The overnight delivery service is provided through FedEx.

Customers who have booked travel between March 18 and March 29 within the continental U.S. on at least one United-operated or United-marketed flight are eligible.

Checking luggage normally during the same period will cost $20 to $25 for the first item and $30 to $35 for the second, depending when travel was booked.

The door-to-door deal is available until 5 p.m. Eastern time March 19 or supplies run out, United said in a statement Wednesday.

Travelers may purchase the door-to-door baggage option up to 10 days before departure.
