$9 scale makes weighing luggage easy
March 24, 2016 - Uncategorized
A Southwest Airlines passenger is allowed to check two pieces of luggage weighing up to 50lbs each for free. It’s a generous allowance. But if one bag weighs 55 lbs and the other weighs 45 lbs, you’ll get charged $75 for the heavier bag.
Other airlines have similar pricing arrangement. I bought this illuminated $7 luggage scale last year to weigh checked and carry-on luggage and it’s really easy to use — much easier than standing on a bathroom scale while holding the luggage and subtracting my weight. You just loop the strap around the luggage handle and lift it. You can switch between pounds and kilograms, too.
