- It’s Premium Bonds draw day.
Only just bought some.Posted 10 months ago
(See my previous thread about needing a new van) Have nearly enough money for van, depending on what I can get for old broken one. Have taken out a credit card with no interest on purchases for 27 months to buy it with, funds to pay it off will sit in premium bonds until the interest free bit runs out then I’ll sell them and pay it off. Bit of admin hassle but you never know, might be worth it. With interest rates so low on savings nothing to lose really.
Also, it was worryingly easy to get a credit card, I thought it was supposed to be really hard post-credit crunch? Took 20 mins to get £6.5k! Was hoping for 2. (not going to spend it all, can’t afford that for a van) but with a day-to-day card, a special one for abroad and an overdraft facility that seems to have crept up every time I check it I could easily borrow a year’s salary at 20% with no hope of paying it back, madness. (Note to self, find out if it’s possible to block access to the Santa Cruz website from my computer, just in case…)dannybgoodeSubscriber
We’ve got the full £50k in and so far have had a tickle every month bar one since January. Usually £75 but the odd £25 as well.
This latest draw though we got £525 – goes nicely toward the holiday.
Everyone I know with £10,000’s in gets a good return. I used to just have a couple of hundred in and never got so much as a fiver.Posted 8 months agoisitafoxMember
I’ve just opened an account as a back burner savings on the off chance we need a rainy day fund in the future.Posted 8 months ago
Just chucking £200 a month in as it saves me dibbing into a savings account with online banking and there’s the slim chance I might win something which will be auto reinvested.
Two sister in laws drop £25-50 a couple of times a year with a few grand in so always worth a go.
Be nice if they told you amount in email rather then getting me all excited to find I have won another £25
many years ago I got the email in my apartment in Perth Australia – i managed to lock my self out with the wrong password.
i reset the password and they sent the letter to my house – in the UK , where there was no one.
I had to wait 6 weeks till i came back to uk.
Found out i had won 525 quid in that draw when i got back which was nice.Posted 8 months ago
