Answering my own question about cashing them in ....

Think it takes 8 working days after they receive your application, to get a refund

Re: Premium Bonds

I have some Premium Bonds and I used to have regular wins! These days, I think the winnings I receive only amount to how much interest I would have earned in the bank!

May be worth taking them out and putting them back in again

Re: Premium Bonds

You probably know, Mark, that you can opt to have your winnings in three ways:
(1) Sent by a cheque.
(2) Paid directly into your nominated bank account.
(3) Reinvested in new Premium Bonds. In this case, you do not need the minimum investment sum of 100.

Compared to National Lottery tickets, I believe them to be much better. If you lose on one month, you still have the same chances the next month - without having to pay for more tickets.

Re: Premium Bonds

I have a few and have the occasional win.
I would like to invest in gold. That loverly shiny yellow metal. Hold it in my hands and drool and have orgasims over it.
But when you buy it you pay a premium. When you go to sell you also pay a premium.
So where can you get it on the cheap?

Re: Premium Bonds

Today is the 1st of November.
I'm expecting a telephone any minute now to tell me I've won a million pounds.

I shall have a slap-up party - and you're all invited...

The 'phones ringing ...............................

Damn! Apparently Microsoft have detected a fault on my PC, but a nice Indian gentleman is presently mending it for me.

It's gonna be my lucky day, I just know it.

Re: Premium Bonds

Thanks for that, Jazzi.
My Mickey Mouse watch wasn't worth the 95pence I paid for it on the market.

You're about right Rachel. I recently cashed mine in and within about 8 days the money was back in the bank.
The Post Office won't supply the forms any more though, not even a main post office won't (well ours didn't anyway), you have to fill in the request directly on line now.
