Starting June 1, those with Gold Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express can check their first bag for free on all Delta flights. This applies to the cardmember and up to nine (!!!) people traveling on the same reservation.
Smart move, of course. At the end of the day the credit card companies are running the airline, and this is a valuable benefit.
