I'd be very careful about this. You are restricted to booking hotels at a particular web site that I've never heard of, and prices could be much higher than elsewhere.

This would be perfect if it was Global Entry

"The PIN for TSA Precheck enrollment must be used at an authorized TSA Precheck Enrollment Center by December 31, 2020."

"Hotel pin can be used three times for $50 off three separate stays ($150 total value); hotel pin does not expire."

So that's cool that the hotel PINs do not expire, but I assume the hotels need to be booked THROUGH groupon then? That's a little annoying.

Interesting deal, would consider biting if I didn't just get approved for Global Entry.

Might want to give this a read first. Deal isn't as good as it first appears.

IF you travel enough to really take advantage of PreCheck/GE, you might be interested in a travel related credit card, and many of them include GE credit as one of the perks. So definitely consider that option too...

And the "promotional value" needs to be used by June 30, but it's not clear how much of this deal is "promotional".

I would also be careful of anything from TPG as they seem to think that pitching a new credit card is the solution to anything...

LOL since OCT. 2019

All the hotels listed generally offer a fair discount through their own price match guarantees and you earn rewards, I am finding great value in letting them duke it out with OTAs. Generally, I lean towards Priceline, Hotels.com or PMing direct with name brand. You can further help yourself whenever gift card offers come up as well. I would pass on this deal. TSA Pre Check has a longer line sometimes so it isn't always a deal, I often see folks just hop on over into the general queue.

I just flew in from 3 weeks in Fiji and NZ, got my GA interview done as I was going thru customs. My credit card paid the $100 fee, so GA for 5 years and TSA PreCheck to boot, NICE!

To be fair it IS the solution to a LOT of things travel related- including how to get more "free" global entry/precheck credits than you're likely to even be able to use.

TPGs problem (well, one of em) is they're not an even remotely objective source for deciding which card(s) to get or in what order.
