Balanzza Intros Mini Luggage Scale to Help Avoid Added Luggage Fees

Airline luggage fees have been on my mind this week ever since I spoke to Scott Jordan about his dealing’s with Delta Sky magazine. (Heck, Scott even announced a new product, the Carry-On Coat to take things to the next level.) The fees for bags and extra weight keep growing and the free allotments keep diminishing. In a travel environment like this it is more important than ever to make sure your luggage doesn’t go over the weight limit. A new product makes it easier than ever.

The Balanzza Mini, the lightest digital scale in the market, weighs less than one-third of a pound, features a large LCD and helps consumers avoid costly overweight baggage fees. The scale

…helps travelers avoid unexpected overweight charges at the airline ticket counter as well as the inconvenience and embarrassment or having to repack on the airport floor. The patented design makes it easy to use; simply secure the scale to the luggage handle by using the strap, lift with one or two hands, wait for the beep, and check the weight in pounds or kilograms.

“Balanzza is excited to bring another solution for every traveler’s struggles with luggage weight and fees,” stated Ronald Kritzler, president of Balanzza. “Time and money are common worries when we travel, and the Mini provides convenient peace of mind.”

The Balanzza Mini is available directly on www.balanzza.com, in select Bed Bath & Beyond stores and in specialty stores nationwide for $24.95. For a complete list of stores, visit www.balanzza.com/distributors/
