Can anyone explain CLEAR to me? I have Global Entry which includes PreCheck but was sent an email from United about CLEAR.

Clear is an external third party vendor. To enroll you need to provide your biometrics, fingerprint and iris. On travel day you don't need any physical ID, they'll validate you with the info in their database. I have found, and used, them at sporting events and shows; cut the line! Not at all airports but growing. Absolutely a must have for me.

Totally agree. The airports I fly through typically have very long pre-check lines but clear is new enough that I can slip right through to the front. Not useful if you’re flying through smaller or Clear-free airports, but for those of us going through big busy ones 2+ times a week, I can’t imagine surviving without it

The way I look at clear is it is one less thing at the airport I have to worry about. I fly out of lga and security is always my least concern because I get through security in minutes no matter what. Also with EY it only runs us 80$ a year

No there is a flyer you send them after you sign up with there work email and they adjust it. If you dm me your email I can send it to you. Or you can look it up on the travel yammer

Does no one else hate the idea of paying a for profit company to collect your biometrics?

So many smartphones have a fingerprint scanner, is the same thing

Clear basically allows you to cut to the front of the precheck line. IMO, it's not worth the cost especially considering how few airports Clear is at.

As a non-citizen in US who’s not eligible for Global Entry, Clear has been the only available option to expedite for me.

Does this cover replacing an id for domestic ? Since California requires a real id now in 2020 how long does clear last til does it expire?

Clear basically let you go in front of the pre-check line. Most airports have pre check but not clear. I have both and fly between DCA and ORD. I use clear boarding in DCA and precheck at ORD

If your home airport has a Clear lane and you fly a lot, Clear makes sense. If your common destination(s) do, similar result. If both, it’s a no brainer. If neither, well...

I fly from an extremely busy airport. Even the PreCheck gets out of proportion on Monday and Holidays. Completely worth it if your company has a discount code. Even if only one of your destination offers it

I fly often and don’t spend more than a few minutes through TSA.

If you are traveling out of ORD tomorrow morning, gate agent has informed nearly every flight is oversold. There are hundreds sleeping in the airport tonight and flights departing 1-6 hrs late still.
