Booking with Credit Card gets Baggage Fee Waived

  By Steven Gibbs May 11, 2010


If you are traveling this summer and you are looking to make air your primary travel method it looks like you may be able to save a little bit of money. When it comes to the saving, while it is not exactly on the price of the ticket it is on something that almost everyone will take with them; which is luggage. The discount in which flyers receive a free first checked bag involves Delta Airlines and is exclusively for their credit cardholders.


As for when cardholders can look to start seeing the discount, the promotion is scheduled to launch on the first of June. To be eligible you must purchases tickets using a qualifying credit card which include both consumers and small businesses with Gold, Platinum and Reserve Delta SkyMiles credit cards. When it comes to how much cardholders can truly save Delta lets it be known that this discount can be used on multiple passengers as long as they are on the same ticket. The discount received can apply to up to nine travelers which could save them more than $300 if they were flying round trip.


So is Delta looking to set a trend that is seen many times within the airline industry? Not exactly as the model for waiving fees for cardholders as it has been done before by one it its competitors. When it comes to who was first Continental airlines provided the same "perk" to its cardholders last year, and untimely it was received well by those who use Continental as their primary airline.
