Irritated by those new $25 baggage check fees?

Yesterday, May 5th, United, Continental, Delta, Northwest and US Airways began charging non-exempt passengers $25 for checking a second bag. Soon it will also cost extra to check a second bag on American Airlines, Alaska Airlines, Horizon Air, Air Tran, and JetBlue.

Want that money back?

The Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants Group has announced a “We Got Your Bag” promotion. Stay at one of the company’s 43 hotels in the U.S. and Canada between May 22 and Sept 9; show proof of having paid an extra baggage charge; and get a room credit of up to $25.
