Capital One Offers Global Entry and TSA Pre✓ Reimbursement for Spark Miles Cardholders
Starting today, the Capital One® Spark® Miles for Business will now offer a reimbursement feature for TSA Pre✓® and Global Entry. Cardholders who pay their Trusted Traveler fee with a Spark Miles card will receive a statement credit of up to $100.
TSA Pre✓® is a program that allows travelers to speed through airport security. According to the Transportation Security Administration,”most travelers get through Security in five minutes or less.” The service bypasses the need to remove shoes, belts and other accessories in the security line, and children under 12 can accompany a parent or guardian.
Global Entry includes all the services of TSA Pre✓®, as well as expedited customs screenings for international travelers. With Global Entry, travelers can use self-serve kiosks, rather than filling out paperwork by hand.
TSA Pre✓® costs $85 for a five-year membership, and Global Entry costs $100 for the same timeframe. Sparks Miles cardholders can qualify for a reimbursement once every four years.
The Capital One® Spark® Miles for Business offers 2X miles for all purchases, with no seat restrictions, blackout dates or foreign transaction fees. The card currently features a sign-up bonus of 50,000 miles for cardholders who spend $5,000 in the first three months. The annual fee is $95, but it is waived for the first year.
There are several other credit cards that reimburse for Global Entry, including the Bank of America® Premium Rewards® Visa® credit card, Citi AAdvantage Executive World Elite Mastercard, Mastercard® Black Card, and Capital One® Venture® Rewards Credit Card.
