I-Bonds Discussion Thread (continuation of the FW thread)


what about the fixed rate? With 2+% on money markets, there has to be a decent fixed rate soon, right?


Tipswatch is predicting an increase in the fixed rate portion based on recent 5- and 10-year TIPS yielding.

I-Bond’s fixed rate rises to 0.50%


Can’t find some of my paper bonds and they need to know the month I bought them… I know I bought them during the last hurrah on FWF when we could get CC points and high interest, right before interest rates crashed.

Why Can’t they look up via just SS #?


Any updates here?

The new rate is coming up. What should we expect based on CPI numbers ?


Final March CPI will be released on Wed April 10 at 830am, then you might know something.

I will be backing up the truck to buy at this 0.50% rate. It is a fair rate and I may look at liquidating some of the 0% fixed rate I Bonds I bought five or more years ago once they roll into the next, lower earning period and turning them into muni bonds.


What do you need a truck for? 10K worth of dollar coins? :wink:
