Redeem U.S. Savings Bonds

Believe it or not, there are still people who have U.S. Savings Bonds. Many baby boomers acquired them years ago and have been sitting on them waiting for … well, I don’t know what. But they have them!

U.S. Savings Bonds

There is more than $23 Billion worth of bonds that have matured but they have not been cashed in.

It’s time to get your money!

A $100 Series E bond purchased 55 years ago for a child is now worth about $827.

To many that seem like a waste of money for the return, however, you have to take into account the times and what was available to the people that brought them. Many years ago this was a wise investment!

But it’s time to get your cash because you can make your money work better for you in today’s world.

Cash in your U.S. Saving Bonds and invest your money in yourself. Learn how to make money working from home! It’ll be the best investment you’ll ever make!

16 Billionaires who started working from home by Launch Gallery

Waking up and heading to an office is so five years ago. As technology allows for greater opportunities for flextime and working remotely, the need for a traditional workday – and workplace – is beginning to evaporate for anyone whose job can be done online, as part of a communications network.

So too is the need for a spread of office space to get a business up and running—launching an enterprise from your desk or kitchen counter at home has never been easier. And those who protest that they simply can’t get down to business working from home in their pajamas should take a look at how successful some work-from-home entrepreneurs have been in recent years. (Check out our slideshow above)

Take Jan Koum and Brian Acton, for example. The two former Yahoo employees took a great idea they had when they were literally unemployed and turned it into billions. Their company, WhatsApp, allowed for a rich, free instant messaging experience that caught on with an international swath of users. The two were generating north of $20 million a year when they sold it to Facebook for $19 billion in 2014. Acton and Koum are estimated today to be worth $4.6 billion and $9.1 billion respectively. But when they started out, neither was working and both had job applications for jobs at Facebook rejected. Their work to develop WhatsApp was done largely in Acton’s kitchen and at internet cafes.

 Another home-working winner is Markus Persson, creator of Minecraft, the international mega-hit sandbox indie game. Persson, an experienced and gifted game developer, had built the program on his off hours while working with photo sharing company, Jalbum. He quit his job in 2010 to focus on Minecraft full time. When he sold the program in 2015 to Microsoft for $2.5 billion in cash, it had been downloaded over 100 million times and grossed more than $700 million since launching in 2011. The game has even inspired an annual convention, MineCon, in which users from all over the world assemble and discuss the program.

Then there’s Sara Blakely, founder of Spanx. Before designing and launching her line of body complimenting hosiery, she had established herself as a successful door-to-door saleswoman, selling fax machines and office supplies. Her own desire for more comfortable garb led her to design and patent her own footless pantyhose on her off hours, working from home. In 2000 Blakely launched her products and has continued to expand the list of offerings to include a line of slimming denim to products that include everything from bras to yoga apparel. In March 2016, FORBES pegged Blakely’s net worth at $1.19 billion.
