CLEAR is a private trusted traveler program that allows you to bypass security lines in 10 airports across the country. (You can find more about CLEAR here.) Normally the price is $179 per year, however they are offering 1 year free when you register and use the promotional code VDAYFAM15 through 2/15/2015.
This promotion is meant for current members who are referring their own family members, but it appears anyone can register with the code. I have confirmed that you are able to register online with the code, however I have not yet finished the in-person registration.
While the promotional code does seem to work, these are the official terms, “Offer valid for new “companion” members only through 2/15/15. Companion add on should be a member of the same household as the primary CLEAR member. Companion membership will renew at $50 after one year.”
You do have to register with a credit card, although it won’t be charged right away. Unfortunately they will automatically charge you for renewal if you don’t cancel and it doesn’t seem there is a way to turn off auto-renewal online.
CLEAR is located in the following airports:
- Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW)
- Denver (DEN)
- Houston, George Bush (IAH)
- Houston, Lobby (HOU)
- Las Vegas (LAS)
- Orlando (MCO)
- San Antonio (SAT)
- San Francisco (SFO)
- San Jose (SJC)
- Westchester County, NY (HPN)
- Miami (MIA) *Coming Soon
This deal and the CLEAR service may be of use to people who live or travel regularly through one of the above cities. With that said, the code is meant for referred family members, so your mileage may vary.
