If it's the United card, it also gives free checked first bag for you and companion if tickets bought on the card. This is much cheaper than paying for any of their "baggage fee subscription plans".

More than one trip with 2 people checked baggage each way, and you are ahead. Actually - you are ahead with one annual trip by a few bucks.

And you get premium boarding - just after first class. That's nice too.

Just some things to consider.

Well, I thought I was retired. But it seems that now I'm working as a travel agent instead!

This is not directly connected to the above discussion, but it does reference credit card rewards and a potential problem to be aware of.

I used a Discover Card last month to make a number of online purchases. Discover was offering a 5% cashback bonus for online purchases. The purchases I made from well known online companies like Amazon got the bonus. But, my biggest purchase by far was from a company whose products are usually sold at specialty stores and big box stores. Discover completely missed that and did not give me the bonus (over $50). One call to Discover and they quickly fixed the problem. Just a word to the wise.

The worst decisions are usually made in times of anger and impatience.
