We’re not quite done reviewing over the recent changes United has made to their Premier 1k program. This week United Airlines expert Zach Honig from The Points Guy is back on the show to review over the increase of their Premier Qualifying Dollars requirement and devaluation of their upgrades. Jen Yellin from Deals We Like fills us in on the latest news from National Car Rental – complimentary status for everyone – no need to have top status with any other competitor! Be sure to tune in so you don’t miss out on this easy (and free) deal! We’ve also got a new type of segment this week: Ed chats with friend and author Linnea Hartsuyker on how travel influences and inspires storytelling. At the end of the interview, find out how to win a signed copy of her newest book, The Sea Queen!
