I wrote a post about CLEAR and how much I like it. See details below. I was asked how to get a deal on a CLEAR membership, so here you go (I personally see value in it even for $179 but, of course it is always better to save money.) Keep in mind that the Gold Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express and the Platinum Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express have limited time offers right now that will be expiring soon. If you had planned on taking look at these cards, now is a great time to do so. Having these cards will also save you on your CLEAR membership.

As previously posted.…Every once in a while there is a major deal that for travelers that comes around. Something that is a true game changer. Not everyone jumps on it at once. But for those who do, it’s a major deal for traveling. This major deal that I just experienced is a huge game changer. Something that will not only improve the way I travel, but also my family. It will shave off potential long periods of dead time from most of my trips and give more certainty when planning arrival times to airports. The major deal for travelers is CLEAR which will greatly improve travel experiences and I’ll share my CLEAR experience from a recent trip.

Major Deal For Travelers

If you haven’t heard of it, CLEAR is the quickest and fastest way to clear airport security. It’s expanding and currently as of the time of this post, open in 16 airport CLEAR locations, after just opening up in New York and Atlanta.

How To Use CLEAR

Step 1) Enroll Online and stop by a dedicated CLEAR line to register your biometric information. Then stop by a dedicated CLEAR lane on your next trip.

Step 2) Step into CLEAR lane and verify your credentials with a boarding pass

Step 3) Speed through security in less than 5 minutes and enjoy your free time.

CLEAR Security Lane Process

For me, the CLEAR security lane process is the best part. Using CLEAR literally bypasses all the other passengers in other lines. You’ll avoid the long lines of regular security and skip the people in the TSA Pre lines.

My CLEAR Experience

During a recent experience, there was a line around the corner in TSA Pre. I simply walked up, scanned my boarding pass, tapped my two fingers onto a key pad, then was escorted to secure door where the CLEAR gentleman said ” CLEAR Registered Passenger Cleared”. I walked right up to the conveyor, placed my bag on the belt, walked through the normal TSA Pre screening process, grabbed my bag and was on my way to the gate. It literally took less than 3 minutes. Precious time savings and more certainty in amount of time I need before the airport.

How To Get CLEAR

You can enroll for CLEAR online by simply visiting this link. Then all you have to do is stop by a kiosk the next time you are at a CLEAR airport location. Then you’ll be setup to use the fast lane at available airports.

Bottom Line

The next major deal for travelers to improve the experience is here. It’s called CLEAR. If you’ve experienced it before, please drop a note about your experience in the comments. Others would like to hear. If you haven’t heard of CLEAR, consider checking it out.

  1. Clear seems OK to me but I still would LOVE to hear how the TSA agreed to or got paid to agree to letting Clear customers bypass the lines (even Precheck)? Just wondering how that all worked. Maybe a good topic for a future post.

  2. I used clear in the past during the free trial and loved the 3 experience I had, as I don’t travel a ton I was holding off on renewing my membership at $180. If I can get the same at $99 I sure will keep it, as I live in a city which has Clear and my frequent destinations also have Clear now.

    Quick question: How do I get the promo prices mentioned above, I don’t see any option in my skymiles account or my amex offers. Also the Clear website has only one pricing option of $15/month, billed annually @ $179. Am I missing something here?
