A better investment
It is not very often that you see a savings bond being given as a gift. Not many people think of a savings bond when they think of a solid investment. With the rising inflation the Series I type savings bond is becoming a better investment than most people think. With the impact of inflation the return on a savings bond as of April 2006 will be around 6.73 percent and it is guaranteed. This number is greater than the current return on the S&P and better than CD's. Not only is the return greater, there is no risk with the bond and it is guaranteed. Don't worry it is not too late to get your savings bond. You must do it before May 2006.
