No interest given for savings accounts??

I remembered last time every 6 months, the bank will calculate interest and deposit into our saving accounts regardless how much money we have in our account. But now? Seems like it's not any more. Yesterday I went to open a saving account at Public Bank. When I read through the information on that saving account, I realized there's really such rule, there's no interest at all for if your account got less than this amount of money.

Hmm, why we open account then? Bank in our money and let them use freely? No wonder now most of the ppl don't save money lar.. oh ya, blame the bank!! Is every bank like this? So far I've encountered this with Hong Leong, CIMB and Public Bank.

no interest is alright. lucky they did ask interest from you. in japan, you need to give the back interest for keeping your money in their bank.

Do you know that now current account need to put at least 5k then only got interest? If below 5k them the bank will deduct RM5 from your account automatically. I am not sure other bank but RHB bank is like that.
