Thank you Foolferlove and JB
You both answered my questions and raised an interesting point.
What happens if the inflation rate is -1.8% or lower? I'll admit the likelihood of this isn't high but run the numbers in this case.
"the redemption value of your I Bonds will remain the same until the earnings rate becomes greater than zero."
I actually didn't realize that I bonds could have zero growth, I thought the fixed portion would always pay. I'll keep thinking about my options
