  • Oh here's an answer you don't want- depends on what type of savings bond you have. You'll have to look into it more. Some bonds go up and down with stocks- some go up about 3% every year no matter what. Some are adjusted for inflation. It really just depends.

  • Maybe you could research it first and then ask her. Tell her that someone was talking to you about savings bonds and how some just go up but others rose and fell in value depending on the stock market, and that it made you curious to know what kind your mil had bought for the kids.
