About a year ago, I was on the look out for other interesting avenues to invest money into. I tried out several of these companies that were either giving away free money or free stocks as incentive to sign up for their service.

After a number of services gave me free money or free stocks, I started to fall in love with the concept that one of these services provided.

Have you ever been to a store where they ask you if you are willing to round up your purchase that you make and they will give the change to a local charity that the store is supporting? This service does the same thing, except that it’s for every one of your purchases and guess what, it’s not going into a charity, but rather it’s going into your investment fund.

What this service does for you, is detects that you spend $7.67 in your checking account and it comes in and takes 33 cents out of your account to round that purchase up to $8.
