Basic Cardmembers with a Gold, Platinum, or Reserve Delta SkyMiles Credit Card from American Express may check their first bag for free on all Delta and Delta Connection® flights. That’s a savings of up to $50 per person on a round-trip ticket or up to $200 for a family of four.1
How does First Checked Bag Free work?
BusinessElite®, First and Business Class passengers, SkyMiles Medallion® members, and passengers with a confirmed Full Y Economy Class ticket may check up to two bags that comply with our size and weight restrictions at no charge.
Please note that additional checked bags, as well as oversized and overweight baggage charges may apply.
1. Benefit is limited to Basic Cardmembers (not Additional Cardmembers) with the Gold, Platinum or Reserve Delta SkyMiles Credit Cards. Reservation must include the Basic Cardmember’s SkyMiles number. Fee waiver also available for passengers traveling in the same reservation as the Basic Cardmember. Maximum nine waivers per reservation. New Cardmembers and Cardmembers upgrading from another Delta SkyMiles Credit Card product will be eligible for the checked baggage fee waiver benefit after receiving their Card from American Express. The first checked bag fee waiver will only be applied on flight segments which originate on a Delta or Delta Connection® carrier when you check-in with Delta for both a Delta marketed and Delta operated flight. Waiver is only for normal bag fee, if any, for the first checked bag that is not overweight and not oversize under Delta’s applicable rules as set forth in Delta’s contract of carriage. Additional terms, conditions and restrictions may apply. See delta.com/firstbagfree for details.
