Checked TIO to see if anyone had won and it's vanished!! Surely it isn't contentious 😂

That's so weird! I was ready to link it for you and you're right, it's totally gone!

I didn't win anything this month if that helps winkgrin

Noeuf Tue 03-Oct-17 07:39:15

I didn't either.

There s a thread about a windfall in Active - grin

WhataHexIgotinto Tue 03-Oct-17 07:40:33

There was a premium bonds thread?? Why have I not known this?!

cathyandclare Tue 03-Oct-17 07:43:53

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.

£25 here again!

Noeuf Tue 03-Oct-17 07:50:27

Lucky you!

I've got £2400 now but nothing for ages. I tend to use it a savings account for a year and then pay for something big.

Oh that makes sense cathy

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!

Both DH and I had £25 this month. Better than a slap round the face with a wet fish!

Itis6oclocksomewhere Tue 03-Oct-17 08:07:39

There you all are!!
Thought you’d all had big wins and swanned off on holidays of a lifetime smile

No win here this month.
Roll on November!

AnnabelleLecter Tue 03-Oct-17 08:46:23

No million prize here unfortunately.
I'm still happy with £75 and DH £25 this month.

alittlepieceofme Tue 03-Oct-17 08:53:57

I won 2 £25 prizes last month and another £25 prize two months before. I have always been lucky with my premium bonds. The most I've won is £1000.

LadyBitterSparkles Tue 03-Oct-17 08:57:40

DH won £75 this month smile

I can’t see my result though which is weird.

LadyBitterSparkles Tue 03-Oct-17 09:04:56

Can see them now and a big fat zero for me this month.

craigglen Tue 03-Oct-17 09:12:51

I've never been lucky with mine and haven't won anything for ages but was very pleased to get £50 this month 😀

WhataHexIgotinto Tue 03-Oct-17 19:48:50

We've had £25 about 4 times since the start of the year. Not too bad! X

LaGattaNera Tue 03-Oct-17 20:06:30

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.

Handbag101 Tue 03-Oct-17 20:11:25

Evening gang

Well done on the wins. Nothing for me despite having having £14k now. Oh well. Roll on November. I even checked my app first thing the morning.

We done to all the winners.

I'm hoping to buy another £500 at the end of the month.

eatyourveg Tue 03-Oct-17 20:33:55

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.

jellysock Tue 03-Oct-17 20:39:22

£50 here. I win every month, I'm usually really unlucky!!

lionsleepstonight Tue 03-Oct-17 21:24:05

eatyourveg on the Martin Lewis website it has a calculator which will work it out for you, but the odds will be miniscule!
But you only need one to win!

ihatethecold Tue 03-Oct-17 21:30:24

I’ve just investigated the maximum amount. Needed somewhere to put some cash until we do some building work.

Is there an app then?

Madbengalmum Tue 03-Oct-17 21:34:34

wizzler Tue 03-Oct-17 21:52:20

Found you...

No luck for me or Ddog this month .

Congratulations to the winners !

Itis6oclocksomewhere Wed 04-Oct-17 07:31:07

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.**
