Savings Bond gift certificates

I would like to know where I can either get or print Savings Bond gift certificates. My bank is always out of them. I give bonds to my grandchildren for their birthdays.

The Treasury’s Savings Bond web site has Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) gift certificates that you can customize and print out on your own computer. Unless you have a very slow Internet connection, use the high-resolution files rather than the low-resolution files.

There are different certificates available for birthdays, baby gifts, graduations, weddings, and holidays. There’s also a “traditional” version you can customize for other occasions.

FDIC Insured Certificates of Deposit can pay 1 or 2% more than savings bonds when held for a similar length of time. See top CD Rates Below:

I was unable to use the Savings Bond Certificate portion of the website.

It would not let me clear or add anything to the certificate. I tried both in High Resolution and in Low resolution.

Barbara – If you had obtained the certificate from a bank, you’d have to fill it out by hand. Maybe you could do the same after printing it out.

The only other alternative would be to use the “Ask the Treasury” link above and to the right. The pdf files this page links to were created by the Treasury, not by me.
