    I just signed up and received the Continental OnePass card. I also have redeemed miles for 3 coach award tickets. I have no status.

    I am trying to figure out how I would get "free bags" when I check in for my flight on these award miles. I didn't "purchase" the tickets so I am not sure I can even qualify for free baggage just by being a card holder.

    I emailed Chase and asked them when I checked in do I swipe my card and get charged $25 per bag....then receive $25 credit per bag? Instead of answering the question they sent me to "Continental Bagge Resolution". Ugh.

    Anyone know if I can get the free bags when flying on an award ticket as a cardholder? Or did I need to purchase the ticket to qualify for that benefit on my card? Thanks!
