Save money on our favorite business luggage options
By Aimee Heckel
Airfare is for business travelers.
In fact, the U.S. Travel Association reported in 2012, about one-third of domestic business trips were on airplanes, compared with only 11 percent of vacations. About eight in 10 vacations traveled instead by car.
If you’re traveling for business, your luggage needs will be vastly different than packing for a family vacation on the beach.
Here are our favorite business luggage options — and how to save money on them, too.
1. The Samsonite Silhouette Sphere Spinner Luggage
Why we love it: No crazy wheels. This bag features “spinner mobility,” which is fancy for easy-to-pull-through-the-airport. This lightweight, carry-on bag is durable, water-resistant and it comes in four (professional) colors. Inside, there are plenty of pockets and even a removable suit storage bag.
Where to get it: $460 at Macys.com.

2. The Travelon Wheeled Underseat Carry-On.
Why we love it: It’s sexy, yet classy. We love the shiny black quilted PVC material. Plus it’s practical, designed to fit under the seat in front of you (and act as a comfy foot rest, when not in use). Comes with a matching tote, which you can use for your gum, eye drops or must-haves on the plane.
Where to get it: $71.85 at Staples.com.

3. The Travelers Club 18-inch Quilted Rolling Tote.
Why we love it: This fashionable, lime green (or blue) tote with a special laptop compartment looks more like a bag than a suitcase. It’s sleek, not boxy. It’s made out of quilted microfiber, so it’s soft, and it comes with a three-year warranty.
Where to get it: $53.82 at Overstock.com.
