One of the unfortunate side effects of the societal shift toward digital money is that people end up being more careless with their funds when they don't see the physical cash disappearing from their wallet, so the Acorns Spend card uses high-quality materials to bring some of the gravity back to chequing. The new debit card is made out of the rare heavy metal tungsten, giving it a weighty and solid feel beyond the traditional plastic.

Not only does the Acorns Spend card help encourage smart spending through the physical qualities of the card, but the chequing account itself is also designed to let consumers spend their money wisely. All purchases with the card automatically contribute a percentage to one's savings account, letting people save for the future even as they make expenses.
