I think it was in thread that disappears after 30/90 days. I've not won either, first month not to get anything since buying loads of bonds in December. Think I'm on course to keep up with interest rates but unless I have a bumper next two months I won't beat them.
I've had £8k since last March and added to it so it's now £14k...I've so far won one £25 last month 🤔 It's definitely not a sure fire way to beat the interest on a bank account but I find I definitely save better with it as if I take money out, it isn't immediate like it is when I used an actual savings account so it builds up rather then me taking some out to "replace next month" which never happens!
3 lots of £25 this month but many months this year with nothing and I have maximum holding. 10 years or so ago I used to get something every month but nowadays think lots more people have bonds as interest rates so low for savers.
Anyone know just how to work out my chances of ever getting a payout? My gp bought me one premium bond when I was born. I was made to memorise the number and can still recite it 53 years later. I've never won a penny to date and wonder if it is better to cash it in/chuck it in the bin or could I be the one in a zillion to win something with only one bond.
ihatethecold There is an app.** I have an iPhone so got it from App Store. It reveals your winnings on results day, or in my case my lack of winnings! Think it keeps track of the last 6 months winnings too.**
