    Yep, Jamaica is international.
    Here's what the American Airlines website says:
    Customers traveling on an international itinerary to destinations beyond the U.S., the U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, or Canada will not be charged a service fee to check a second bag.

      Here's United's policy:
      The following customers will not be charged a service fee to check a second bag: Customers whose itinerary includes a city outside the U.S., Canada, Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands (either as the origin or destination).

        Thanks for that! I (and my fellow BP members) WILL be checking those extra bags...

          It looks like Northwest isn't as kind and considers anywhere in the caribbean as domestic flying: Domestic Travel (within the U.S./Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean) Coach Class for tickets issued on/after March 29, 2008 for travel on/after May 5, 2008: Each ticketed passenger is allowed one (1) piece of checked luggage.

            Here's Delta's policy: Currently, you can check two bags per passenger free of charge. Starting May 5, 2008 this will be reduced to one free bag per passenger traveling in the U. S., the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico.

            Looks like Jamaica is in the clear on this airline, too. Before you book, just be sure and check specifically with your airline regarding their policy.

              Your stuff looks great! But that's exactly why I don't think I'm doing OOT bags. I know that I would not be able to stop myself. And since I would have to make about 40 of those babies, it would be insane! I think I'm going to buy beach towels at the StrawMarket when I get down there and give everyone a "Welcome Roll" instead. A Towel, a lipbalm, postcards which I can buy locally and the welcome letter and itinerary for the weekend.....call it a day! It's useful to my guests, I'm stimulating the local economy, and I don't have to haul all the crap down for them! It's a win/win situation! I'm figuring roughly around $6.00 - $8.00 a person.

                All the stuff you are putting in there look great! I foudn myself doing the same thing, I feel like my bags are waaaaay overstuffed.

                The funny thing is I keep shopping for more things anyway!

                I feel like i need to be saved from myself..lol

                    Okay, done... (for the most part) I HAD to buy my BMs nail polish remover (!!) and I picked up 48 'bubble wands' at the area discount store, for $2.99!!! Definately THE best buy yet!

                    But that's it! I am done now!!!
