My only option was Treasury Direct for I bonds I bought in the 2004-05 timeframe.
Someone correct me if I am mistaken.

My EE bonds are 96-97 vintage, before Treasury Direct existed. I haven't done the conversion yet. It's on the ToDo list. Somewhere...

I'm pretty sure you can buy $5,000 paper bonds AND $5,000 of electronic I-Bonds each year, according to the TD site.

Quote:

Maximum purchase
(per calendar year):
$5,000 in TreasuryDirect and $5,000 in paper bondsDenominations:Paper bonds: $50, $75, $100, $200, $500, $1,000, and $5,000

Electronic bonds via TreasuryDirect: purchase to the penny for $25 or more

I haven't actually purchased any paper I-bonds but I'm sure some folks here have.

If you redeem a savings bond that you own on Treasury Direct, how do you get the money? Is it an electronic funds transfer into your bank account, or what?

That is how I do it.

It is easy and in your account by the end of the next business day as I recall (been a while since I redeemed any).
