By Emma Johnson


TreasuryDirect is offering Series I Savings Bonds with 5.27% return! Nobody likes inflation but if you are able to hold some cash in I bonds, 5.27% definitely helps!

Savings Bond interest is exempt from state and local income tax!

The 5.27% rate is good until April 30th, 2024

Maximum of $10,000 per calendar year can be deposited.
You can do more than $10,000 if you want to gift it to your child or others.

Locked for 1 year, and 3 month interest penalty if redeemed before 5 years.

RATE CAN DROP, but you can always just withdraw and take the 3 month interest penalty which isn't much compared to the rate you are getting.
