I'm now 4 months into the 6 month [182 day actually] Sept/18 promo with same rate; maybe that's why I've not received an email or online invitation yet, or at all?
We've actually been getting 3.15%, due to a B of Canada interest hike shortly after this promo started, and RBC raised their eSavings rate accordingly a few days later.
IF I got 'invited' between now and when my current promo ends March 28th, I wonder if they would extend it to April 30th, rather than risk me moving my balance to another FI ?
