A savings bond??? Surely you can get better return than that, can't you?>>>>>

Don't criticize for using savings bonds. It is savings. Plus, a little known benefit of savings bonds. If you don't list these on financial aid applications, they won't be found and can make a person's assets look smaller than they really are. This can improve one's chances of getting aid where if the bonds are added to the equation, a person may not get help.

And EE bonds currently earn 85% of a T-Bill 5 year rate. That's not bad considering the low risk and it is near the rate in some money markets.
