No I don't think you can, because, as I understand the system, as a non US citizen you would be arriving in the USA using a GE kiosk that requires a passport and these GE kiosks don't allow the use of GE cards - they are passport & PRC's only. See link, scroll down to section - how are GE cards used.

I can recommend San Juan as an excellent place for the GE interview. Wide open availability, and (in my case at least) a charming and chatty CBP officer who is a credit to his agency. Spot on time with my appointment as well. At the end of the interview I was given a practical demo of how to use the machine, and my final approval had come through by the time I got to the Admirals Club.

Totally agree (see my post in the BAEC GE thread) - very helpful and painless process, although glad I had my T-Mobile USA SIM card to be able to phone them to gain access (the buzzer is out of order but they mention this on the booking confirmation).

Hmm, had my interview at ORD around lunchtime yesterday but no signs of confirmation of completion of enrollment, even when I log into my GOES account. Looking at the above though, everyone seems to have gotten theirs at most a couple of hours after interview. (Despite someone saying it can take up to 72 hours)

Did anyone else's take longer than a few hours?

Maybe give them a quick call and see if they can check it's been completed ok?

Sorry to revive an oldish thread but are any promotional codes currently being released to UK citizens for Global Entry?

Global Entry Promo Code - UK Citizens

Anyone know if there is currently any way at all to get a Global Entry promo code? Either via an airline or otherwise?

Not unless you're an elite with an airline. Promo code doesn't equal CBP giving it away free. Promo code means someone else is picking up the $100 fee.

Unless you're a high level elite with United (1K or Global Services) or have a AmEx Platinum card, you're going to be ponying up $100.

If you're a US or Canadian citizen or a US or Canadian permanent resident, you can get GE for $50 by joining NEXUS.

OP is not trying to save money; a promo code is required for UK citizens to be eligible to apply for GE at full price. Unfortunately, I believe that all of the codes that CBP intended to release have already been claimed.

Someone mentioned that UK Citizens are not being approved for Global entry due to lack of reciprocal offering for non EU passport holders. I believe the uk are piloting a service for former IRIS users but that's all.

Any updates to where one can find promo codes for GE for UK citizens?
