AT&T’s Cricket Wireless strikes partnership with Acorns to bring investing to its subscribers
- Cricket Wireless and Acorns are teaming up to bring investing to more people.
- With the Acorns app pre-installed on new handsets, Cricket customers also receive monetary incentives to use the investment app.
Cricket Wireless has struck a deal with Acorns to pre-install the investment app on all new handsets sold by the AT&T brand.
The Acorns-Cricket partnership: Cricket customers who sign up for a new Acorns account and invest $5 will receive a $10 investment bonus in their Acorns Invest account.
- Following Acorns signup, Cricket will invest $1 into their customers’ Acorns accounts for every month their wireless service is paid.
- Acorns customers who switch to Cricket Wireless through the summer receive a $20 investment bonus.
“One of the top reasons people don’t invest in their future is lack of access,” said Acorns CEO, Noah Kerner. “Our collaboration with Cricket, and their commitment to financial wellness, will make it even easier for everyday Americans to save and invest every day.”
