The benefit is available to U.S. Bank FlexPerks® Gold American Express® Cardmembers. Cardmembers are eligible to receive a statement credit every 4.5 years for the application fee for TSA PreCheck® and every 4 years for Global Entry when charged to an eligible Card. Card Members will receive a statement credit for the first program (either Global Entry or TSA PreCheck) to which they apply and pay for with their eligible Card regardless of whether they are approved for Global Entry or TSA PreCheck. However, Card Members can receive no more than one credit for up to $85 for TSA PreCheck or $100 credit for Global Entry (but not both programs), depending upon the program the Card Member first applies for, for an application fee charged to an eligible Card. American Express has no control over the application and/or approval process for Global Entry or TSA PreCheck, and does not have access to any information provided to the government by the Card Member or by the government to the Card Member. American Express has no liability regarding the Global Entry or TSA PreCheck Programs. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) (for Global Entry) and U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) (for TSA PreCheck) charge an application fee to process each respective application regardless of whether the Card Member’s application is approved. The Department of Homeland Security may suspend acceptance of applications on any basis at its discretion. American Express will provide a statement credit for the application fee regardless of the decision made by CBP (for Global Entry) or TSA (for TSA PreCheck) but will not provide a statement credit for subsequent application fees charged to the same eligible Card within 4 years (for Global Entry) or 4.5 years (for TSA PreCheck), even if the original application is rejected.
Membership for Global Entry or TSA PreCheck is per person, and a separate application must be completed for each individual.
For additional information on the Global Entry or TSA PreCheck programs, including information regarding the application and/or approval process and for a list of participating airlines and airports, as well as the full terms and conditions of the programs, please go to www.cbp.gov/travel/trusted-traveler-programs/global-entry
for Global Entry and www.tsa.gov for TSA PreCheck. The Global Entry or TSA PreCheck programs are subject to change, and American Express has no control over those changes.
The statement credit benefit applies to the Global Entry or TSA PreCheck programs only. Other program applications including, but not limited to, NEXUS, SENTRI, and Privium are not eligible for the statement credit benefit.
Please allow up to 8 weeks after the qualifying Global Entry or TSA PreCheck transaction is charged to the eligible Card account for the statement credit to be posted to the Card account. American Express relies on accurate transaction data to identify eligible Global Entry and TSA PreCheck purchases. If you do not see a credit for a qualifying purchase on your eligible Card after 8 weeks, simply call the number on the back of your Card. Card Members are responsible for payment of all application charges until the statement credit posts to the Card account. To be eligible for this benefit, Card account(s) must be active through the time of statement credit fulfilment.
Global Entry Fee Credit Option:
Global Entry is a CBP program that allows expedited clearance for pre-approved, low-risk international travelers upon arrival in the United States. Global Entry membership also includes access to the TSA PreCheck program with no additional application or fee required. If a Card Member applies separately for TSA PreCheck with the same eligible Card, the TSA PreCheck application fee is not eligible for a statement credit.
To receive the $100 Global Entry statement credit, Card Members must pay for the $100 Global Entry application fee with an eligible Card. Additional Cards on eligible Consumer and Business accounts are also eligible for the $100 statement credit. To receive the statement credit, the Global Entry application fee must be charged on the eligible Additional Card. Global Entry members can opt-in to TSA PreCheck by entering their Global Entry membership number (PASS ID) in the "Known Traveler Number" field each time a flight reservation is made on a participating airline. Alternatively, Card Members can add their Global Entry PASS ID to their frequent flyer profile(s) with the participating airline(s) and then ensure that their frequent flyer number is entered for each flight booking. If approved, membership into the Global Entry program is valid for 5 years and subject to the program’s terms and conditions. You must re-apply for the Global Entry program every five years for continuous benefits.
TSA PreCheck Fee Credit Option:
TSA PreCheck is an intelligence-driven risk based program managed by TSA that allows low-risk travelers to experience faster, more efficient screening at participating U.S. airport checkpoints for domestic and international travel. The TSA PreCheck application program is a DHS Trusted Traveler program. TSA began accepting TSA PreCheck applications on Wednesday, Dec. 4, 2013. Enrolling in TSA PreCheck does not guarantee selection for expedited screening each time a passenger travels.
To receive the TSA PreCheck statement credit of up to $85, a Card Member must pay for the TSA PreCheck application fee through any Authorized Enrollment Provider with their eligible Card. Additional Cards on eligible Consumer and Business Card accounts are also eligible for the statement credit of up to $85. To receive the statement credit, the TSA PreCheck application fee must be charged on the eligible Additional Card. If approved, Membership into the TSA PreCheck program is valid for the duration of the plan that the Card Member selected and subject to the program’s terms and conditions. Card Members will not receive a statement credit for a plan duration that is less than five years.
