Acorns Mighty Oak Debit Card review

In November 2023, Acorns announced the introduction of a limited edition card that was created in partnership with Dwayne Johnson. The Mighty Oak Debit Card serves as a banking tool that allows customers to take advantage of a checking account that has an APY* that’s 50x the national average, to grow their money faster.

Johnson says The Acorns Mighty Oak Debit Card, available as of November 14, 2023, offers customers the opportunity to follow his lead into turning small investments into big returns.

"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," said Johnson in a press release. "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. One step at a time."

"Dwayne proved it with $7 and we know from tiny acorns, mighty oaks do grow," said Noah Kerner, CEO of Acorns. "We're also excited to offer two of the mightiest APYs available today. Our mission is to look after the financial best interests of everyday people, and the Mighty Oak Card, at these rates, does that and much more."

Acorns Mighty Oak Debit Card offers a host of neat features that make passive investing easy.
