CLEAR is a biometric-based membership service that allows travelers to go directly to the front of the TSA PreCheck line (if you're not enrolled in PreCheck, you'll go to the front of the normal TSA screening line) at several airports across the country that participate in the program. This week, CLEAR has indicated that it will expand its service to four more major airports that were conspicuous holes in the network — Atlanta (ATL), Los Angeles (LAX) and New York (JFK and LGA). No specific timeline was given regarding this expansion, other than that you can expect the service to roll out 'in the coming weeks.'

Skip the long TSA lines with CLEAR.

Currently, CLEAR airports include Austin (AUS), Baltimore (BWI), Dallas (DFW), Denver (DEN), Detroit (DTW), Houston (IAH and HOU), Las Vegas (LAS), Miami (MIA), Orlando (MCO), San Antonio (SAT), San Francisco (SFO), San Jose (SJC), Seattle (SEA), Washington, D.C. (DCA and IAD) and Westchester County Airport (HPN) — in addition to select sporting venues.

Membership to CLEAR normally costs $179 per year, but there are a number of ways to score a discount to your membership. Delta Diamond Medallion members get it for free, and Platinum, Gold and Silver Medallions can get their memberships for just $79 per year. Just for being a member of the Delta SkyMiles program, you can get CLEAR for $99 annually. If you're a Founderscard member, you'll get a 6-month membership for free, and then you'll receive a discounted membership of $140 after your trial is over.

How we chose these cards

Our points-obsessed staff uses a plethora of credit cards on a daily basis. If anyone on our team wouldn’t recommend it to a friend or a family member, we wouldn’t recommend it on The Points Guy either. Our opinions are our own, and have not been reviewed, approved, or endorsed by our advertising partners.
