CLEAR is one of the best ways to save time at the airport when going through security. When you’re a CLEAR member, you’ll essentially be able to bypass the entire security line, whether you have PreCheck or not. Ultimately, it can be a huge time saver and something that every frequent traveler should look into getting.

The best news is that you can get two months of CLEAR for free by using the code TPG2M. After your two-month membership is up, you can pay to continue your membership. Or if you’re interested in getting a discounted annual rate up front, you can choose to sign up at a preferred annual rate of $149 by using the code TPG149 and paying for your membership up front.

Once you’re a member you can zip to the front of the security lane on your next trip when you depart from a participating airport. After your identity is verified in a separate lane at a CLEAR kiosk either through a fingerprint or iris scan, a CLEAR representative will walk you to the front of that line and then will place you before the next person in either the regular screening line, or the PreCheck line, if you’re also enrolled in that program. Even better, you don’t have to fumble around in your wallet or purse to get your ID out — the biometric scan that took place earlier verified your identity, and all you need to do is hand your boarding pass to the TSA agent and then you can continue on to the actual security screening.

CLEAR has also teamed up with the Lincoln Motor Company to offer new car owners a free membership. With the new partnership, which will officially launch in January, new Lincoln owners can get a six-month membership with CLEAR for free for themselves and a friend or family member. New Lincoln Black Label car owners will get a one-year membership.

CLEAR is a game-changer when it comes to security at the airport and other events around the country. Keep in mind that there are two preferred membership options through TPG: two months for free or a preferred annual rate of $149. A standard annual membership costs $179, yowever, if you’re a Delta Diamond Medallion member, you can get your CLEAR membership for free. If you have Delta Platinum, Gold or Silver Medallion status or if you’re a cardholder of the Gold Delta SkyMiles Credit Card, the Platinum Delta SkyMiles Credit Card, the Delta Reserve Credit Card or any of their business versions, you can get a discounted membership for $79 annually. If you’re a basic Delta SkyMiles member, you can get an annual rate of $99.
