Got this targeted email yesterday:

Great news. You’re already enrolled and are currently enjoying 2%* interest on new deposits into your President’s Choice Financial® Interest Plus savings account until August 31, 2017. As an added benefit, you will earn 2.5%* interest on those deposits plus any new deposits from September 1 until October 31, 2017

I'm already enrolled under their last 2% offer, but I did not receive any notification of an increase as noted above. I guess I am not one of their targets.

Anyway, already getting 2.5% at Ideal until year end (one of the few to get into the narrow window of opportunity offered by Ideal).

Could be just a delay in e-mail. I'd give it a few days.

Also, check the Junk or Spam folder. Sometimes, messages about money can get misclassified as junk e-mail.

Does anybody know how to check if that offer is real just by looking at your account after login. As far as I can see there is no info inside my account page except previous e mail offer.

Joebart, I haven't seen a way from looking at your account online but I did get an email notice about the extension. When I accept these promos from PC I always get an email confirmation which I keep as a record until the bonus interest is paid into the account.

I called PC, they said since I was enrolled in the first offer from May to August, I was automatically enrolled in the extension from Sept to Oct and didn't have to sign up again.

The promotional interest earned up to Aug 31 will be paid in September, based on whichever of the 2% or 2.5% promotions you're on, and then paid again in November, based on the 2.5% total rate, for promo interest earned Sept 1 - Oct 31.

The promo interest earned until Aug 31 was deposited to my account yesterday, Sept 14.
