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.
I did go to the TSA at LAX and he let me thru the pre-check line when I showed the global entry card.

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.
