No, I'm not talking about Sesame Street! Ha ha!! What do you think about Premium Bonds? Do you think they're worth it?? Has anyone won any on here? I've looked on the Martin Lewis website and he says your better off with a savings account as you'll get more for your return, unless you just want to be in it for the fun.

I have a premium bond and yes I've won on it a few times. My parents set it up for me when I was teenager. I've never really paid attention to it but I know there is money there if I am ever stuck.

My neighbour had a large amount of money in Bonds and was always winning. My husband has a small amount and hardly gets anything. So there is your answer. This is the general rule with bonds.

I have won 5k a few years back, other than that mostly £25. Needs to be used only if it is loose cash as better rates else where.

I’ve never won but I only have a couple of £1s but a friend wins quite often. She recognises the envelopes in her mail and holds the maximum amount. With interest rates being so low I can understand why people put there savings in premium bonds.

Interest rates are terrible at the moment, so it does make sense in a way to put your money in one of these, especially if you get a win ☺
