Yup Global entry has to be best...
In response to 141216: Global Entry and TSA Precheck, posted by Luanne M on Thursday, 10 August 2017, at 11:10 a.m.
It's true both global entry and TSA cards do NOT guarantee that you will get pre-check. If you read the TSA pre-check guidelines they say so. I got done in on a trip to Hawaii that was Denver to LAX on United and LAX to Kona on American. United gave me the pre-check for Denver but not for the rest of the flight and at that time you had to leave security to go from United to American.
You have to also make absolutely sure that the airline knows you have a known traveler number or they won't do it. I made sure it is correct in all my airline member accounts. They have been cracking down on airlines giving pre-check to first class and others without being screened. The airlines used to give pre-check to all preferred travelers.
You will also find that some airlines don't give pre-check. One of the ones I know of is Frontier Air. They refused to pay the TSA to be able to do it so none of their passengers ever get pre-check.
Remember TSA and Global entry are not good for ID anywhere other than airports. They are considered permits and not valid government ID's. It took me a long while to find out why no one would accept them as ID's.
It doesn't make a difference if you fly one way or round trip. I generally fly one way when I visit Colorado since I am rarely sure of when I will return ;-.]
I have a couple of years to go so but I have heard that they don't always require an interview for renewing Global Entry.
