Recently we announced that TSA will significantly reduce the number of travelers randomly selected for expedited security screening at the airport, even if you've previously opted-in for TSA Pre✓™ through a frequent flyer program. Of course, the number one way to increase your chance of selection is to apply for a Trusted Traveler Number from one of the Department of Homeland Security's Trusted Traveler Programs here, but we had to pass along this great tip:
Did you know you'll receive one TSA Pre✓™ statement credit ($85) every five years for an application fee charged to an eligible American Express Card?
The credit is available to American Express Gold Corporate Card Members, Consumer Platinum Card® Members, Corporate Platinum Card Members, and Business Platinum Card Members.
A $100 credit is also applicable to the Global Entry application fee.*
Not sure which of the two programs is right for you? Compare here or below- and don't forget to pay with an eligible American Express Card!
Once you have your Trusted Traveler Number, be sure to update your frequent flyer profiles... and all will be right in the world again.
