CLEAR has opened a new blockbuster promotion together with United Airlines where Premier Members earn a 15,000 miles Mileage Plus credit for opening an account.
This offer is limited to Mileage Plus Premier members (Silver and above) who sign up under this campaign by April 1, 2022 and the miles will be deposited for use within 6-8 weeks through the United Airlines link under your account.
CLEAR has also a popular relationship with American Express and what makes this promotion especially lucrative is that you can combine it with both American Express credits (free for Platinum, $100 credit for Green and sometimes targeted offers for Gold).
United MileagePlus Premier Members: Sign Up Now to Receive Your Special CLEAR Rate and 15,000 Miles
March 17 through April 1, 2022, United MileagePlus® Premier® members receive 15,000 miles when they sign up for CLEAR. Trade the airport lines for vacation time with faster, easier and touchless travel. Terms and conditions apply.
Keep in mind this offer can be withdrawn (finished) at any time despite being officially online through April 1st. Last time around a similar offer with $100 for the United Travel Bank was ended prematurely. Sooner is better!
All United Airlines Mileage Plus members also profit from preferential pricing and Premiers pay $109 flat (free for Global Services and 1K):
This represents a $50-$60 discount over their regular rates.
American Express Platinum Cardholders (U.S.) now get the entire $169 fee waived. Of course for this United offer you need to sign up with a United account in order to get the 15,000 miles deposited into your United MP account.
Amex also has the following offer for Green cardholders:
So with this Amex credit not only can you get a free CLEAR membership but in combination with the United offer another 15,000 miles credit is also coming your way.
I really like CLEAR at the airports where it’s available and just in the last month have used it like a dozen times. It can often be a lifesaver depending on how late you are for your flight and the CLEAR representative walks you to the front of the pre-check line.
However, if you don’t have PreCheck on your boarding pass then you still have to go through the regular procedure.
In order to activate the account and use it, you need to complete the sign-up process at the airport with a representative and present a U.S. driver’s license or state ID, leave your fingerprints, and take a picture. If you don’t do that then the account just sits paid for and pending but this should still be enough to get the 15k miles.
15,000 Mileage Plus miles for Premier Members just to sign up for CLEAR is the best offer I’ve ever seen so far to get a CLEAR account.
Using your American Express credit which is included for Green and Platinum charge card members makes this a completely free offer. It doesn’t hurt to sign up and from what I can see there is no verbiage in the t&c that would require you to actually activate the CLEAR account at the airport. As long as you pay them that should be sufficient.
