Here’s an extremely lucrative promotion to join CLEAR…

CLEAR is a company that helps you get to the front of the ID check lines at dozens of major airports in the United States using your biometric data. While joining CLEAR usually costs $179 per year, savvy travelers shouldn’t be paying that much.

First of all, United MileagePlus members can receive a discount on a CLEAR membership (United owns a stake in CLEAR):

At the moment there’s a further promotion, as you can receive a $100 United TravelBank credit when you sign-up through the current promotion:

  • This is valid for the first 50,000 MileagePlus members who sign-up by February 9, 2022 (of course there’s some risk here, but I assume this limit hasn’t been reached yet, and that the promotion page will be updated when it is)
  • The United TravelBank credit will be deposited within 8-10 weeks of registering for the account
  • The United TravelBank credit will be valid for nine months from the time that it’s deposited
  • You need to sign-up through the promotion page, and this is only available to new members

In other words, you’d be paying $109-119 for a membership, and then you’d get $100 worth of United TravelBank credits.

This promo stacks with Amex CLEAR credits

There are currently three American Express cards offering CLEAR credits as annual perks:

These promotions stack. In other words, you could sign-up through the United link and charge the $109-119 fee to your Amex, then you’d get that full amount reimbursed, and then you’d get a $100 United TravelBank credit on top of that. If you play your cards right, you’re basically being paid to join CLEAR.

Bottom line

At the moment you can receive a $100 United TravelBank credit when you register for CLEAR at United’s promotional pricing (which is $109-119 per year). Not only that, but you can stack this with the CLEAR credits offered by select Amex cards, so that you can pay nothing out of pocket, and get a $100 United TravelBank credit out of the deal.

Do you plan on taking advantage of this CLEAR & United promotion?
