Lower Taxes

I knew that would get your curiousity...anybody has their employer withdraw a set amount per paycheck that goes towards say EE bonds for example? Do you think its worth it? Do you save that money and invest it instead?
Be what you want to attract.

I have the money sent to my retirement account instead. Savings bonds are too conservative, IMO, for the long-term time horizon I'm looking towards.

For safe/conservative returns, I prepay on our mortgage - 10% of the principle payment - each month.

Yeah in Australia it's called 'Salary Sacrifice', I can use it to send pre-tax earnings to my retirement fund or purchase shares in the company I work for and pay less tax.
