Today I gathered up all of the savings bonds that my wife and I had accumilated over the years and took them to the bank to be cashed in. It’s the first time I had ever tried to cash in a savings bond and well the process wasn’t entirely too painful. We ended having almost $1000 in savings bonds between us and we’ll be using the money to pay off our HELOC instead. I’m also happy because now I don’t have to worry about misplacing or losing the bond certificates, just bugs me not having electronic proof my assets. If you want to know what your savings bonds are worth a good website to use is http://wwws.publicdebt.treas.gov/BC/SBCPrice (actually came up with the same amounts the bank did).
