Airline Treachery

The masterminds at United  (aka United Breaks Guitars) are now marketing a MileagePlus Explorer Card. I'm annoyed for a couple of reasons.

Firstly, they know I live in Canada so I'm surprised they'd be sending me an offer that is nearly impossible for me to take advantage of.

Secondly, one of its great "features"  is a free checked bag if you pay for your flight with the card. Since free checked baggage was standard with most airline flights until a few years ago, I'm having a hard time getting excited. Thanks for nothing United.
