I applied for a credit card, which includes coverage for global entry for the cardholder. Therefore, DH and I can get it for free. However, I understand that our 2 kids also need it. Do you think it's worth it? It's $100 each child, and lasts 4 or 5 years.

We'll be going on an international trip late next year, so I'm debating on whether to start the process now. Anyone else have experience with global entry? Recently, we took a trip to Hawaii, and we automatically got TSA Pre-Check (not sure why...assuming it was because we had 2 kids in our party), and it was nice not having to remove our shoes. So now, I'm wondering if every family with kids automatically gets TSA pre-check.
