Keep Your Weight Under the Limit and Save Money

May 7, 2014

Camry Luggage ScaleI have spent many days of my career in airports. Flying is truly work these days and I don’t think anyone (other than the airlines) appreciates all the fees associated with flying. Given that US airlines raked in $3.35 billion from baggage fees in 2013, I’m sure they love the fees.

At one point the weight limit for bags was 70 pounds and you could check two bags for free. Now the limit is 50 pounds and most airlines charge you for every bag you check. These limits even different in other parts of the world.

I do my best to pack light, but there are times when I know I am near the 50 pound limit. How many times have you climbed on a scale with and without your bag before a trip? What do you do when you are on the road?

That’s where the Camry 110 Pounds Luggage Scale comes in handy. It costs less than $12 and weighs just 3.2 ounces. That means you can easily pack it in your carry-on bag wherever you travel. If you are concerned about the cost, how much extra will you pay if even a single bag goes over the weight limit? That first overweight bag will cost a lot more than the scale. Get one for your travel bag and you can win the battle of the bulge against the airlines.
