I use to be a bank teller. I don't think you need any info except for their name.

 

I could be wrong though, geez I am no help at all.

Yeah you need his social and usually a beneficiary name on it. Like either of his parents name. And their address.

What type of bond you want, I, E or EE and in what denomination.

That should be it.

Hope this helps.

make sure you find out exactly how long it really takes for them to mature, my grandparents got me a bunch when I was a kid (every birthday and christmas) and thought they would be helpful when it came time for college, so clearly at least 15 years later, only about two were mature and I wound up paying so much in taxes they really weren't worth anything. there are different kinds of bonds though so just make sure you are getting the right kind.

I am pretty sure you can use the parents SS# too if you do not have your Godson's ss#. and I totally agree with Christine. I have a ton of bonds and what you actually make is not huge and it take forever. It is a nice way to make him save some money but any thoughts on more of a keepsake? Like a Bible with monogram or something? I dont know guess my experience with Bonds isnt very good.

Yeah, the other ladies are right. It takes so long to reach it's full maturity and plus the rate isn't that great. If your dead set on getting him one you can always go to savingsbond.gov to read more info on them.

hmm well how often is a little boy going to wear a cross necklace?

Let's see, how old is he? Can he really open it himself? Otherwise I say something that is a keep sake would be nice, I personally have a bible and a cross from my Christening. If you want to get him something fun, what about an educational toy?

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
