Delta recently added a cool new feature to it's Fly Delta app - bag tracking. Now, you can enter your bag number (from the sticker they put on your boarding pass whenever you check a bag) and the app will let you know where it is.

I haven't actually used this functionality yet because I rarely check bags, but I think this is a step in the right direction. I've never actually lost a checked bag (now I've officially jinxed myself), but I have had some close misses and waiting in long baggage lines to check on the status is the last thing I want to do when I'm angry about a potentially lost bag.

How we chose these cards

Our points-obsessed staff uses a plethora of credit cards on a daily basis. If anyone on our team wouldn’t recommend it to a friend or a family member, we wouldn’t recommend it on The Points Guy either. Our opinions are our own, and have not been reviewed, approved, or endorsed by our advertising partners.
