Here is the latest service enhancement (or maybe we should call it revenue enhancement)… I just can’t imagine paying this price for shipping.
Stop lugging your luggage around. Instead, send it ahead with Door-to-Door Baggage. Purchase this service at united.com and FedEx Express will pick up your baggage from your home or office and ship it directly to your destination.
Or if you prefer, you can drop off your baggage at a FedEx Office location or any other FedEx authorized shipping center. (FedEx Kinko’s is now FedEx Office.)
United is the first airline to save you time and money with this simple and convenient service.
Next-day delivery of your baggage
Convenient online tracking
Available in the 48 contiguous U.S.
Starting at 149.00 USD
Did you catch the: Starting at $149 per bag
My shipping experience is not as extensive as some of yours, I’m sure, but this is a money maker for United and Fed Ex for sure.
