I’ll also show you how to get the $85 TSA PreCheck fee refunded!
I’ll show you where a few of these new TSA PreCheck centers are opening. And discuss whether it’s a good idea to pay for TSA PreCheck with your miles.
More TSA PreCheck Enrollment Centers & Paying for TSA PreCheck With United Airlines Miles
United Airlines will be partnering with the TSA to open more TSA PreCheck enrollment offices in convenient locations outside of airports. Like at New York’s Penn Station and the Willis Tower in downtown Chicago.
Here’s the site to find the enrollment center nearest you.
But I’d still rather have Global Entry. Because it nearly guarantees you TSA PreCheck on every flight with a participating airline.
And cards like The Business Platinum® Card from American Express OPEN, Citi Prestige, and Ritz-Carlton Rewards card, give you a $100 statement credit for the $100 Global Entry application fee.
You can also use the statement credit from the AMEX Business Platinum card for the $85 TSA PreCheck fee. And Orbitz platinum members can get a rebate code for the TSA PreCheck enrollment fee.
Using Miles for TSA PreCheck
United Airlines also announced that later this summer, you’ll be able to use United Airlines miles to pay for the $85 TSA PreCheck application fee. But they didn’t mention how many miles you’ll need.
And remember, if you have an award flight in Business Class or First Class, you will often qualify for a faster security screening lane.
