Premium Bonds

I'm doing quite well on these. Just received 3 X 25 cheques . I have 15 grand's worth so I might well invest in quite a few more.

Re: Premium Bonds

You are doing better than me. I have the maximum number allowed and haven't had a win for quite a while

Nope never had a penny and we were given about 125 of them in 1984.

If they've been there for a loooooong time, then it might be an idea to take them out and buy some more.
My father used to say that if premium bonds had been in for years, they needed 'refreshing' and he said it was better to have them all in one block.

He had researched this as far as possible at the time

Both my wife and self have the maximum holdings in Premium Bonds. Every month, we think we might just get a sizeable prize, but over fifteen years we have just had small 25's or 50's.

Still..... next month, it could be the big one!

Statistically, Premium Bonds fail miserably against the ever-increasing RPI. Your money is always safe, and somebody has to win the big prize each month. It's our turn soon.

Sure was nice to see 3 envelopes come through the letter box. Takes my earnings to 250 this year - not great but not too shabby either.
