Use I-Bonds For Inflation Protection

Friday, March 1, 2013 - 7:58 AM
This US News article is a good reminder that I Bonds are still a good deal in today's environment. Of course, there are downsides like the $10K annual purchase limit and a 0% fixed rate component.

I Bond's inflation component is based on the CPI-U. We'll know the next I Bond inflation component in mid April. It had been on tract to be near zero, but the recent surge in gas prices may push it up by April.
