Last Call for United Global Entry Reimbursement – Stretch it for 18 Months

United Platinum and above have until 1/31 to request a $100 payment voucher for Global Entry.

The voucher is good for 6 months and you can renew Global Entry up to 1 year before expiration so it can be stretched up to 18 months for renewals. Renewals add 5 years to original expiration date so you do not lose any time. I can confirm because I just did it.

See my earlier post with the details on the process. The direct United link is here.

    I just got my $100 check from United yesterday – I requested reimbursement in AUGUST.

    You can’t stretch anything if you already used it within 5 years….basically a one time deal then:

    Global Entry compensation is offered to current Global Services, MileagePlus Premier 1K and MileagePlus Premier Platinum members only, once every five years. You may apply for a new personalized code on or after March 17, 2017, if you maintain eligible status.

    Actually you can only apply 1 time every 5 years. So if you have already done, then you can not stretch.

    @Mike, @Evert – sorry was not clear, I meant for 1st-time qualified people that do not immediately have a Global Entry renewal, but would be within the 1 year within 6 months. Your separate point on those who already claimed a United credit within the last 5 years is important to note as well.

  • Mark

    Worth noting that you can use the credit for someone else as well – I did this a couple months ago as I already have GE.

  • Thanks for the reminder that you have an 18month renewal window! I got the confirmation email, but have not been able to actually get the code – anybody else have that problem?

    @Rupert it took a a few days for me, otherwise all I can recommend is contacting UA.
