Continental Airlines is waiving its fees for the first checked bag for Continental Airlines Chase credit and debit card members.

Primary credit and debit cardmembers will be eligible to check their first bag without paying a fee a savings of $15 each way per passenger checking bags. Continental Airlines Presidential Plus cardmembers are eligible to check up to two bags without paying a fee a savings of up to $40 each way per passenger checking bags. Customers traveling with the primary cardmember will also be eligible for the waived fees if they are listed in the same reservation and check in at the same time.

We worked closely with Chase to improve the value of our family of co-branded credit and debit cards, said Mark Bergsrud, Continentals senior vice president marketing programs and distribution. Waiving the first checked baggage fee offers a significant benefit to the more than one million customers who carry a Continental Airlines Chase credit or debit card.

Checked bags must meet weight and size restrictions. These fee waivers will apply to all Continental Airlines, Continental Express and Continental Connection flights.
