How long did it take for AMEX to give the credit?

For me, it took 2-3 days

I just heard about this great benefit... can you get it for all card members or only for the main account holder?.. also anyone know about getting the 100k bonus still now even though it is past the time,.. i heard of people who have had success with this by applying for it and than calling and asking for the bonus miles..

GOES (Global Entry) - Expedited entry into the USA
« Reply #66 on: July 19, 2011, 11:21:54 AM »
I just completed the two-stage enrollment process in a neat program designed to absolutely expedite entry into the United States.

In a nutshell, once you are signed up, upon entry into the USA you DO NOT wait in line at immigration (think early morning queues at JFK from TLV!)
but instead go directly to a kiosk at the head of the line,

Here is what you do:
  • Swipe your passport
  • Place your hand on console for fingerprint verification
  • Answer a few customs questions onscreen (you do not need to fill out the form given to you on the plane)
  • Receive a printed receipt and continue on to baggage retreival and out of the airport!

The program costs $100, but American Express Platinum reimbursed me the $100 fee.

To enroll you must complete the application online (check out  https://goes-app.cbp.dhs.gov/) and then present
yourself (they give you an appointment date and venue)  for a short one-on-one interview at one of many airports around the country.
Assuming you do not have a major criminal history it should be smooth sailing.

This program is not limited to very frequent travelers and as an added bonus you can use your card to enter/exit Canada
and Mexico by car or boat (NOT for air travel) obviating the need to carry passport with you for these destinations.

I highly recommend this program for those not queasy about privacy issues (then again what is a passport).

This may be interesting here, especially for non-amex cardholders. Nexus (similar to global entry for USA/Canada) is only $50 and you get Global entry as well.

Re: GOES (Global Entry) - Expedited entry into the USA - CORRECTION
« Reply #69 on: July 19, 2011, 11:59:07 AM »
CORRECTION:   You CANNOT enter Canada using the card, but can use NEXUS expedited lanes to enter the US from Canada.

In addition, members of Global Entry may be eligibile in the near future for a
TSA Expedited Screening Pilot program (this would be a great benefit) for outbound travelers.

Sorry for post (myb821) but I haven't been able to find good info on this (potentially FREE) program on the forum and think it is deserving.

Can a husband and wife go for the interview together?

Does it matter if my wife's passport is still on her maiden name - will they accept a marriage certificate and not ask her to prove her primary residence and rely on my proof?

it seems to say on the website that they WILL be eligible.
