“Financial education is inseparable from long-term financial wellness,” said Acorns Chief Content & Education Officer, Kennedy Reynolds. “By working with Cricket to put financial tools and knowledge in everyone’s hands, we step closer towards leveling the playing field.”
Acorns and Cricket have developed educational content and resources available to all on the Money Moments microsite. There is also the opportunity to sign up for weekly emails featuring Cricket Money Moments and money tips from Acorns that will help inform users on their investment journey.
“Our collaboration with Acorns speaks to the heart of what we’re about—helping our customers stress less and smile more,” said John Dwyer, president of Cricket Wireless. “Money is often the root cause of stress, and many people don’t have the resources to learn more. Together with Acorns, we’re taking the guesswork and the hard work out of the equation.”
As part of the financial wellness collaboration, one lucky winner will also receive $10,000 either in cash or into their Acorns account with the Cricket Financial Headstart sweepstakes. For a chance to win, customers need to visit a local Cricket store and register via a QR code. The sweepstakes will run from February 10th through April 6th.1
Cricket will also invest an initial $10 when customers sign up for Acorns through this collaboration. Additionally, every time Cricket customers pay their bill, Cricket will invest $1 in their Acorns Invest account.2 Customers will need to link their Acorns account to the card used to pay for their Cricket service and they’ll earn as they pay.
