I’ve never won anything from Prize Bonds, but I know many people who have won € 75.
Word just in from the company that this week’s Prize Bond “Star prize” of € 20,000.00 goes to lucky Prize Bond number RZ 135527 held in County Cork. The lucky bond was purchased in 2012.
The company continues by saying: There were over 8,000 prizes awarded in this week’s Prize Bond Draw, amounting to over €480,000.
Prize Bonds are a State savings product which, instead of paying interest, offers bond holders the chance to win cash prizes every week. All winnings are tax-free, and Prize Bonds can be cashed in at any time after the minimum holding period of three months.
Prize Bonds can be purchased by Direct Debit, online at www.StateSavings.ie, by telephone to callsave 1850 30 50 60 or at your local Post Office. Prize Bond holders can check draw results online at www.StateSavings.ie. The main winning numbers are also available in most Post Offices.
