Did You Know TSA PreCheck Enrollment is Available at Staples Stores?

TSA PreCheck Enrollment is now available at Staples Stores

Between the crowds, traffic, and expensive plane tickets, traveling during the holidays can be more stressful than fun.  That is why I strongly recommend having TSA PreCheck.  

One of the easiest ways to optimize your next airport visit and travel with ease is to ensure, at a minimum, you have TSA PreCheck.  

Optimize Air Travel

There are a few programs that can help optimize air travel and include TSA PreCheck, Global Entry, Mobile Passport and Clear.  These programs are all expedited screening programs that help travelers get through airport security checkpoints much faster. 

The main differences between all of these programs are that TSA PreCheck and Clear save you time when departing for flights, while Global Entry and Mobile Passport help save you time when returning to the United States from an international destination.

TSA Precheck Enrollment Now Offered at Staples

Now more than ever, there is no excuse not to sign up for TSA PreCheck, as it is so easy to enroll at more locations close to you, including at your local Staples Connect store.

You can enroll today for TSA PreCheck at participating Staples Connect stores and while appointments are appreciated, walk-ins are more than welcome.  I would recommend starting your application online and then scheduling an appointment at a participating Staples location near you to complete the 5-minute fingerprinting process to make things go smoothly. 

The application fee for TSA PreCheck has also been recently reduced and is $78 for 5 years or $15.60 per year over that time period.

By enrolling in TSA PreCheck, you can breeze through security.  You can keep your shoes, jacket and belt on; your laptop in its case; 3-1-1 compliant liquids in your bag; and enjoy a better overall travel experience.

TSA PreCheck allows low-risk travelers to experience faster, more efficient screening at participating U.S. airport checkpoints for domestic and international travel. 

How does TSA PreCheck work?

  • If you’re eligible and approved for the TSA PreCheck program, you will be given a Known Traveler Number “KTN” to use when making flight reservations. 
  • Participating airlines will print a TSA PreCheck indicator on your boarding pass. 
  • When you arrive at the airport, look for signs for the TSA PreCheck lanes and present your boarding pass and ID 
  • Children ages 12 and under may join you in the TSA PreCheck lane.
