Checked baggage fees are typically $25 or $30 per checked bag, which could add up to hundreds of dollars for a family on a round-trip flight. But according to Business Insider, there are a few slick ways of getting out of paying these annoying charges. For example, one obvious solution is to fly with an airline that doesn't charge for bags at all, like the insanely popular Southwest Airlines. Another way is to get an airline credit card that offers a free baggage allowance, like the Citi/AAdvantage Platinum Select World Elite Mastercard , or the Gold Delta SkyMiles Credit Card from American Express. Finally, just skip suitcases altogether by packing everything you need in a standard carry-on-size bag. Check your airline's weight and size limits for carry-on luggage, then pack strategically to make sure all your items will fit. Happy travels!
