Daraius, since I already have Global Entry, can I use the Global Entry credit for this card to apply for someone else?
Yes, Angie can use her card to purchase Global Entry for friend or family member, for free! Find out how!
What’s Global Entry?
Link: Global Entry
Link: Apply for Global Entry
Link: Global Entry Locations
With Global Entry, you can avoid the long lines at US Customs and Immigration when you return to the US from overseas. Plus, when you have Global Entry, you’ll also be approved for TSA PreCheck on most flights.
Global Entry charges a $100 application fee and your membership is good for 5 years.
You can get Global Entry for free (via a $100 statement credit) with credit cards such as:
- The Platinum Card from American Express
- The Business Platinum Card from American Express OPEN
- The Platinum Card® from American Express Exclusively for Mercedes-Benz
- Citi Prestige
Earning the Statement Credit on Global Entry for Someone Else
Angie already has Global Entry. So can she can still get the statement credit when she pays the Global Entry application fee for a friend or family member.
That’s because the credit card company only sees a charge from Global Entry on Angie’s statement and issues the credit. They aren’t able to tell whether the charge was for Angie’s application or someone else.
Note: You can only get the $100 Global Entry statement credit once every 5 years.
Global Entry will save you time at the airport, by avoiding the long lines at security and US Customs.
You can use this perk to get Global Entry for yourself or someone else!
