Checked Baggage Fees at Alaska

I just looked at my Alaska card (Visa) and all it says is "Alaska" with the words "Milage Plan" underneath it. WE always get a one checked bag free (per person) when traveling to see my kids in Denver, but travel to Mexico with just a couple of carry ons. So I know we'd get one free checked bag going down but I cannot confirm that we'd get one checked bag coming home.

We're just chopped liver for Alaska Airlines up here in Canada. The only platinum in my Alaska "Platinum Plus" Mastercard is the 75 bucks they charge me annually. When I joined, their come-on promised 25,000 sign-on bonus points: "Enough to fly return to anywhere in Canada or the continental United States served by Alaska or our partners." So, I looked into flying to Boston....50,000 points. Maybe if I'd booked 2 or 3 years in advance.....?

I must be the luckiest gringo in Zihua (sorry, Rob!) because I have flown Alaska Air from LAX direct for as low as $108!
Now I can even reclaim the tourist tax which can bring it down to $75
