Want To Check Your Bag Free?

Who doesn’t want to save money when they travel? Paying to check your bags can and does add up, not to mention the mental aggravation knowing that the airlines has “stuck it to you ”  because they think they have you over a barrel. The good news is that you do have some options. High five for sticking it back to the airlines. Below are options for 3 major airlines, see “Source” at the end of the article for 3 more.

 

1. Southwest

We can’t say it enough — FLY SOUTHWEST if you have a lot of baggage. Southwest’s luggage slogan is “Bags fly free,” and they really mean it: all first and second checked bags are free, including golf bags and skis. Just make sure bags are theright size and at the required weight limit.

2. JetBlue

At JetBlue, you can check your first bag for free — just make sure it’s the right size, weight and not a box on international flights. Sounds easy enough.

3. Delta Air Lines

Typically, traveling from the United States or Canada to the Caribbean or Central America means you’ll spend about $25 on your first checked bag. If you really want to get out of that $25, Basic Card Members with a Gold, Platinum or Reserve Delta SkyMiles Credit Card from American Express can waive their first checked bag fee on all Delta flights. The best part? It applies to EVERYONE in your reservation (up to nine people).

But if you’re flying to South America, Europe, North Africa, the Middle East, China or Japan, the first checked bag is generally free already.
