You did very well with the chart. You did forget to note that the EE Bonds are no longer credited with interest monthly. I do not recall if it is quarterly or semi-annually now. In any event, if you cash the EE before the Interest is credited you don't get it.

I also have EE's. I had always used them as Mad money. Since they can be purchased in small denominations it was easier to buy them then to join a Christmas or Vacation club. Unfortunately, you can no longer easily buy Savings Bonds. You must now fill out a form and they are mailed to you from the Treasury.

There is also a limit on how many EE Bonds one can purchase in a year. I think it is in the $20K range but you can check that for yourself.
