I’m looking forward (also) to the first Monday of the month and whether or not NFCU resumes its past practices of announcing new and improved rates…also hope they enhanced their business/loan development departments

Just curious can I bonds be purchased with a credit card? I'm guessing no but just thought it wouldn't hurt to ask.

A bigger Q is "why haven't you bought any Ibonds and know the answer?" What do you find "wrong" with them

Because only recently have they become even remotely interesting to me as the rates have gone up due to massive inflation. Now don't make me go political on you. lol

When I set up my account last year at treasury direct I had to link a bank account (checking or savings).  https://www.treasurydirect.gov/indiv/tools/establishing-an-Individual-treasuryDirect-Account-(2021)....

In the earlier days of the Treasury’s online presence (early 2000’s) you could buy savings bonds with a credit card. Those were the days! And if I recall the annual limits were higher as well. But unfortunately no more. Linked bank accounts only. :(

Indeed, Until somewhere around Dec 2003 it was possible to use a credit card to buy Ibonds online and until around 2007 you could buy up to 30,000 in ibonds online in a year (and, I believe, another 30,000 in paper for a total of 60k in a year)

The Treasury supposedly updates the rates on the first business day in May and November. So, anyone know what time that typically is done?

The May 2022 announcement was issued at 10 AM Eastern Time on Monday, May 2, 2022.

That is typical. (I'm not going to post links to previous announcements of the Bureau of the Fiscal Service.)

The Series I bond fixed rate remains at zero. Composite rate is 9.62% for the first six months of bonds issued from May 2022 through October 2022.

EE bonds issued May 2022 through October 2022 will earn an annual fixed rate of 0.10%.

Thanks, alan1. Also Series EE Bonds Issued from May 1997 through April 2005 now earn 1.60% up from 0.77%. Looks like their system for calculating paper bonds hasn't been updated yet.
