Multiple Delta Amex Cards and Checked Bags

So, if I have a Delta Gold Amex and  Delta Reserve.  Each card gives you a free checked bag.  So does that mean that I get 2 free checked bags when I fly?  I have an annoying suspicion that the answer is no but I can't seem to find a definite answer online.

Re: Multiple Delta Amex Cards and Checked Bags

I’m just assuming to be honest but, I’m sure it depends on which card you purchase the ticket with and your status with the airline and class of ticket you purchased. Hopefully someone else chimes in.

You don't need to purchase with the card. You typically can't combine that benefit.

Re: Multiple Delta Amex Cards and Checked Bags

The benefit is phrased as "first checked bag free", and the fine print says:

 

"Waiver is only for normal bag fee, if any, for the first checked bag that is not overweight and not oversize under Delta’s applicable rules as set forth in Delta’s contract of carriage. Additional checked bags will be subject to the applicable baggage fees as outlined by Delta’s rules and the purchased fare as set forth in Delta’s contract of carriage."

 

Maybe you have a companion who could carry some things? Up to 9 people (you and 8 others) get a free checked bag in your reservation.

Personal spend: Amex Gold, Amex Schwab Plat., BofA PR+CCR, Costco
Business use: Amex Bus. Plat., BBP, Lowes Amex AU, CFU AU
Perks: Delta Plat., IHG49, Hyatt, "Old SPG"
Mostly SD: Freedom Flex, Freedom, Arrival
Upgrade/Downgrade games: EDP, BCP
Closing soon: Discover

Mostly earning MRs and cash back as I use up hotel and airline points spread across several programs.

This makes sense.  Thank you!
