In addition to adding Priority Pass Select membership American Express Platinum and Centurion (Business and Personal) Cards will be getting the $100 application fee for Global Entry credited back to their card accounts.
Global Entry is a ‘trusted traveler’ program that requires an interview and fingerprinting and then gets you front of line treatment of immigration (or use of machines) and customs.
Here’s the terms of conditions of the offer.
Global Entry is a U.S. government program. American Express has no control over the application and/or approval process, and does not have access to any information provided to the government by the Consumer and Business Platinum Card® or Centurion® Card member.
American Express has no liability regarding the Global Entry Program. If you need more information regarding the application and/or approval process, as well as the full terms and conditions of this program, please go to www.globalentry.gov.
The benefit is available to Consumer and Business Platinum Card® and Centurion® members only. To receive a $100 statement credit, Card member must complete the Global Entry application and pay for the fee with a valid Consumer and Business Platinum Card® or Centurion® Card. If an Account has Additional Cards, the Cards are eligible for $100 per Card. If approved, membership into the Global Entry program is valid for 5 years without additional charges and subject to the program’s terms and conditions. The $100 application fee must be paid regardless of a decision by U.S. Customs and Border Protection and is required to process the application. Membership is per person, and a separate application must be completed for each individual. Individuals under 14 years of age are not eligible for this program.
Please allow 6-8 weeks after the qualifying Global Entry transaction is charged to your Card account for statement credit(s) to be posted to the account. Card members can call the number on the back of the Card if statement credits have not posted after 8 weeks from the date of purchase. Card members are responsible for payment of all charges until the statement credit(s) posts to the account. To be eligible for this benefit, Card account(s) must be active and not in default at the time of statement credit fulfillment.
It’s a $100 per cardmember benefit, not amazing but on top of the $200 airline fee credit recently added and other new benefits it’s good to see American Express getting aggressive again with their higher-end products.
