So what's the point in pre paying for your bag if you only save $2? I doubt they're planing on the additional bonus point to convince people to buy the blue plus fare.

Paying $3-6 more actually, first bag still $20 at kiosk.

Are you saying this is inaccurate?

Interesting.
Did they eliminate the online/kiosk $20 rate?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

When they came out with the bag fee it was $15 if BluePlus, $20 check-in online, $25 at the airport. Looks like on their website they removed all reference to $15/$20 option
