Conditional Approval of Trusted Traveler Card Past Expiration- Global Entry/Nexus etc

Can such a card be used - to try to get US (ie TSA pre-check). or Canadian airport security.
To try for US and Canada Customs and Immigrations kiosks/machines - for entry into

Especially if one of the officials authorized to deal with the tasks and asks to look at the card - he/she will see the card has "expired" - even though it has been conditionally approved for almost a year after that expiration date.

1) Canada: physical card is (quickly) examined by line minder. Might or might not notice expiration date.

2) USA: Card is never used to grant access to Precheck line - only indication printed on BP is used. If TSA decides you are still eligible for Precheck, it will be printed on the BP.

From the US CBP website:
When will my TTP membership expire and how soon can I renew my membership?

If you submit a renewal application before expiration of your current membership, then you can continue to use your benefits until the renewal is finalized (up to 6 months after your expiration date).

TSA doing the travel document check for PreCheck will generally ask for another ID if they see even a very recently expired GE card. With a PreCheck boarding pass comes PreCheck screening at applicable checkpoints regardless of the basis for PreCheck selection at check-in — but that is contingent upon getting cleared by the TSA TDC to proceed to PreCheck screening.

TSA TDC will more frequently accept a recently expired ID by itself if it’s not for PreCheck.

CATSA more generally seems to reject expired GE cards when it comes to priority screening for “trusted travelers” flying from Canadian airports.

For eligible airline flights at relevant airports/check-in facilities, conditionally-approved, GE renewal members generally continue to get PreCheck boarding passes for at least some period of time after the expiration date on the card.
