"Happiness is the 'VIP Membership'. Since entering my first bonds, I have made it a habit to go in and log each one when it arrives in the mail. It is great to go in every month and watch the interest grow and the savings grow (which is more than I can say for my stocks right now). We figure when we retire in about 6 years, we can, whenever needed, sell bonds each month to supplement our income.
We started with $50, now have $50's, $100's, and $200's growing in I Bonds, and a few EE Bonds, too. We started too late to be able to hold most of the bonds until full maturity, but with the I Bonds we can start cashing them in, if needed, after holding them for 5 years without incurring any penalties. We also have one IRA, one Roth IRA, one roll-over, and a SAR-SEP going. I think come retirement, we will be okay. Thank you for making it easier to understand the bonds and to track the growth."
"Your VIP Membership software saved us $785.00! We had been saving
bonds for several years to buy a new house. We had around 200+ bonds
(in all denominations). We took them to a local bank to redeem. After the branch manager calculated up the total value her figures did
not agree with what we had with your software. She was $785.00
under what showed with your software. She refigured and came
closer, but still not right. So, she recalculated the individual value
of each bond. There were a lot of mistakes. Her new figures were
closer but no cigar! After spending 3/4 of an hour, she was
still $100.00 off of what we showed. As she still could not find
the difference between her amount and what we showed, she took our (or
rather your) amount and wrote us a deposit slip for the amount shown
on your list. If we had not used your software we would have
been out $785.00!! Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!"
- "I thought that I had lost my savings bonds forever. My husband and I had recently moved. As most people do,
we had cleaned out a lot of old junk from the attic and over the garage and thrown it all away. A few weeks later, my husband asked where the box with all of our important
papers was. Neither one of us could remember what we had done with it. After scouring around our new home, we still couldn't find it. We finally
gave up looking and started to try to remember what was in the box. A lot of old family pictures, our wedding pictures and license, our children's
birth certificates, immunization records, and lord knows what else. And then we remembered that box was also where we had stored all of our savings bonds. Both my husband and I had been buying savings bonds for the last 20 plus years. We knew that we had over $74,000.00 in bonds because
that was what your VIP Membership Alerts! Report told us our bonds were worth. I was sick to my stomach. We had thrown out over $74,000.00. And then my husband remembered that he had entered all of our bonds into your
VIP Membership program on the Internet. My husband dialed up his computer and went to our account on the VIP Membership site. There was the list of all of
our bonds. We also saw that on your web site www.savingsbonds.com, where you have another program for people to contact the government
when they think they have lost some bonds. We completed the on-line form, (using your on-line program), attached our list of bonds to it and mailed it to the
government like we lost the bonds. The letter also said that if some one should find the old bonds, they wouldn't be able to cash them in since
we had reported them as being lost. We are so happy that we used your VIP Membership service. Who knows what would have happened to our $74,000.00 in bonds if we
hadn't used your service. I am telling all of my friends to use your VIP Membership program to keep their bonds safe."
