Company / App Name: SBS – Savings Bond Wizard
What does it do?
Calculates both individual and total cost, interest earned and redemption value of any and all I, E or EE series savings bonds. It can value bonds individually or can read and value a list of bonds stored in a spreadsheet (xlsx or csv).
Why do we need it?
The Treasury Direct used to offer a product called The Savings Bond Wizard, which was a tool with similar spreadsheet import capabilities. This tool has recently been retired, creating a gap in the market for such a product.
Who is it for?
1. Any individual who has purchased and is looking to find the current (and historical) redemption value of their savings bonds.
2. Individuals looking for an alternative option to the decomissioned Savings Bond Wizard.
What makes it stand out from the crowd?
It’s the only new tool I’ve seen to date that fills the gap mentioned in the ‘Why do we need it?’ category.
Creating valuable, informative content to drive qualified traffic to the app.
Building an interest rate and value progression line graph capability for a user to track their bonds valuation changes over time.
