    - don't need more than 500 overdraft as am very careful
    -want the highest possible interest rate
    -in london, so don't need a railcard as get a student oyster
    -shop somtimes quite a bit so freebies and discounts are useful but some banks only offer discounts at only a few places which is not that amazing

    You can get discounts by using the unidays app or just by using your uni ID.
