Miles to Memories' Deal Guru Danny has spotted a great deal that will appeal to many people. United Airlines offers a 2-month free trial to CLEAR, and $100 in United Travel Bank Money to the first 10,000 Mileage Plus Members who sign up through United MileagePlus. This should be combined with the rebate on the Amex Platinum/Business Platinum card or the Amex Offer. CLEAR is free and you don't even need to pay anything to receive the $100 part within 72 hours of signing up for the trial. This is a great deal.
United offers a 2-month free trial membership to CLEAR, and $100 in United TravelBank cash for the first 10,000 Mileage Plus members that sign up before September 9, 2021.

This offer is valid for the first 10,000 MileagePlus Members to purchase CLEAR subscriptions.
Offer ends at 11:59 CST on September 9, 2021 or when all 10,000 offers have been claimed.
To qualify, members must sign up for CLEAR via the offer landing page.
TravelBank customers will receive an email confirmation within 72 hours after enrolling in CLEAR.
TravelBank credit will remain valid for nine months after it is deposited in members' accounts.
TravelBank credit will be deposited by or before September 15, 2021.
As I have read the terms, you will only get $100 in United TravelBank money in 72 hours after enrolling in CLEAR. I don't think you need to keep the CLEAR account beyond the 2-month trial to receive the $100. This is an incredible deal by itself, as it almost seems like a $100 United funny money-maker.
You should be able sign up with this offer if you have an Amex Platinum or other card that has the Amex Offer For CLEAR. Stephen shared his experiences with CLEAR by writing: Here's How Quick and Easy It Is to Set up CLEAR.
I personally have resisted signing up for CLEAR or PreCheck. Goodness knows that I use enough Google services to have virtually no expectation of privacy. However, I have been extremely resistant to any biometrics-based identification programs. These include the fingerprint reader on my smartphone and those that require scanning of biometric information. As part of routine immigration policies, I have been fingerprinted while entering a number countries. I think I should stop being so ridiculous about not providing biometric information to CLEAR, Global Entry and Google. Is $100 the price that I've been waiting to pay in order to give up my biometrics for? It could be. Maybe it will work out for me once in a while. We'll see.
Remember that TravelBank cash is only available for 9 months so that you can use it to purchase a flight before May.
