My 16-year-old son wanted to try his hand at investing, so we got him a $25 Stockpile gift card for Christmas ($30 to buy).
Upon entering the gift card code, I tried to set up the account and got caught in some kind of loop. After multiple attempts, I emailed customer support and figured they were just bogged down with new business. Finally, in mid-February (2018), and having NOT received a reply, I logged in and was able to successfully complete the original signup. HOWEVER, there was no record that I had entered the gift card code. When I tried to enter it, it said the code had already been used.
I emailed support again politely asking for help. Ten days later, and still no reply. I guess ultimately it is a good lesson. Investing is risky, but now you know that Stockpile is a bad investment.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
