Hot? AmazonBasics Hardside 20 Inch Spinner Luggage - $46.87 (Light Blue ONLY)

Deal Link:
Was looking for a carry-on suitcase and this looks like a pretty good deal. $62.50 regular price - 25% AmazonBasics discount = $46.87 + HST.

CCC shows a low of $44.75 back in January for the light blue one I checked. So this is very close to that price. Don’t own one myself so can’t comment on quality.

IIRC this is barely over the carry on guidelines for AC/WS.

I own the small checked luggage sized one. Though wheels are sturdy and hardshell body feels nice, there is actually very little space inside. But at this price I would buy if I needed a new handcarry.

Was planning to buy a new luggage for a trip to Europe. Unfortunately this bag is a few cm too big for European carrier specs. Most of the ULCC are pretty tight with their cabin luggage sizes.

Can I join prime to get the deal and quit afterwards w/o paying annual fee? I remember I did it once a few years ago. Not sure whether I can do it again.

A little too much even for RFD.

Technically yes for WestJet, but almost microscopically so.

WS says 53 centimeters by 38 centimeters by 23 centimeters. (But WS also says 21” which is 53.34 cm.)

This is 54.9 cm x 36.6 x 23.4.

So this is less than 2 cm over in length and 4 millimeters over in depth.

Given the monstrously oversized bags I have seen WS permit inconsiderate passengers stuff into overhead bins depriving others access, I would be shocked if they squawked about 4 mm and less than 2 cm.

Two other factors to consider though. One is the exposure of the wheels. That might pose a breakage risk and reduces the interior dimension of a 20” suitcase. The other is the weight. At 3.5 kg (7.7 pounds) the suitcase itself would take up a lot of the maximum weight for carryones that some airlines have. I remember when I flew on Alaska Airline quite a bit the carryon weight limit was 10 kg, so this suitcase would leave only 6.5 kg for contents.

Join now and quit after Prime day sales.
I try to do it 2 years ago like a true RFDer, but still have Prime as I felt bad cancelling.

Good points. I've seen Air Canada refuced to let my friend bring a similar luggage because it couldn't for their metal cage by the gate. We had to make a scene to get that in.
Also last week at Toronto airport, they refused to let go checked luggage with 0.2KG extra weight. Airlines can cause trouble if they want for sure..

I fly a dozen AC flights and a few intra-Europe flights every year and I've never had issues with my 23.75in x 14.75in x 9.5in softsided case. YMMV, but I doubt you'll have a problem with this outside of low-cost carriers.

With that said, I think you should buy a softsided carry-on. Lighter/easier to fit in overhead bins/easier to pull stuff from in flight/etc.

I share your view about soft-sided. I use a weekender bag for my carry-on and a backpack for my “personal item”. I can “stuff” the weekender bag, so it always gets on as carry on.

Both are from Everlane. They aren’t inexpensive, but they are high quality and provide good value over time. Both are at least five years old. The backpack is my daily carry. Both travel to Mexico a couple of time each year. Both come with me on probably 30 work trips each year. Both look almost new.

I'm flying the Japanese LCC Peach later this year and looks like this fits within their carry-on luggage criteria (l + w + h cant exceed 115cm). Incase anyone else is wondering. The weight does account for 1/3 of their total carry on allowance but hey it's better than nothing :).
