The I-series Savings Bonds were mentioned in several recent threads. If you are buying them then there is a trick, purchase then on the internet using a credit card that gives you a 'perk' based on your purchases.

I bought some a while back for my sons collage savings because they are not taxed for some collage expenses(read the limitations closely). I got rebate coupons for %3 good toward Subaru car repairs. There was a limit of $5000 per transaction but you can make multiple transactions on the same day depending on your credit limit.
