As travel corridors slowly reopen, a free 6-month CLEAR membership for new members will make things just a little bit easier. If you don't already have a CLEAR membership, you'll want to take advantage of this deal.
What is CLEAR?
CLEAR allows you to bypass the security line at airports and sporting events around the United States. There are CLEAR kiosks installed at over 30 major airports and 13 stadiums. CLEAR uses pre-registered drivers licenses or state IDs, and biometric identification. Once you get through the CLEAR kiosk, you can then skip to the front of the security line.
CLEAR has also partnered up with numerous companies including Delta, Alaska, Lyft, Hertz, and several sports teams to offer additional benefits.
Many airline rewards programs and credit cards offer discounted or complimentary screening programs as part of their benefits. See the full list here of frequent flyer programs and credit cards with these benefits. However, most of these programs only partner with TSA PreCheck or Global Entry. CLEAR works in conjunction with these security screening programs. But, CLEAR is a private company and not part of the TSA or Department of Homeland Security.
CLEAR memberships are usually $179 per year — which is the most expensive of all the expedited security screening programs. Some travelers can get a free CLEAR membership by having elite status or a particular credit card:
- Delta SkyMiles Diamond Medallion elites
- United Airlines MileagePlus Premier 1K elites
- Centurion® Card from American Express cardholders
Also, cardmembers of the American Express® Green Card can get a $100 statement credit when you pay for a CLEAR membership using your card. Plus, all Delta SkyMiles members can get a discounted rate of $109 per year. Between these two promotions, Green from Amex cardmembers can pay just $9 out of pocket each year.
Get Your Free 6-Month CLEAR Membership
Until the end of the year, anyone not already a member of CLEAR can sign up for a free 6-month membership.
- This family membership includes 3 adult family members and unlimited kids under 18.
- You must register before December 31, 2020, using promo code HOLIDAY6M.
- This offer is only available to those with an official U.S. identification.
- You need to complete your registration at the airport the next time you're at a participating airport
Traveling in the new year is looking more and more hopeful, especially with quarantine-free routes opening up such as Delta's flights from Atlanta to Amsterdam or Rome. A 6-month free CLEAR membership is a great way to try out the program to see if you want to continue with it after the summer months.
If you're already a member of CLEAR, use this opportunity to sign up the other members of your family for the program.
