Card Members are eligible to receive one (1) statement credit every five (5) years for the application fee for either Global Entry or TSA Pre when charged to an eligible Card. Card Members will receive a statement credit for the first program (either Global Entry or TSA Pre ) to which they apply and pay for with their eligible Card regardless of whether they are approved for Global Entry or TSA Pre. However, Card Members can receive no more than one $85 credit or $100 credit, depending on which program the Card Member first applies for, every 5 years 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 Pre, 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 Pre Programs. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) (for Global Entry) and U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) (for TSA Pre) charge an application fee to process each respective application regardless of whether the Card Member’s application is approved. 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 Pre) but will not provide a statement credit for subsequent application fees charged to the same eligible Card within five (5) years, even if the original application is rejected.

Membership for Global Entry and TSA Pre is per person, and a separate application must be completed for each individual.
