Electronic Savings Bonds Don't Make Good Gifts

Sunday, March 25, 2012 - 9:44 PM
Now that paper bonds can no longer be purchased, you'll have to buy savings bonds online at Treasury Direct even if you're giving the savings bond as a gift. The FW member CPAESQ has a good description of what this requires. As you can see, the online process pretty much kills giving savings bonds as gifts.
