Update: The offer mentioned below has expired and is no longer available.
CLEAR is a service that uses biometrics to help members pass through security queues at airports and stadiums faster than ever, and it’s a popular program for savvy travelers who don’t want to wait in long lines.
Now, CLEAR is again offering an exclusive deal to members of United’s loyalty program to earn a nice chunk of miles.
Here’s everything you need to know about this new promotion!
Earn Up to 15k United Miles After Signing up for CLEAR
CLEAR is running a promotion where United MileagePlus members can earn up to 15,000 MileagePlus miles after simply registering for the service and paying the annual membership fee.
United MileagePlus members will receive 10,000 miles while MileagePlus Premier (Silver, Gold, Platinum, and 1K) members will receive 15,000 miles when they sign up for CLEAR.
Here at Upgraded Points, we value United Airlines MileagePlus miles at 1.3 cents per mile, making this haul worth $195.
CLEAR recently raised the price of membership from $179 to $189 annually, though there are ways to get a discount on the cost of membership.
United Premier Platinum, Premier Gold, and Premier Silver members, as well as United credit cardholders, can get a membership for just $109 annually, while regular members can get it for $119.
Even better, there are ways to get a CLEAR membership for free, thanks to statement credits offered by several travel rewards credit cards. Travelers with The Platinum Card® from American Express, The Business Platinum Card® from American Express, or the Centurion® Card from American Express receive an annual statement credit that covers the cost of a CLEAR membership.
The Fine Print
Of course, there are some terms and conditions you should know about before registering for this offer from United and CLEAR.
You must be a MileagePlus Premier member to qualify. The offer is valid from May 27, 2022, through July 9, 2022, and you must register directly through CLEAR’s landing page to qualify. This offer is not combinable with any other offer.
CLEAR says members should allow 6 to 8 weeks after completing the qualifying activity for miles to post to their accounts.
If you miss this promotion, there are other ways to save on membership. United Premier 1K and Delta SkyMiles Diamond Medallion members get free membership, while Platinum Medallion, Gold Medallion, and Silver Medallion members and SkyMiles credit cardholders get a membership for just $109. Finally, general SkyMiles members can purchase a membership for $119.
