"M1 Finance, Acorns, Robinhood. Stash, etc What's your experience?"
I currently have Robinhood, it's cool. But I just jumped in with M1 and it seems to be more robust and is equally user-friendly. My wife uses Acorns and she loves it. But M1 seems to be the way to you want to buy fractions of stock, add an IRA, or just build these pies with as many stocks as you want to help with growth and balance. M1 is great for novice folks too because of their Expert Pies that are pre-built for low risk.
So, what are you using and how has it been going?

She says its great for a service industry person because you're always looking for ways to stash money away anyway and not spend it all on after work hang outs and siphoning the extra change off card purchases is real easy to relate to coin jars and siphoning off half of cash tips for rainy days. I keep thinking to get it going but never get to it.

The stock market wasn't that bad. Somebody robbed you

I have most of my money in it. I only have just enough in my regular savings to cover for any cash emergencies I might need immediately. My emergency fund is in their new "Everyday Savings" account and currently getting 2.38 APY. A smaller amount is in a regular Investment account set to moderate risk. I have regular auto deposits set up for both.
Performance hasn't been that great but its better than just leaving it all in a regular savings account collecting dust. I like the app. I have no clue about stocks and investing and am not really interested in it so it works for me.
