    I actually have a BP card I use only for gas and get rewards from it, a win win. Credit companies like people with low balances and on time payments. Certifies you as a low risk client at loan time.

    I use it also but typically default to my local Sams, they don't panic raise prices like the corner stores.

    4 months into the ACORNS app and my account is at $280.

    That's a pace to get me over $800 for the year. I may start contributing to it a little more as well since it's consistently making market money.
