Regular savings account interest is 0.25% and promotion interest is 3%. If my account balance is $0 before promotion started, the ratio of interests earned from regular and promotion should be 0.25%:2.75, which is 1:11. However, interests posted in my account gives the ratio 1:9.5.

Since the regular interest rate has been reduced to 0.25% during the period, the bonus rate has risen (to 2.75% in your case). It makes sense that the ratio is less than 1:1.11 for you. I opened a new account in April and so it was simple to confirm that I received the correct interest amounts.

Thanks. You are right. I forgot there was a rate change in April.
