Its always worth dropping them a letter to confirm your postal address and ask them if you have any other wins you aren't aware of.

I know people who swear that they win just after they contact them.

I've recently written a post and I'd love to have a discussion here about it and the topic I'm talking about:

https://katykicker.com/how-much-do-you-really-win-on-premium-bonds/

I held my bonds for 6 months (Still got them) and won £450...

Anyone else here who holds 50k? If so, would you share what you won in 6 months, or a year? Was it in line with the 1.15% or 1.40% even that it now is?

I'd love to know and know others enjoy this type of conversation as my post has been pretty popular!
Hello Katy, sorry to hijack your post but I had been reading your blog and noticed you rate clixsense quite highly and also notice it's on your signature. Do you still rate it as high or do you feel there are other sites that equal it. I'm thinking of joining and would be glad of any insider info! Thanks. On the point of premium bonds I've had mine for 15 years and not one tiny £1.00!

Hi love, not a problem at all @saffi420 . I don't use it much at all these days. Much better sites. For surveys I'd suggest Prolific Academic!

£75 for me this month.

Most surprisingly is one of our family accounts holds £2,025 and that won 2 prizes this month - £25 x 2! So that's a little boost to the car fund!
