New: $179 CLEAR Credit
Platinum & Platinum Business


You can earn up to $179 in statement credits per calendar year when you use your (Business) Platinum Card to pay for your annual CLEAR membership. 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 $179 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.

Clear normally costs $179/year, but United and Delta non-elite members can enroll in CLEAR for $119/year. United and Delta cardholders and mid-tier elite members can enroll in CLEAR for $109/year. Top tier elites get CLEAR for free.

A CLEAR member can add up to 3 adults for just $60 each, so you can join as a Delta or United member, add a 2nd adult, and all charges will be reimbursed by AMEX every year.

$179 credit, good for 2 adults (and the whole family under 18) for $75.
Whats the best way of going about this? I have the Amex offer as well as a Platinum card. Obviously a Skymiles member as well. Would like to do wife and kids, but whatís the best way to maximize? Amex offer needs to be one transaction, Platinum benefit doesnít seem to need to be one charge.

Yeah I am in the same boat since I have the gold offer and I also have the Plat card. I am thinking doing myself ($119) + SO ($50) through UA portal for a total of $169 on my Plat card. As you mentioned, reason for choosing the Plat card is that I've heard the $119 and $50 charges post separately so that wouldn't work for the Gold card offer.

Does Clear use the date you sign up as the start date for your membership year? Or is it the date that you finish enrollment at the airport?

For example, letís say I do the online registration process on 7/19, but I donít actually go to the airport to finish my enrollment until 8/22. Which of those two dates serves as the start date for my membership year?
