   What I really wanted was to get Nexus as I go constantly from the u.s. to Canada but being that in YYZ there is no availability for an appointment up untill Oct 16th, I tried in the past walking up today agent asked him if I can take an interview he told me I have to book it in advance online so that takes care of that, I guess we'll have to do with GE until I can get Nexus, and lastly find a seller for 15$ to get the ge application fee, or find a freind of mine who has an au who never made use of the credit yet.

i had the same issue. People cancel all the time but unless you're constantly refreshing the page, you'll never get the dates you want because the way the website works is that the next person who signs up will automatically see the first available slot, which is the cancelled one.

Instead of checking myself all day, I wrote a program that checks every 2 minutes and texts me when a slot on a specific day opened up. Once i set it up, took less than a week and I was able to get interviews at YYZ for both wife and son on the day I wanted, within 30 minutes of each other.

PM me if you have specific dates in mind and want me to set it up to alert you.

That's kind of you offering to help.
 But believe it or not I found an open slot for today the 26th at 10:30am.
  I applied for GE vs Nexus on erev Y"K as the slots for the nexus enrollment center(In YYZ) was backed up till October 16th, having something(GE) is better then nothing as I'm only in Toronto for Y"T.
 Little did i know I would not be conditionally approved until a day before Suckos so flying out of jfk for a few dollars more was a bust vs lga for $99, hoping I would be conditionally approved and take the interview @jfk, but being that all that went south I looked periodically at the nexus enrollment center availibilty to see if anything opened and to my surprise I saw before yt that today morning was available, so took the 10:30am appointment and came at 11am and was in and out within 5 minutes, the whole interview is to be fingerprinted.
 Was a bust that I didnt apply for nexus if I was already going to yyz for the interview,the officers were also surprised why book an appointment for GE and pay $100 while Nexus includes the whole shebang for $50..
Ah gitten moed.
 
And yes was approved for GE,now it's time to sign the family up for Nexus.(Under 18 is free)
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

Do they consider checks part of the $10k limit? I thought it was $10 cash, but looks like I am wrong. Also is it $10k per person if you are travelling with family?

With the new mobile passport app, why are people still busy with GE?

They did, They told me if its endorsed in the back, then its counted. For some reason I had 2 checks totaling over $5k that i wanted to deposit a few days before, Just there was too of a long line at the ATM in the only Chase back in the Catskill neighborhood... That's called Bashert...
t's $10 per family or any group of people flying together.

This is what I plan to do, having both will give better choices.
