    Does anyone have recent data points on the delta gold amex cc waiving the fee for the first checked bag? I thought it was linked to the primary card holders FF# and you didn't need to purchase the tickets with the card. Upon closer review I'm seeing language where it says the purchase must be made with the card to waive the first checked bag.

    Anyone?

    Haven't heard anything. What is the language you're seeing?

    As a benefit of Card Membership, you can check your first bag free on Delta flights booked with your Card. You can save up to $50 on a round-trip Delta flight per person.1

    But when you look at the T&C directly it just says the card members FF number has to be on the reservation. So I guess it's not required to use the card but they're using all the language they can to make it appear that you do.

    The united card has had that restriction for a while but I've never heard of it being on the DL card. Hard to tell without a non-elite trying it out or finding an older version of the application.

    Well I'll let you know. In 3 weeks I'll be flying DL BE one way to YVR. I don't know yet if I'll have to check a bag but if I do we'll see what happens.
