Want more ways to save money? Auto-Stash can help you with that.

We think it’s smart to try to automate as many of your savings and investing goals as possible. (Studies have shown the more you can automate, the more likely you are to meet your financial goals.)

Auto-Stash is a set of tools from Stash that gives you more ways to stack up savings.

Auto-Stash is two tools in one—Auto-Invest and Round-Ups.

Wait, what is Auto-Stash?

Auto-Stash is a Stash essential. You can program how much money you want to save toward your investments, including retirement. You choose how much you want to save and how often. The money moves seamlessly from your checking account to Stash so you can invest on a auto-invest, no sweat required.

We think Auto-Stash is so important, that we made it part of The Stash Way.


Auto-Invest is classic Auto-Stash. It lets you transfer money into your Stash investing accounts automatically, on a set schedule.

Select the amount you want to save, and save it regularly on a schedule that works for you.

With Auto-Invest, you can set aside money into your cash balance, or into any of the investments you’ve added to your portfolio. It’s the easiest way to make regular investing into a habit.

You can also use Auto-Invest to fund your retirement and custodial accounts.


How often do you keep track of the spare change you get from your purchases? Enroll in Round-Ups, and every time you spend with the debit card associated with your linked checking account, Stash will round up your purchase to the nearest dollar.

For example, if you spend $10.50, we’ll automatically round up your purchase by $.50. Once your savings add up to $5 or more, we’ll transfer the spare change to your personal investment account cash balance. From there, you can invest it into any of Stash’s investment offerings.

Please note: Not all banks may support Round-Ups at this time.

Auto-Stash on!

With all of these new and improved features, you can always hit pause, and then resume using them at any time.

Be sure to take advantage of all the great new features that Auto-Stash has to offer, so you can make saving and investing an automatic habit.

If you’re new to investing, Auto-Stash is a great way to begin with recurring investments. You can start investing on Stash with just a dollar (or any dollar amount). Stash also offers fractional shares, or pieces of whole shares, of stocks and ETFs. So you don’t need a whole lot to get going.

By turning on Auto-Stash, you can automate your investments into that portfolio without having to remind yourself.
