Use your miles for the TSA PreCheck® application program fee. TSA PreCheck® is an expedited security screening program for travelers departing from airports within the United States. The TSA PreCheck® application fee is currently $85 for five years. If you use your miles to pay for the application fee, the current miles price is 10,000 MileagePlus award miles per payment code. If your TSA PreCheck® application is approved you may be eligible to travel through security checkpoints at participating airports without having to remove your shoes, light jacket or belt, and your laptop and liquids can stay in your bag — making for a smoother and faster security screening process. The TSA uses unpredictable security measures, both seen and unseen, throughout the airport. All travelers will be screened, and no individual is guaranteed expedited screening. For full program terms, visit the TSA’s website.
Please note: Travelers who are eligible for TSA PreCheck® will receive a Known Traveler Number (KTN). A KTN cannot be entered into a member’s MileagePlus profile unless the member’s name, gender and date of birth are already entered. Members who need to add or edit their name, date of birth or gender may do so in their Traveler Information on united.com. Please allow 14 days for changes to take effect.
Only members who are first-time applicants of TSA PreCheck® and have an account address in the 50 United States, District of Columbia, Puerto Rico or Guam who are physically located in the 50 United States, District of Columbia, Puerto Rico or Guam when the redemption occurs are eligible to use miles for a payment code that can be used to pay for the TSA PreCheck® application fee. Eligibility to use miles for a payment code that can be used to pay for the TSA PreCheck® application fee is at the discretion of MileagePlus and may change at any time without notice. Eligibility for TSA PreCheck® is determined solely by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). Please note that the TSA PreCheck® program membership is only open to U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents. Please visit the TSA’s website for more information.
