Does this card make me TSA pre-approved or I still need to apply for TSA PreCheck and pay the fee?

The content is accurate at the time of publication and is subject to change.

None of these cards allows you to pre-qualify for TSA PreCheck. However, you can get free TSA PreCheck as a credit card with TSA PreCheck credit can cover your TSA PreCheck cost. To cover the TSA PreCheck application fee, you need to get approved for a card with TSA PreCheck benefit and use the card’s benefit to pay for TSA Precheck or receive a statement credit towards the application fee. Please note that a credit card with TSA Precheck benefit does not get you TSA PreCheck. You still need to submit your TSA application to participate in the program and get approved. The card will only allow you to get free TSA PreCheck.
