I set off the metal detector alarm at the PreCheck line at SEA on 10/22 and I was allowed to try again after taking my wallet out of my pocket... no one suggested I needed to go to the body scanner.

It was my brand new SPG Plat for Life card which I had put in my's made of metal and it was the reason the alarm went off. So I now know I can't carry it in my wallet when I travel (which is kind of unfortunate).
