Ouch. I did mine on a layover. Unless you're a very frequent flyer, spending a couple hours to get Global Entry on a non-travel day negates a big chunk of the time G.E. will save you. But with the interview backlogs at many airports, I guess people have to do what they have to do.
You're prob right. I'm not a frequent flyer at all but I want to use the Reserve credit and I hope that I can just keep renewing without interview again. Do you know if they usually require interview to renew?
If you are trying to get my attention/assistance and I'm not responding, please feel free to PM me. :)

It's hit or miss; seems to depend somewhat but not entirely on countries visited. Five years from now, though, if they do require another interview, one would hope you'd be able to just renew during a trip. The current backlogs are hurting the program.

I would posit that the few hours spent now to save 20 minutes in security by having precheck (which is automatic with GE) and making a flight you'd otherwise miss is a good enough reason, before adding any other considerations.
Re customs - I was once busted with an apple from Israel, they brought it up in my interview, with a stern warning.

True point about PreCheck. Forgot about that.

Wow about the Apple.

I booked a fight (domestic) with ultimate rewards last week and during booking process it said I could cancel until 9pm MT the following day.

The text specified that this was only if the flights were booked more than 7 days in advance.

DW left this morning and her lounge card came after she left. Can she use it on the way back without the card?

There's no digital card for the Chase version of Priority Pass, but she can swipe the CSR and Chase will refund the $27 (?) lounge fee up to two times if she calls. Not sure if guests are included in the refund policy. (She might need the PP number for the desk; not sure.)

PP? Sure.  She has to download the app,  or at least that makes it easier.  She may have to call in for a code,  which she gets by giving her membership number or credit card number.

Last I knew, the CSR PP isn't eligible for the digital version. People need to carry the physical card.

Which app would that be? Both of us are not into this smartphone stuff.  :-[

Yes, the digital cards exist — I've been using it for a year — but it's not available for the CSR's PP, unless something has changed in the past few weeks.
