This final note today from Forbes magazine and our occassional guest Micheline Maynard.

You wanna be done with paying for and hassling over checked bag fees? United Airlines has just the thing for you.

You can now buy a subscription to check your bags. Just pay $349 a year, which will get you one standard-sized checked bag per flight domestically.

Saving you the math, that’s just about the same price as checking 13 bags a la carte, if you will.
