The $100 fee is for five years.

TSA precheck is not guaranteed even if you have Global Entry, although we usually get it.

It took us about two weeks to be approved, and then we ran into a huge delay getting the interview scheduled. I kept checking online every day and was lucky enough to run across a cancellation. I booked that for my husband, called and got them to agree to take us both at the same time.

MJ who as many of you may know travels a lot. She has Global Entry and she went on a stretch that she did not get pre check about 4 of her 6 flights over about a month. She was not happy but not much you can do. Still nice to have and worth it, especially when you re enter the US.
Cheers,
T

When I travel to SXM during Thanksgiving I was "bumped" from TSA prechecked in Newark.

Have had it since the beginning and LOVE it. Great program. And you can use pre-check for domestic flights.

How do you get bumped from precheck?

Even if you're in the precheck line, you can still be randomly selected for traditional screening.

...and not all the pre-check barcode scanners will read your boarding pass correctly. I alwys print them in high quality but on our flight to SXM mine scanned fine with one agent but my wife was told to go to the regular check in line 'cuz her's didn't scan (different agent)....I had her move to my agent and it scanned fine...

Also...we have had GE for a couple of years and ALWAYS had precheck stamped on our boarding passes (except for airports that do not have it)

You've been lucky. One day you'll be among the random trusted travelers who don't get precheck. One trip I had it but David didn't, so I just took his laptop with me to make it easier for him.

My wife has GE too. Her last flight to Vegas did not have precheck but her return did. It happens.

Neither hubby nor I have GE, but the last 4 flights I've flown have had TSA pre-check printed on mine. Go figure! I'm not sure there's any rhyme or reason to it.
