    Very nice mate!

    do u always win something or could you not win money at all?

    You don't always win. I've had £200 since 1989, got another £100 in 2007, … You don't always win. I've had £200 since 1989, got another £100 in 2007, and another £2000 in Jan 2010. You can not win, but you also don't lose your money either. Not sure what the minimum is, was looking at the winnings for this month and someone only bought theres in Oct 09 and won the milltion.



    so in jan 10 u won 2k? hmmm

    is there a site to check which ones to put money into etc?

    I think the minimum is £100. You don't always win it's a monthly draw each £1 gets an entry in a sort of lottery with the highest prize of £1,000,000 you do have the benifit that you don't lose any of the money you put in so in a years time you can get your £100 back. The downside is you could leave them in there and win nothing

    ahh right hmm ill have a gander

    Im not really a fan of premium bonds (infact i hate them) but glad to hear that you won a decent sum. What u planning to do with it?

    I don't know about £100, I've got £15 worth that my parents bought when I was a kid. Saying that, I don't really know anything about them except that I've never won anything!

    My dad has like £1 in them, my mum recons the £100 limit came in like 15 y … My dad has like £1 in them, my mum recons the £100 limit came in like 15 years ago.



    That would explain it, mine are dated April 5th 1983 lol

    well done op bought some for my son when he was born and he never won anything oh well gotta be in it to win it

    more money invested more chance u could win in theory yes?

    might chuck some in there in a few months

    i got £500.000 with my premium bond but thats with £30.000 in there though so well worth it

    well done, lucky you. I've had some since 1957 and they've never won anything ( only £3 worth though)
