What are Bonus Bonds?

What is a Bonus Bond?

A Bonus Bond is a unit in the scheme.

Each eligible Bonus Bond you hold gives you one entry into the monthly prize draw. In order for your Bonus Bond to be eligible, you must hold it for at least one calendar month. For example, if you buy a Bonus Bond in March, that Bonus Bond won’t be in the monthly prize draw in April, but it will be in any monthly prize draws from the first day of May onwards.

What is the scheme?

The scheme is a managed investment scheme. Your money is pooled with other bondholders' money and invested in fixed interest assets and cash and cash equivalents.

Instead of earning interest or receiving returns, each eligible Bonus Bond you hold gives you one entry into the monthly prize draws.

How much does a Bonus Bond cost?

Each Bonus Bond costs $1.

Who can buy Bonus Bonds?

Any person can buy Bonus Bonds for themselves or jointly with other people.

Companies, incorporated clubs and societies, and trusts can’t buy Bonus Bonds unless they were a Bondholder on 13 September 2013 and still hold Bonus Bonds.
