Purchase savings bonds through Treasury Direct.
U.S. Savings Bonds make great gifts, or convenient ways to save. The interest paid on the bonds is exempt from state and local income taxes, and they are not negotiable instruments, meaning they cannot be transferred at will.
The U.S. Treasury has announced that paper bonds will no longer be available for purchase after the end of the year. As of December 23, 2011 we will no longer be selling savings bonds at our branches or through online banking. You will only be able to purchase them through the Treasury Direct website.
