I'll ask him. I believe he used precheck previously, so I'll see if I can get a comparison.
From what it seems the 2 are mutually exclusive.

You get one additional household member for $50 and anyone under 18 is free.
Eh, still will cost me $129 even with the discount, and I usually travel with DW, so it's useless unless she gets it as well.

Seems so. I'll see what he says.

If it really works I would pay that in a heartbeat.

At that price, it would really have to offer a lot for me to not be happy sticking with precheck.

Clear just let's you skip the wait to get your ID checked, they bring you to the front of the line to go directly to the metal detector/scanner. If you have precheck you'll go to the precheck line, if not, the regular line.

Ah, that's why it wasn't making sense.

Therefore if there is a line at pre it helps you with that as well.

w/ the Delta Skymile discount, cost for most people is just $99/yr.

but if you have GE/Precheck, personally I've never observed that line to be long enough that I feel passing that line would saved a material amount of time. Also the availability of Clear is still very limited, and usually only in the Delta terminal of airports that has it. maybe if you fly Delta a lot and the airports you frequent have crazy Precheck ID verification lines...

In JFK that seems to be the case as it is only available in Terminal 2 and in LGA it is in A, C, and D but not B which does not service Delta, in other airports such MIA, MCO and others it gets many other ailines

Thanks for posting, just worked for me. I'll try it out this week.

Even let me turn off auto-renew without cancelling the trial.

Just used Clear tonight at LAX T2.

There was an agent at the Clear lane at the bottom of the staircase who opened the rope to the main staircase up to screening. At the top of the stairs, there was the regular Pre-Check lane with like 4 people and another roped-off Clear area with one person.

Needless to say, I made it through slower than if I would've stayed with the TSA Pre-Check ID line, as the four people were long gone by the time I finished up with Clear.

Seriously, all that just so you don't have to show an ID??
