Thank you so much for posting that. I have purchased bonds for my friends two babies Christenings and we also received one for our son when he was born. Although I thought they were somewhat a thing of the past it's nice to know that they are still out there.
I always purchased bonds through my employer via payroll deduction. Today, each month we have a $100 bond that reaches final maturity and no longer gains interest. That $100 bond purchased for $50 in 1981, is paying out $293.80. Very nice monthly spending money in retirement.
