The Bureau of the Public Debt announced that as of January 1, 2012, paper savings bonds will no longer be sold at financial institutions. This action, which supports the U.S. Department of the Treasury's goal to increase the number of electronic transactions with citizens and businesses, will save American taxpayers approximately $70 million over the first five years.
You can however, purchase bonds directly from the U.S. Treasury. Go to the Treasury's website to learn about purchasing savings bonds: www.treasurydirect.gov/tdhome.htm
