    Premium Bonds draw dates 27th Jan 09 at 6:31 PM
    Does anyone know the best time of month to buy and sell premium bonds as to make sure your bonds are in the monthly draws?

    I can't find the answer on the NS&I website.

    Buy them when you like, from what I remember your cash has to be in a month before you get into the draw.
    When you withdraw you fill in a form and nominate the month you wish to cash out after, you will have the money in your bank within a few days, they are fairly quick and reliable.

    Any bonds bought on or before the 31 Jan, will be eligible for the March draw.
    I used to be indecisive but now I am not sure.

    You buy them towards the end of a month .... so you're parting with your money as late as possible :-

    ...... and you sell them early in the month - in order you get access as soon after the previous draw as possible?
    If you want to test the depth of the water .........don't use both feet !
