SunTrust debit card - baggage fees?

If I get the SkyMiles SunTrust Platinum Debit card, would I be exempt from the baggage fees? Just like CO's debit card holders are exempt from baggage fees. I didn't see anything about this on DL's site.

that's not a listed benefit, so I'm taking a wild guess and say no.

CO is the only airline I know of that has bag fee waivers for debit card users.

I know when I was not elite on US Airways, I would have still had to pay bag fees if I were to check bags (I have a US Airways BoA debit card).

I'll go w/ negative, although the linking between Suntrust/DL is better than BoA/US, already had my 5k initial bonus post plus a random 964 miles. BoA took me about 2 months to get them to understand I had an existing US acct that I wanted to link to it, not create a new one.

having a relationship with SunTrust brings about its own baggage, but that is another story....
