Unexpected surprise & perk from Continental Airlines
In past posts I’ve mentioned using affinity credit cards to earn free travel. My credit cards are tied into my airline frequent traveler accounts and I was pleasantly surprised when I checked in with Continental for my last flight.
As most air travelers are aware you pay a fee to check your luggage. I had my charge card out and was ready to pay the baggage fee but because I had a Continental Airlines credit card I was entitled to check one free bag in each direction.
Zero extra fees to Vegas and zero on the return no complaints here. All things being equal-the fare and schedule-because of this perk Continental has just jumped to my number 1 preferred carrier.
