The CLEAR credit is interesting. AFAIK this is the first card with a CLEAR credit as opposed to GE or Pre-Check. What does CLEAR cost? I remember seeing that there were different prices for Delta members but I don't remember the amounts.

Normal pricing for CLEAR is $179/year, but if you link your Delta or United mileage number you will pay $119/year.

If you have a Chase United Explorer card, Chase United Explorer Business Card, Delta Business Gold, Delta Business Platinum, Delta Business Reserve, Delta Consumer Gold, Delta Consumer Platinum, or Delta Consumer Reserve you can pay $109/year.

Delta and United Silver/Gold/Platinum elites also pay $109/year.

Delta Diamond/360 and United 1K/Global Services elites get CLEAR for free!

So if you HAVE a United Explorer card you can use the $100 credit towards the $109 Clear membership? Ie, you don't have to actually pay for Clear with the Explorer card, correct?

Do we think the away credit will work for gift cards?  (I know it's excluded in the T&C).  Their bags are so expensive that you really need two credits to get a good deal, at least in my opinion.

$150 credit+$20 referral means you can get the carry-on for $55.

Yeah that's actually a very good deal.  You'll be seeing a nice amount of referral credits, I imagine!

I was seeing the 45k incognito offer which gives a $100 credit so cost would be $105 or $125 for the bigger bag, which is what I really want.  But I'm on DDF, so obviously I'm not spending $125 on it!

As a Green Card holder from the previous version, will i receive the CLEAR credit? I am assuming I will not get the Away credit as that seems tied to signup bonus.

YMMV. Amex is very unpredictable some had been denied the bonus after not receiving a pop up. GL

I was approved for 45k incognito as charge card. Says no set CL.
