Five Star. This webinar was very informative. I was not known to the ways we can save the surcharges on our credit card. It was fantastic. Along with that the initiative of 1 Credit = 1 meal taken by myCPE is highly commendable.

I was expecting from the description as well as the learning objections to hear more about the surcharging rules. The webinar was more of a sales pitch, and talked about another available webinar which would have the information I was interested in. Classic bait and switch.
