No, Credit One does not pay for TSA PreCheck with any of their credit cards. If you want a credit card that reimburses you for the TSA PreCheck application and membership fees, you will need to open a credit card account with a different issuer.
There are many credit cards with the TSA PreCheck benefit currently on the market. Just note that, due to its value, the TSA PreCheck perk is generally found on cards with an annual fee. But if you use these cards frequently and take advantage of their benefits, they will often be well worth the cost.
No, Credit One does not require a travel notification when you’re travelling, unless you travel outside the U.S. So, make sure you contact Credit One before going on a trip abroad so your card does not get suspended due to suspected fraud.
Here’s what you need to know about the Credit One Bank travel notification policy:… read full answer
To notify Credit One of upcoming travel plans, call Credit One customer service 24/7 at (877) 825-3242, and let the customer service representative know where you’ll be traveling and how long you expect to be away.
Make sure your contact information on file with Credit One is up to date, should they need to reach you about any account issues.
If you’re planning on travelling abroad for longer than 21 days, you’ll need to contact Credit One Bank again after the 21 days have passed to let them know. The international customer service number is (702) 405-2042, available 24/7.
A Credit One Bank travel notification protects you against potential hassle. If Credit One detects activity on your account from an unusual location and there’s no travel notification, it may be flagged as an unauthorized transaction. As a result, Credit One will decline the transaction and block any further activity on the account. You will have to contact Credit One and verify that you attempted to make the purchase before they will unlock your card.
Global Entry and TSA PreCheck are both programs that speed up the airport security process. Global Entry makes it easy to re-enter the U.S. by airport, and TSA PreCheck is intended for domestic airport travel.
If you travel a lot, it’s a no-brainer to sign up for one of these programs. And if you’re already planning on signing up, it’s an excellent extra benefit to look for in a credit card.
Here’s a list of credit cards that pay for Global Entry or TSA Precheck applications:
It’s important to keep in mind that when your credit card offers Global Entry or TSA PreCheck, usually you will have to pick one or the other. After you sign up through the Trusted Traveler Program website, pay the fee ($100 for Global Entry, $85 for TSA PreCheck) with your credit card, and you’ll be automatically reimbursed for the fee on your statement. Most credit cards that offer this benefit will only reimburse one fee every 5 years, so choose wisely. Because Global Entry includes TSA PreCheck, it’s often best to just get Global Entry to cover all bases.
