Welcome back to ZorkCast, the podcast that is all about helping you travel smarter, gamble smarter, and maximize your adventures. What started out as a two-part episode has turned into three parts.

Today is part ll and I’m going to continue telling you all about finding loyalty sweet spots and using them to your advantage.
