PreCheck is great, but CLEAR is amazing.

Once upon a time, PreCheck lines were always short, but thatís no longer a guarantee. With PreCheck these days you may be able to walk right up to security or you may need to wait 20 minutes.

CLEAR allows you to skip to the front of the line. If you have PreCheck you can skip to the front of the PreCheck line and if you donít have PreCheck you can skip to the front of the regular line.

You donít need to take out your ID either, your fingerprint or eye act as your ID.

Quote
The dependability that skipping the line gives you is simply amazing. It means I can leave my house 55 minutes before a flight and know that I wonít miss my flight out of CLE. When Iím with my family Iíll leave plenty of time and enjoy the airport lounge, but if Iím solo, the less wasted time in the airport is always a win.

CLEAR also works for sports stadiums which is a nice bonus on top of skipping the lines at the airport.

A full list of CLEAR locations can be found here. www.clearme.com/where-we-are

More locations are being added thanks to CLEARís new partnership with United. Locations will soon be added in United hubs like Chicago, Houston, and Newark.

In NYC that means you will be able to use CLEAR at LaGuardia, JFK, Newark, Westchester County, Citi Field, Yankee Stadium, and Madison Square Garden.

You can signup for CLEAR here and get a code for 2 months free. https://fave.co/32XZZSX

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

The Amex Green card offers a $100 annual statement credit for CLEAR, which is great. That lowers the cost of membership from $119-$109 to just $19-$9/year depending on the United/delta card you have. $9/year for Delta or United cardholders/elites or from $19/year for non-cardholders or non-elite members.

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

A CLEAR member can add up to 3 adult family members for just $50 each.

Kids under 18 can go with their parents for free without a membership or biometrics required.

CLEAR isnít cheap, but if it helps you make a flight that you would otherwise miss due to a long line then it will be worth its weight in gold.

Don't have a Green card.
I'd assume it works from the language though, and it's another way for people to monetize the credit.

Nothing in the terms seems to exclude it.....


áBenefit Terms

$100 CLEAR Credit

You can earn up to $100 in statement credits per calendar year when you use your American Expressģ Green Card to pay for your annual CLEAR membership. This benefit is only available for the American Express Green Card. Traditional Green Cards and Senior Green Cards are not eligible. Enrollment in CLEAR is required. CLEAR memberships automatically renew each year unless canceled and CLEAR will charge the applicable membership fee to the Card CLEAR has on file. American Express has no control over the application and/or approval process for CLEAR, and does not have access to any information provided to CLEAR by the Card Member or by CLEAR to the Card Member. American Express has no liability regarding the CLEAR program. If a Card Member's application is not approved by CLEAR, CLEAR will refund the charges. If the statement credit benefit has been applied before CLEAR refunds the charges, that statement credit will be reversed. Purchases by both the Basic Card Member and any Additional Card Members on the Card Account are eligible for statement credits. However, the total amount of statement credits for eligible purchases will not exceed $100 on the Card Account per calendar year. For additional information on the CLEAR program, including information regarding membership, eligibility, and for a list of participating locations, as well as the full terms and conditions of the program, please go to www.clearme.com. The CLEAR program is subject to change, and American Express has no control over those changes. Please allow up to 2-4 weeks after a qualifying CLEAR transaction is charged to your Card Account for the statement credit to be posted to the Account. American Express relies on accurate transaction data to identify eligible CLEAR purchases. If you do not see a credit for a qualifying purchase on your eligible Card after 4 weeks, please call the number on the back of your Card. Card Members remain responsible for timely payment of all CLEAR charges. To be eligible for this benefit, your Card account must not be cancelled or past due at the time of statement credit fulfillment. If a charge for an eligible purchase is included in a Pay Over Time feature balance on your Card Account, the statement credit associated with that charge may not be applied to that Pay Over Time feature balance. Instead, the statement credit may be applied to your Pay In Full balance. For additional information, call the number on the back of your Card.

Yep, that was me who posted.

I had set up a brand new family plan consisting of three people. 

Charged $109 (Skymiles discounted rate) to one Green card, updated billing info to another Green card, and added two family members at $50/each.  Received statements credits within few days after that for both cards.

Any way to pay to extend membership when you're under trial or do you have to wait until the trial ends?

Not sure, you can try online chat to see if they can convert your plan to a full membership immediately.
