The Great Co-Brand Debate: Can co-brand cards SAVE loyalty programs from  becoming less important to frequent flyers?

Feedback that we’ve received is that point and counterpoint and debate offer something different than most webinars. Join this debate on whether co-brand cards will save loyalty programs from becoming less important to frequent flyers, or not. We have two debaters with extensive loyalty and co-brand experience constructively arguing the issue, and the audience will decide the winning side.
