From six-month free trials to new credit card perks that cover the entire annual cost, we've seen a handful of lucrative ways to get signed up for CLEAR® Plus for less and then get through airport security faster over the years. This latest is your chance to get $75 to put towards rides to the airport when you sign up for the security service.
CLEAR and Uber teamed up for a promo: You can currently get a $75 Uber credit when signing up for CLEAR® Plus through this link for the first time. That offsets the service's otherwise hefty $189 annual fee – but if you pay with an Amex card like *amex platinum* or the *amex green*, a credit will kick in to cover the entire cost! Danny Deal Guru first flagged this new promo.
It's only available for first-timers to CLEAR® Plus – there's no way to pocket this Uber voucher if you're already signed up. This special promo will only last through Oct. 20 at 11:59 p.m. ET, so you'll want to sign up within the next week.
CLEAR says you'll get your $75 Uber credit no later than Oct. 24. Once you get it, it's yours to use until it expires on April 24, 2024.
CLEAR® Plus bills itself as a must-have for frequent travelers, putting you at the front of the airport security line – or cut to the front of the TSA PreCheck queue, if you have that separate service, too. At $189 a year. The price is certainly steep … and it can be hit or miss.
Best case scenario, you see a short CLEAR® Plus line, quickly confirm your identity at a kiosk, and get through security in minutes. Worst case, the CLEAR Plus® lane is longer than even TSA PreCheck, and you're forced to confirm your identity again with an ID check due to growing requirements from the federal government. Personally, I've experienced some of both.
On the plus side, CLEAR has rapidly expanded to 50-plus U.S. airports and counting – including smaller regional cities.
