Took me longer to find my car in the parking lot than to go through the interview. An added bonus is that I can go through the Nexus line coming back from Canada now!

...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)




I'm not sure I'm following what others are posting, but we share the same experience as you. So long as the airport has tsa precheck and we do our part by entering our passid when booking the reservation, we always have tsa precheck stamped on our boarding pass.

to the OP, global entry is worth every penny if you travel abroad and want the convenience of easy return home. tsa precheck is another amazing perk that eases the hassle of travel and long lines. when we did our application, we were not aware that amex will waive the application fee. so if you have amex platinum, you may want to look into this.

When we received our Global Entry, we were told that TSA Precheck was not guaranteed, and that random trusted travelers would be screened in the normal lines for security reasons. We've only experienced that once, but it does happen.

One more question. I've scheduled our interviews. Assuming we pass that test, how long after that until we are "in"? Our interviews are scheduled for 3/10 and we are leaving for Mexico on 3/25. Would we expect to have use of GE by then?

Mine was mailed to me after the interview, I would say it came within 5 days, quicker than I thought it would, I recall. Others leave the interview with the card in hand. I would certainly ask, once they tell you that you qualify, if you get to take the card with you that day.

Our passports were stamped and updated online immediately, while we were at the interview. The cards, which are not used for air travel, arrived a week or so later.

Pre check usually will not be applied to existing reservations.

Cheers, Todd

Good point, Todd. Your trusted traveler number needs to be on your airline profile at the time your reservation is made for precheck to apply.

I put ours in our profile after my reservations were made the same day I was approved at the interview. I then checked in to fly out same day and had precheck. Same for my wife. Our interview was six hour prior to departure to SXM. Worked just fine.
