If you’re flying the United States, Canada, Mexico, or the Caribbean you’ll save on checked bag fees on United Airlines. Now you can bring two checked bags for free.

United Airlines is eliminating checked bag fees on the second checked bag on Hong Kong flights. Passengers flying to/from Hong Kong from North America can check two bags for free. You’ll still pay fees for oversized or overweight bags.

In celebration of free second checked bags and the “Year of the Dog” United is offering special fares to China and Hong Kong. Rates are valid from January 9, 2018, to February 16, 2018, and April 2, 2018, through June 10, 2018.

Fares are as low as $492 round-trip. You can book on http://united.com/China and http://united.com/HongKong. These rates are also available through online travel agencies like Expedia.

With free second checked bags and inexpensive round-trip prices, now’s a good time to visit China. Are you going to book a flight?

Chase Sapphire Preferred

The Chase Sapphire Preferred is the best card for beginning travel hackers. It is the first card you should get to start traveling for free because the welcome offer is 60,000 points after spending $4,000 in the first three months.
 
My favorite perks about this card are earning 5X points on travel when booked through the Chase portal (2X if direct purchase), 3X points on dining , $50 yearly credit on hotels booked through the Chase portal, no foreign transaction fees, and transferring points to 13 airline and hotel partners like Hyatt, United, and Southwest.
 


Chase Freedom Unlimited

The Chase Freedom Unlimited is one of my favorite cards for earning cash back card and travel rewards. It offers a welcome offer of $200 after spending $500 in the first three months.
 
My favorite perks about this card are earning 5% cash back at grocery stores the first 12 months (up to $12k), unlimited 1.5% cash back on all purchases and no annual fee. When paired with cards like the Chase Sapphire Reserve, you can use your points to travel for free.
