I believe you are mistaken, "languagepolice", this idiom does exist:

http://www.ldoceonline.com/dictionary/interest_1
be in somebody's (best) interest(s) (to do something) (=be the best thing for someone)
"The court decided that it was in the girl's best interests to remain with her grandparents."

http://www.oxforddictionaries.c...glish/interest
3. The advantage or benefit of a person or group:
"it is in your interest to keep your insurance details to hand"

Also note the many Google hits from sites written by native speakers, e.g.:
http://www.trinitycollege.com/site/?id=201 ("Therefore when you are choosing a course which aims to prepare and qualify you for your first English teaching job, it is in your interest to choose a course which will offer you a high standard of training and a recognised certification.")
http://www.lewisham.gov.uk/myse...umstances.aspx ("It is in your interest to report all changes that could affect your benefit immediately the change occurs.")
http://www.chicken.org.au/files...NAL%5B3%5D.pdf ("It is in your best interest to ensure that all potential risks
are identified and managed.")

So, I see no problem with this idiom.
