-Ups feature. The card also offers paycheck split, which automatically saves and invests a portion of every paycheck on payday.

The card, which doesn’t have any minimum deposit or balance requirements, pays users 3.00% APY on their checking accounts and 5.00% APY on their savings. Users will also have access to Acorns Later, the fintech’s IRA retirement savings tool, as well as investment rewards earned on everyday purchases and access to 55,000 fee-free ATMs.

Dwayne Johnson is not only a celebrity sponsor, but he is also an investor in Acorns Grow Incorporated and is a director of its affiliate Acorns Labs, LLC.

“I’m personally invested in helping and rooting for people to achieve financial stability and success,” said Johnson. “I’ve worked with Acorns to create a one of a kind card that makes it easy for people to prioritize saving and investing so they can build a solid foundation for their future. I’ve been there, and know what it’s like to count every dollar and save every cent possible to provide for my family and myself. I wish I had the Mighty Oak card back in the struggling and fun days when I had only $7 bucks in my pocket, which is why I helped create this card now to empower people to take control of their financial well-being.”

The Mighty Oak Debit Card is available starting today for users in the $5 per month and $9 per month subscription tiers. Acorns is promoting the card by giving away $50,000 to seven cardholders.
