Another February, another premium bond win!
I only won £25 but by massive coincidence(?), I also won this time last year.
I’ve now won £100 in just 12 months, with only a very small premium bond holding of £2,250, beating the oft quoted 1.35% “return”.
Despite recent articles like these talking about premium bonds being ‘bad investments’, I continue to buy a few more bonds each month. And I actually agree, they are rubbish investments but I see the bonds as the ‘cash under my mattress’ so to speak (except actual cash under my mattress isn’t ever going to win anything!), not as investments – my investments are in shares, index trackers, investment trusts and p2p lending.
Anyway, I think I’ll chuck my winnings at my recently depleted emergency fund.
Out Of Office
The big holiday that I’ve been putting money aside for has finally come round, so I won’t be about for a few weeks. Funnily enough, I don’t feel like I’m ready for a holiday as I don’t normally go away so early in the year (not jaded enough from work, haha!) but I’m really looking forward to catching up with the family and trying new things in a country I’ve never visited before.
I don’t have any blog posts scheduled so will do some catch-up ones when I get back.
Hope you all have a great February – see you in March! 🙂
