"I understand that there are limits on the yearly purchases for EE and I bonds (something like 15 and 30 K / year ) --
is this a strict rule ?
Does the site not permit the purchase of more than the above limits ?
I have heard that some books on bonds tell the Gov does not really care. is this true - has anyone been told they were not allowed to purchase more ?"

3.3. Purchase limits

You may buy up to $30,000 of I Bonds in your own name each calendar year.

You may buy up to $15,000 ($30,000 face value) of Series EE Savings Bonds in your own name each calendar year.

There is no purchase limit for Series HH Savings Bonds.

Purchases of one series do not count against your limit for the other series. Savings bonds you buy as gifts or prizes for someone else do not count against your annual purchase limits.
