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 and get through airport security faster over the years.

But this new offer from United Airlines takes the cake: You can currently get $100 in UnitedTravelBank cash (which you can put toward flights) when signing up for CLEAR. 

Through Feb. 9, 2022, you can sign up for a year of CLEAR membership through this promotional link to get that $100 TravelBank bonus. This promotion is capped at the first 50,000 users, so you'll want to act fast. Doctor of Credit first reported this deal.

You can use United TravelBank funds toward almost any United flight. In this case, the TravelBank cash you earn will expire just nine months after it's deposited – though that should still be plenty of time to put it to use.

You need a free United MileagePlus account to be eligible for this promo, as that gets you a discounted registration rate of just $119 a year – down from the standard $179 annual price. But you can drop that price even farther with the right credit card in your wallet.

This offer gets even better if you hold the Platinum Card® from American Express – which currently offers up to a $179 annual credit to cover the cost of CLEAR membership. So as long as you have a United MileagePlus frequent flyer account (which is free to create), you'll be charged $119 a year even signing up through this promo

If you put that charge on your Platinum Card, the full $119 will be reimbursed, and you will come out ahead with $100 in United TravelBank cash. Even better, since the Amex Platinum CLEAR credit is for $179, you could even add a family member to your account for $50 each year and that would eat up the remainder of the credit with no additional out of pocket cost.

The American Express® Green Card also has a slightly smaller credit for CLEAR of up to $100 a year.

Bottom Line

This is a great offer if you haven't yet signed up for CLEAR. You must register by Feb. 9, 2022. And only the first 50,000 United MileagePlus members who register through the promotional link will be eligible, so

Even if you're not completely sold on CLEAR, this is a great chance to sign up and give it a shot while getting some extra out of it. And if you've got an Amex Platinum Card in your wallet, you should come out way, way ahead.
