U.S. Savings Bonds

Is there a method of adding Savings bond prices and have them update automatically? I have 100 U.S. savings bonds and I entered them all in an Investment account with the name US Savings Bonds filled by the Serial Number. It is cumbersome to update the prices manually every 6 months.

    I don't think so.  The Treasury dept used to have a good little program for it.  But they discontinued it.  But the replacement isn't too bad to use.  I'm using it.  After you enter your bonds you save the htm file to your computer then you can launch it whenever you want to get the current values.

    I just update the total value in Quicken.  I have a printout of all the individual bonds.

    I agree - the Treasury Savings Bond Wizard was nice to use - and then they discontinued it...
    And replaced it with an online web tool - that uses the web page HTML file as a data file you save on your computer.
    This only works for certain types of bonds....
