Oh, Oh! I should have bought D-bonds instead of I-bonds. <grin>

I-bonds are "D-bonds" as well. They have a 3% minimum yield which is better than any Money Market or government bond would give you under [severe] deflation

If you expect deflation, the best "D-bond" is just the standard 30-year US Treasury security. That was the best performing investment during the Great Depression.
