Quote from the Amex Press release

http://aexp.co/iRT

$100 Global Entry Credit -- The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) offers a program called Global Entry that allows approved members expedited clearance and the ability to bypass lines at International Arrivals in major U.S. airports when returning from traveling abroad. Card members who apply and pay the application fee of $100 with their Platinum Card will receive a statement credit. And once the application is approved, the membership will be valid for five years
Do you think I can open a GE account for my wife & get credited on 1 of my Amex Platinum accounts? (I have 1 personal & 1 biz, both in my name)

Looks like it should work, considering they're crediting the $99 purchase.

On the eligibility page it says:

You may not be eligible if:

Have been found in violation of any customs, immigration or agriculture regulations or laws in any country;
Entering the US, they once found a whole salami (from romanian ;D) that we didnt eat on the trip and confiscated it. He did type something in the computer. Would that disqualify me and would it be pointless to apply?

Is it worth anything  if ur traveling with a baby? Since I believe that u must be over 14 to apply!
I Just completed my GOES interview at JFK, took about 5 miniutes.

I asked them if i travel with family members who r not registered ie: children, and she said you can still go to the GOES kiyosk, and you will meet the officer there who will take you the front of the line

for those of us who have arrived on a 747, the line could be big.

Interesting...I assume the same would apply with a spouse? Would it be any more beneficial for both of us to have it? Meaning, will it go any quicker?

that question was also asked, the benefit of both having it is, you both will be able to scan your passports, and not having to fill out the that blue custom form.

otherwise its just getting you in front of the line

Don't need to wait 30 days according to many posters if you call reconsideration.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.
