Community-minded members like myself volunteer to dispose of these expired products in a responsible manner. This goes especially for Coates, which has ...

cd's would be another easy option... you would just have to renew (and hopefully add to it) it when it comes due.
i just checked and my local bank is offering 5.05% on a 12 month term.

my wife and i use these all the time when we've got some extra cash we would like to hide from ourselves.
