Expedited airport screening for Loews Hotels loyalty program members

Here’s a interesting offer that may just spark a trend:

Loews Hotels & Resorts has partnered with the Department of Homeland Security to promote the Trusted Traveler Network, which meshes the U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s (CBP) Global Entry and the Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) Pre✓ programs.

Members of the hotel’s YouFirst Platinum loyalty rewards program will get complimentary enrollment in the Global Entry program. With a Global Entry membership, U.S. citizens are automatically qualified to participate in expedited screening with TSA’s Pre✓ program.

Current Platinum YouFirst members (which includes guests with 10+ stays) will be invited by email to participate in this one-time offer, which will made available for the next 60 days.

Good idea? For those who travel a lot and stay loyal to one hotel, you bet!
