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 ExpressThe 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.
