I Love Aruba delta deceptive

delta runs ads saying if you have the gold amex skymiles card your first bag is free. we have that card, but when my wife flew mich to atlanta last week the charged $23/bag each way. when i call delta they said amex has to link to delta and i then called amex. they said only the "owner" of the card gets the free bag. since the account is in my name she is only an extra user and has to pay. sure don't say that in the ads. guess when we use up our ff miles it's the end of that card.

Sorry, I'm with Delta on this............. The benefit is for account holders. Since it's not a joint account, the piece of plastic with your wife's name on it doesn't qualify.

Going in a different direction, I hope your wife has established credit and isn't dependant exclusively on your credit worthiness.

There should not have been a bag charge on Delta since you were going out of the country. I flew to Aruba out of Atlanta last month using ff miles and there was no charge. Check out the bagage regs on their website.
