If I have 2 cards with different card numbers, can I use it for 2 different GE applications (myself and spouse)?

Does this work for NEXUS too?

Since this topic is more related to the respective credit card forum than EM&PR, I'll move to the Citi|TY Rewards forum.

I have the same question too.

Curious whether your credit has appeared yet? I paid my GE fee on 5/17, no credit yet. I was planning to cancel (or downgrade) my card after the next billing cycle, so I'm hoping the credit doesn't take forever to appear.

I had paid my daughter's GE with Prestige and got the statement credit posted in the next statement.

It posted exactly on 5/22, the day my statement ended.

I then went to an AA lounge, using the card for what I expected to be my last time, and called Citi from within the lounge to cancel the card.

...and ended up keeping the card!

These are the retention offers they gave me:

1. Statement credit of $100
5000 AA miles
$1500/month for 3 months

2. $50 statement credit for next 7 billing cycles
$1500/month for 7 months
begins 1 business day from date of acceptance of offer

I ended up keeping the card with #2, so I'll get $350 in statement credits, and by spending $1500/month x 7 months, that'll be an easy 10,500 miles too! I plan to just do it on Simon Mall GCs every month to keep it easy to keep track of.

I don't think the credit works for NEXUS, I got an email about the benefit and it only said Global Entry or TSA Pre Check.

I personally just finished my interview for NEXUS yesterday and started using it immediately to re-enter the US with Global Entry. It was pretty awesome since the line for customs was at least 200 people deep.

(After you do your interview for NEXUS, you can use Global Entry immediately, but you can't use NEXUS until your card arrives in the mail 7-10 days later.)

Any new experiences?

Just got the card this month, and I have global entry from two years ago (AMEX Plat). No one to gift the credit to...any ideas what to do? Possible to reset the 5 years somehow by paying in advance (highly doubt it).

Chances are I'll be canceling this card in a year before the second fee comes due.

I doubt Citi cares if you use the credit to pay for somebody else, that's why it's only usable once every 5 years.

In my case I'd paid using a different card, a month before I applied for Prestige.

Corner a co-worker who travels a lot and said "Hey, how would you like a significant discount off the GE app fee?"

If you use a virtual account number with a $100 limit, doesn't even need to be somebody you really trust.

Well, you have to trust the person to charge it for GE not something else.

Just another data point: I paid the $100 Global Entry fee on 8/16 and $100 statement credit posted to my account on 8/20.
