Usually, you'd want to avoid New York's Penn Station at all costs, but here's a reason you may actually want to go — you'll be able to enroll in Global Entry there for a limited time. It's a must-have for travelers, even if you only go abroad a couple of times a year. With it, you'll get expedited access back into the US, bypassing the "normal" immigration line and the long wait times that usually come with it. In most cases, you apply online and then have an in-person interview before you can be approved as a Global Entry traveler.

From June 26 through July 28, 2017, you'll be able to go to the United Airlines Ticketing Office in Penn Station and enroll. Here's how the process works in order to get approved at Penn Station:

United is offering in-person appointments in Penn Station Mondays through Fridays from 8:00am to 4:00pm. If approved, you'll be able to add your nine-digit PASS ID number to all of your frequent flyer profiles, giving you both TSA PreCheck and Global Entry access.

As a reminder, there are several credit cards that will give you a fee credit in order to get Global Entry for free. For example, the Platinum Card from American Express, Chase Sapphire Reserve and the Citi Prestige all come with a Global Entry fee credit, meaning you could get the service for free. If you're based in or around New York and don't yet have Global Entry, it could be worth making your way over to Penn Station in the coming weeks to get approved.
