Continental Airlines recently announced that beginning immediately the airline will waive fees for the first checked bag for Continental Airlines Chase credit and debit card members. So if you whip out your Continental Airlines Chase credit card, you can save the $15 each way.

Fee waivers are available for the primary credit or debit card members, along with any other customers traveling with him or her if they are listed in the same reservation and check in at the same time.
