Just go thru Delta and you would get the same price. If you are a tier member, I think it is $79/year otherwise $99/year.

FYI, this could be useful if you need yourself (Delta General Frequent Flier price $99) and then 2 family members at $50 each (children under 18 do not need this).

Says it has to be one transaction.

Also, if you have GE/Pre-check, this takes you to the front of that line. So if your Pre-check line gets long, say in the morning on a Monday, they will literally walk you to the front of the line after verifying with them.

Also, they have some sports stadiums now: https://www.clearme.com/sports

For those of us who fly often, it can save us upwards of an hour on arrival. The people who don't fly often can make security checks extremely slow, and paying $100 a year that can save me 40+ hours makes it a no brainer.

My home airport uses Clear, and every single time it is a MAX of 1 minute entry which means I can arrive 20 minutes before my flight boards without worry. I value my time at way more than $2/hour. It is a service offered to people who are willing to be vetted as being a safe citizen, and we are rewarded with a huge time savings. I don't mind paying because it costs money for the checks they must do annually, and I don't think every tax payer should cover my bill because I am a frequent flyer.

I tried this service last year around October. You do get to skip the security line, but the TSA agents were not happy about it. They actually made us go to a different line and still had to show my ID. I did the trial at LAX. After 30 days I canceled on the website and immediately a popup offer for $79.00 a year popped up. Obviously, YMMV as it has been a few months since then. Personally, I'd just stick with Global Entry w/ Pre-Check.

How CLEAR Works [thepointsguy.com]
As CLEAR's representative explained to me, today's airport security consists of passing through two steps: identity verification and security screening. Travelers who have enrolled in CLEAR have their own separate lane for the first step, where you can utilize biometric authentication (fingerprint or eye scan) at a kiosk rather than wait for a TSA agent to inspect your ID and scribble something on your boarding pass. And with CLEAR, no one will bark at you for "approaching the podium" before they're ready for you.

After your identity has been verified, a CLEAR representative will escort you to the actual security screening, bypassing everyone waiting in the first line. If you're also enrolled in TSA PreCheck, then you'll be taken directly to the Pre-Check line. Finally, children under 18 may use the CLEAR line for free when traveling with a paid member.


Biggest issue is that it's only at a handful of airports.

So TSA PRe - special ID check line, special security screening line (baggage inspection) [you get a KTN]
Clear - special ID check lane (automated, basically), screening line per your KTN status (either pre or standard)

I don't see anywhere that Clear gets you to the front of the baggage screening line though.
