If you’re planning on flying on United Airlines between now and March 29, the airline is offering to help you save a bit of cash on your checked luggage… if you ship it via FedEx.
The airline has temporarily cut the price of the door-to-door baggage delivery service it offers through FedEx to $25/bag for up to 9 bags.
United passengers are normally charged $25 for their first checked bag and $35 for their second. So, if you have four bags to check, you can save $30 with the FedEx deal.
However, the deal isn’t without its catches:
-Even though you can travel as late as March 29, the sale ends at 5pm ET on Friday.
-The $25 offer is only available on flights in the continenatl U.S.
-FedEx won’t pick up or deliver bags on weekends, so be sure you don’t pack anything necessary if you’re traveling on a Saturday.
If they were to make this a permanent price reduction, would it be of interest to you?
