If you are anything like me then you hate all of the recently imposed baggage fees on many of the major airlines.
Personally, I love flying Southwest (who has no baggage fees) and try to fly Southwest if at all possible but I did come across one pretty nifty perk lately in the way of avoiding airline baggage fees at Delta (who is rumored to be in merger talks with Continental so it could very well be that you can avoid both Delta and Continental baggage fees in the future).
The American Express Delta credit card recently announced that beginning June 1, 2010 cardholders will be able to check one bag free on all Delta flights. This extends to up to 9 people on the same reservation so if you have a large family or even if you fly Delta frequently then the Delta credit card, although it has an annual fee, may end up well worth your while.
The standard Delta baggage fee is $25 so at a savings of $50 for every round trip Delta flight the savings could be quite useful to some. Or, you could just fly Southwest
