When looking at I-bonds one should compare relative to savings accounts and 1 year CD's. Best interest rates for CD's/savings are around 0.85%APR.I plan to pull the money out of I-bonds after 12-months, so lose last 3-months of interest. So overall interest rate will be (1.76+0.5*the unknown interest rate). It looks like this will beat the 0.85% rate available elsewhere.Also I-bonds are exempt from state taxes, which are around 10% in California.So for e-fund/cash, I-bonds look like the best deal at the moment especially for high income state/local tax locations.--whyohwhyoh
