New bonds issued May through October will pay a puny 2.57% through the next six months.

EE bonds are down only slightly, to 3.96%.

Hope you bought your I-bonds a few days ago. I haven't seen a fixed rate component posted yet, but I'm guessing it's probably only about 1%. That's down from 3.6% a couple years ago. And that's just the fixed rate portion!

So much for that alternative, at least for now...

#29, glad he loaded up when the fixed rate component was 3.4%
