Great Podcast

I love that they feature different cards and points and how to use them for specific trips. Very helpful and interesting.

My go to travel podcast

Great, timely information ... Ed is a great host, who explains all the ways to make travel more fun by saving a few bucks along the way.

A. Rodney ,

Top Notch

Ed puts on a dynamite show each week. I love how he covers a wide variety of topics in a relatively short time. He doesn’t dwell on a topic longer than needed to get the point across, which I appreciate. His new travails with RV camping are a fun sojourn from the standard points-and-miles topics. Keep up the good work Ed!
