Because GE is quicker.
was yesterday in EWR mobile passport had longer waiting the regular line, and GE Kiosk there was no waiting.

Landed in JFK T1 on 9/12/18 - Half of the GE machines were broken, and when done with the machines you get on the line with Mobile passport - whom of course they get straight on the line not having to use the machine prior. Luck had it that an usher called out all GE people to other customs windows to process. My companion who went with the regular line was out before me

Interesting that you had to wait in line after using the Kiosk. By me it was checked by agent standing next to the machine, took a second.

T4 the Kiosks are on the side & leads straight to an agent - T1 is against the back wall directly opposite the center line - and the center line is for GE/Mobile/Crew/APEC

Do you recommend Mobile passport over GE? No experience with Mobile passport, have been using GE for many years and I am about to renew?

Agreed, but is Mobile passport a complete alternative? Any pluses or minuses?

I guess it depends on the airport/terminal/time of day etc

And mobile doesn't give you PreCheck, doesn't work (IIRC) by pre-clearance airports

Made same mistake. AMEX wouldn't credit.
Oops!  Would love some advice... I charged global entry to a card 2 months ago , but didn't realize I already used that card a year ago... Now the credit won't apply... Any ideas?
Just a dp, I got a credit. Spoke to manager acted a little annoyed yet understanding... 'you know what I'll just add a $100 credit to your account '

Was curious to know if I sign up for someone under 18 whose birthday is in a week what will that do for him?
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.
