    I don't really know. About 5 years ago I put £10 in a premium bond and it just sits there on the off chance you win a monthly prize. To be honest, you would be better finding a high interest savings account.

    I wouldn't even know how to retreive it now :shock:

    You could put it into an ISA instead, or start a trust fund for her to be released when shes 16/18/21 etc which you can put things like birthday and xmas money into :)

    Premium bonds are ok but its more or less a lottery so your not guaranteed to get anything back :)

    Dan's got £1200 worth, as gifts............the lil bugger is richer than me!!
    I like the fact you can cash them in whenever you want and obviously you have a chance to win money. Saying that though my mums OH has £20k in them for about 10 years and has only won the odd £100 here and there.
