    You are in for a disappointment then.

    Premium bonds are a lottery. On average, the payouts are lower than savings accounts. I have a client that put £10k Dec 03 and won above average in the first year. This currrent year he has hardly won a thing and unless something happens between now and december, I will be placing that 10k back into his proper portfolio.

    I have never come across a big winner with Premium bonds.

    I work in a bank and its quite amusing to see the winning cheques that get paid into accounts. I usually see £50 quite regularly, but had a £2700 the other day. Lucky person!

  • I quite like the idea of premium bonds, not that I hold any. When clients ask about them i say they are fine, but basically a gamble which the outcome is most lilkely a rate around a poorly paying savings accout with the risk of not keeping up with inflation. But yes of course you could be a millionionaire.

    I always thought I would get some when I have enough money for it not to matter as they would be fun. ;)
    Views expressd are just that, views and opinion, they are not financial advice, as that requires much detail and work and everyone is different. Advice should be taken, in my opinion, from a professional financial advisor. PS. Good luck. ;)

    I put £4000 in in January and have won 3 lots of £50 so far! I love checking the site each month to see if I've won and so far I am way ahead on interest rates.

    No you are not.

    You are running at 4.5% average which is lower than what you would have got on a savings account.

    It's tax free so he is probably way ahead of everything but an isa.

    Anyone know which date the draw is held on each month?

    I had a quick browse on the nsandi site but didn't find anything, surely it's a fixed date isn't it?

    Thanks!
