Even so, make sure it's uncallable money.

For sure. I once got a 13 1/4% tax-exempt bond. What a deal!
I clipped a coupon or two, and then they called it as interest rates dropped. And I did not find out about it for almost a year, so I had an opportunity cost there too. And I never found another bond, tax exempt, that paid anywhere near that. Now I have no tax exempt bonds. In fact, no bonds except those in Dodge and Cox Income fund that is almost entirely bonds.
