Who wants to be a millionaire?
Even if those words don’t strike a nostalgic chord,you might be eagerly raising your hand, anyway. Because, of course you want $1 million. And it doesn’t have to be hard to start the process of getting there.
If you’ve got $10 and a smartphone in your pocket, you’ve got the tools you need to be on your way to seven figures.
Save $5 and get $5 in free stocks
Start your investing journey with just $10 — and only put up half of it yourself.
There’s an investing app that helps you build wealth $5 at a time — and it’ll even kick in a $5 bonus to get you started.
You can stash away funds for yourself, your retirement and even for your kids through the app. Just let it know how much you want to contribute each week, and the app’s robots put it into the best investments to grow and achieve your goals.
You can also pick and choose stocks yourself, if you feel like backing your favorite companies. But, unless you’re a professional stockbroker, we recommend letting the investing app handle that part for you, so you can sit back and watch your savings grow on autopilot.
You’ll pay no commissions to invest with Stash, just a monthly membership fee between $1 and $9, depending on which features you want to use.
Get paid $10 for saving your spare change
This is as easy as saving money can possibly get: This roboadvisor app lets you invest spare change while you shop.
Here’s how it works: Say you buy a coffee for $2.25. Swipe your card, and the app automatically rounds up the purchase to $3, and sticks the leftover $0.75 into your investment portfolio. Like a super-charged piggy bank.
You don’t have to think about stocks or pick lint off of the change in your pocket. Just connect any debit and credit cards you use to your account, and the app automates everything for you. Plus, when you sign up through this link, the service adds a $10 bonus to your account as soon as you make your first investment. That’s like filling up your whole coffee punch card!
Win up to $225 in Apple or Ford stock
You’ll get one full share of a stock worth up to $225 when you open an account with this famous investment app.
The app makes investing easy and accessible for anyone by charging no fees through its easy-to-use platform.
Opt for ready-made funds designed to meet your investment goals, or choose individual stocks yourself — you’ll pay zero commissions on trades (that’s investor-speak for “this is a good deal”).
When you sign up for a free account, you’ll get a free share of stock chosen at random from the most popular companies on the brokerage. The luckiest 1% get a share worth between $50 and $200. Most users get a share worth between $2.50 and $10 — and that’s $10 closer to your $1 million!
