Stash, an investor’s opinion

Stash Logo
I recently joined Stash – get $20 worth of free stock just for joining last year in 2020. I chose the cheapest plan only costing $1 a month. So far Stash has been a lot of fun for me. I love investing in companies and ETFs that are higher priced and never seem to come down using fractional share investing instead of buying full shares. Fractional share investing allows the investor to scale in much easier because you don’t have to buy a full share.

When I first started Stash I was on the weekly auto invest plan, this was a bit too much for me so I moved it to monthly auto invest. You can still buy shares of stock at any time in-between, which I do often when opportunity arises to buy the dip. Unfortunately not every publicly traded company, ETF is available for trading at Stash, but I’m OK with that since I use other brokers along with Stash.

Also for being a member of Stash you get a debit card to buy whatever you want. When you use this card at a company that has a qualified stock with Stash, you’ll get a stock reward. So far the reward has been a whopping 1 cent for me each time. I bought some Starbucks coffee with it and that 1 cent has an 18% return on it so far. I’ll take it.

In summary, I plan on keeping my account with Stash as the $1 month fee is very affordable. I also haven’t seen any other fees when buying fractional shares of companies outside the auto invest periods. That’s a huge benefit as other brokers will still charge full price commissions on fractional share transactions. Join me, join Stash here to get the $20 in free stock!
