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. But this new offer from United Airlines may take the cake.

Through Sept. 9, 2021, you can sign up for a CLEAR membership through this promotional link for a two-month free trial –  plus get $100 in United TravelBank cash, which you can put toward flights. This deal was first reported by Miles to Memories.

You need a free United MileagePlus account to be eligible, but this will only be available for the first 10,000 United MileagePlus frequent flyer members who sign up. So if you are thinking about taking advantage of this offer, don’t wait.

However, this offer gets much more attractive 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) after your two-month trial is up, you’ll be charged $119 a year.

If you put that charge on your Platinum Card, the full $119 will be reimbursed, and you will come out ahead with $100 in travel bank 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.

Finally, if you have the American Express® Gold Card, make sure to check your Amex Offers. There is currently an offer that will cover the entire cost of your first year of CLEAR membership – again netting you $100 in United TravelBank cash.

But if you don’t have either card and don’t want to keep CLEAR service past your two-month free trial, you will still be eligible to earn the $100 United TravelBank cash.
