September 30 Update: U.S. airlines collected over $1.5 Billion in checked bag fees last quarter - here's how you can avoid some of those dreaded fees!



Airline fees are ones that all travelers hate - doesn't matter if you are once every two years flyer or once every day flyer it seems that there can be a fee for anyone. From checked bags to seat selection and more, airlines now seem to charge for almost everything. The latest report that came out this month is that U.S. airlines netted over $1.5 Billion dollars in checked bag fees alone in the last quarter! (Source Forbes.com) The good news there are ways you can save on airline fees without being a top tier elite member in an airline's frequent flyer program and that is with select credit cards in our market. We cover all of those in our special feature entitled "Credit cards that help you avoid those dreaded airline fees". In this feature we have cards that save you on checked bag fees, seat selections fees and more. We also look at how you can use points from select cards to help offset fees that are charged.


Just a reminder that you can earn 10,000 PC Optimum points when you sign up for text alerts from Shoppers Drug Mart and spend $40 or more at SDM. There is no published end date for this offer but I would do it sooner than later (as long as you know you'll be spending $40 at SDM) as the offer can be pulled at anytime. Find out more here.
