As you start contemplating more time at the airport next year, and the whole world does the same, it might also be a time that you think about how long you want to spend in the TSA Security line. While at some airports, TSA PreCheck is close to perfect, it’s certainly not perfect at all airports.

At airports with CLEAR, a third party company that essentially whisks you through security, I hear it can be quite a time saver. I’ll try it out myself now with this 6 month free deal posted earlier today by Map Happy (and I found at View from the Wing).

If you are in a cash crunch, you should avoid travel rewards credit cards until you are caught up. Here are our favorite credit cards for Intro 0% APR offers and for balance transfer offers

6 Months of CLEAR, Free

By simply using this link or promo code HOLIDAY6M, you’ll get the free 6 months. Better yet, it includes family!

Continue with Discounted Rates

If you are a Delta or United frequent flyer program member, you already get discounted CLEAR.

Delta Diamond members get CLEAR completely free, while all elite Medallion members and Delta credit card holders get a $109 rate and general members (everyone!) gets a $119 / year rate (excludes additional family members).

United Premier 1K members, likewise, get CLEAR completely free, while all MileagePlus elite members and United credit card holders get a $109 rate and general members (everyone!) gets a $119 / year rate (excludes additional family members).

Stack with the $100 Amex Green credit

And don’t forget, American Express Green Card holders (you can use my referral link for a 45,000 point offer if you don’t already have the card – just click on “View all cards with a referral offer” after clicking) get a $100 annual credit to CLEAR. So even a general program member of Delta or United would pay just $9 after the annual credit.

New to all of this? My “introduction to miles and points” book, MilesTalk: Live Your Wildest Travel Dreams Using Miles and Points is available on Amazon and at major booksellers.

I got "in the game" in 2003 and since then I've collected literally millions and millions of frequent flyer miles and hotel points. I've flown around the world in first class seats that would cost $29,000 using frequent flyer miles and a few bucks in tax. And I've stayed in some of the finest hotels - all for free! A few years ago I realized many of my friends actually thought I was paying for these!! So I started sharing my tips. It's long been a passion, but when I hosted a session on Miles and Points at this year's South by Southwest festival, my love of the game intensified and this blog was born.
