    I've booked some award travel in the last few weeks. Just got my explorercard in the mail yesterday. I assume I can't get that free baggage because I didn't book them with the card? What if I bring the card with me to the counter when I check in... would I get the free bag allowance then?

    Kinda figured. This always happens to me. Happened when I first got my two AA cards too! Some day this will actually benefit my airline travel :D

    Please do let us know if this works! Assume that you're flying out of IAD on the "friendly skies"?

    Pay for the baggage fees with the Explorer card (if required) then appeal the charge with Chase.
