Where to Buy Series EE Bonds
From Banks and Other Financial Institutions:

You can buy Series EE bonds from most banks, credit unions, or savings institutions. These institutions accept funds and purchase orders and forward the order to a Federal Reserve Bank where the bonds are issued and mailed according to your instructions. You should receive your bonds within 15 business days; the bonds begin earning interest from the first day of the month in which you buy the bond. If you're buying a bond as a last-minute gift, ask the teller for a free gift certificate!

Through a Financial Institution's Internet Banking System:

Many financial institutions offer online account access through Internet banking systems, and some are starting to sell U.S. Savings Bonds through Internet banking. It's a convenient new way to buy bonds--you can buy bonds anytime without leaving your home!

You can check our list to see if your financial institution offers this service. If it's not offered, ask your financial institution to contact us to learn why savings bonds should be part of its Internet banking system.

Through TreasuryDirect:

Through a Payroll Savings Plan:

Series EE bonds can be purchased through the Payroll Savings Plan and through the new electronic payroll feature of TreasuryDirect. Now you can use the new payroll feature in Treasury Direct to send funds to your TreasuryDirect account through a simple direct deposit deduction.

From a Bond-A-Month Program:

Many financial institutions offer savings bonds through a "Bond-A-Month" savings plan. This plan allows you to automatically buy bonds on a regular schedule (not necessarily monthly). This automatic saving for yourself or a child or grandchild, for example, can be a great convenience. Contact your financial institution for more information.
