Disclosing A Bonus Paid Considered Interest?

Question: 
Is the bank required to disclose that a bonus paid will be considered interest and be reported on a 1099-Misc? Should the information be disclosed in the advertisement of a bonus?
Answer: 

by Randy Carey:

If the bonus is considered interest under IRS rules, then it would be reported on a 1099-INT and not a 1099-MISC

Answer: 

by John Burnett:

It's not a requirement to include information about IRS reporting in your disclosures about a bonus. It is also not prohibited to include it.
