I still have the 2 $5,000 savings bonds that I purchased back in 2002/2003, the DL miles I earned having long been spent on a memorable AF Concorde trip.

I didn't plan to hold the bonds this long, but with the crash of the Internet and housing bubbles, those savings bonds (worth only about $12-13K now) weren't such a bad addition to my portfolio after all.
