Platinum – the most valuable of metals. So it stands to reason, if your bank offers you a Platinum account you are a cut above the crowd, important, preferred above the ordinary account holder.

The plain fact is, you’ve been paying for a range of extras that you may or may not have wanted or needed. Maybe you have a mobile phone with a tariff that includes insurance. If that’s the case you certainly didn’t want to pay for a second insurance policy on your bank account, so it’s likely the account was mis-sold to you. But it isn’t just about mobile phones: there are many reasons why a PBA may not have been suitable.
