Paying for JetBlue airfare with the Barclaycard JetBlue card, JetBlue Plus, or JetBlue Business to earn additional bonus points makes this promotion richer.

The new additions are Aeromexico, Cape Air, Etihad, and Seaborne Airlines.

This means when you fly these airlines at eligible US airports, you’ll have expedited security screening and won’t have to take off your shoes or remove a laptop from your bag.
You can apply for TSA Pre-Check, but it’s a better deal to sign-up for Global Entry (which comes with TSA Pre-Check). Plus, with Global Entry you’ll get through US Customs faster when you travel back to the US.
Global Entry costs $100 and is valid for 5 years. But the fee is refunded if you pay with one of these cards:

Million Mile Secrets reader, Nick, tweeted:
I’m soon to be a college grad, and I want points to travel. Should I apply for the Chase Sapphire Preferred or Premier Rewards Gold Card from American Express?
