Should you invest in Premium Bonds?

Unlike other savings accounts, premium bonds do not pay interest. This means your money is not making anything each month and will gradually lose its value as inflation creeps up.

Instead, holders of Premium Bonds are entered into a monthly prize draw.

The more bonds you buy, the greater your chances are of winning. The NS&I says that the average saving's interest rate is 1.4% after regular "wins".

But you are not guaranteed to win. In fact, the NS&I says the odds of winning for each £1 bond number are 24,500 to one.

So even if you invest thousands of pounds you might not win anything for years.

On the plus side, Premium Bonds can be cashed in at any time and as they are protected by the Government your investment is 100% safe, which some may find appealing.
