FREE First Checked Bag on Delta for Delta SkyMiles Credit Cardmembers STARTS 6/1/2010

First Bag is FREE With the Delta SkyMiles Credit Card from American Express (starting June 1, 2010)

Just in time for the peak summer travel season, American Express and Delta Air Lines today announced the launch of a new benefit for U.S. Consumer and Small Business Gold, Platinum and Reserve Delta SkyMiles Credit Cardmembers. Starting June 1, 2010, Delta SkyMiles Credit Cardmembers will receive a free checked bag on every Delta flight – up to a $50 savings per person on a round-trip ticket – available for up to nine people in the same reservation.

The new Card benefit applies to up to nine people traveling in the same reservation including the Cardmember. As a result, a family of four could save up to $200 when flying round-trip. Cardmembers receive a first checked bag fee waiver upon check-in.

First and Business Class passengers, SkyMiles Medallion members, and passengers with a confirmed Full Y Class Economy ticket may continue to check up to two bags at no charge.
