for the "Free first checked bag Ė save up to $120 per roundtrip" benefit, would it work if I use a voucher for most and put abit on this card, of I split the payment with another card (would they even do that on phone?

Is there any benefit to have this card if I book through chase or amex mr? Or if flying United and booking with Avianca miles?

My wife got approved for the card, I did not.  If I get an employee card and I'm flying without my wife can I still get free bag/priority bording?  At the airport how do they know who is the primary card holder?

Called Recon?
They may manually waive the bag fee, but YMMV. Won't happen automatically.

I made a few mistakes lately and my credit score dropped so I knew I wasn't gonna get approved.  I'll fix my score and apply again on or around 3/18.  I'm flying in July so I have time, just wondering at this point.

Any chance of booking someone else (not the primary cardmember) and them having free checked baggage?
