Lots of folks still buzzing about that amazing Amex Plat 100k offer last month. And I can’t blame them!
One of the benefits of the card is you get a statement credit for the application fee on Gobal Entry or TSA Pre. The general recommendation is that you go for Global Entry, because it comes with TSA Pre.
It’s not advertised, but you actually get a refund on BOTH applications.
This is a tried and true data point that has been tested many times by users. Since the time to get an appointment for Global Entry can be up to multiple months, you can actually apply for TSA Pre in the meantime, to enjoy the benefit while you wait to get your Global Entry status cleared, and get refunded on both applications.
Happy travel hacking!
