A new Amex Offer showed up today on my wife’s Gold card good for 100% back on CLEAR, up to $179 back (enrollment required). That was a surprising offer to see given that Amex just made the same type of CLEAR reimbursement one of the new benefits of the Platinum cards. While the offer on the Gold card is only valid for a few months, I was still surprised to see this benefit completely covered with the Gold card also via Amex Offer.
- A new Amex Offer is out for CLEAR that’s good for 100% back on a single purchase up to $179 back. Enrollment required.
- Expires 10/30/21
- Valid online only at Clearme.com
- Not valid for e-gift card purchases
- Subscription to CLEAR will be set to auto-renew
Again, I was surprised to see this show up on a Gold card after the recent fee increase on the personal Platinum with this CLEAR benefit being one of the new additions on that card. It feels like this offer dilutes the value of the Platinum card benefit.
For those who can use this offer, it’s potentially a great benefit. You’ll get 100% back on a single purchase up to $179. As many have pointed out, those clicking through their airline program accounts can often get a discounted price of $109-119 for the first member and $50-$60 for an additional family member meaning that this offer could 100% cover the CLEAR membership cost for 2 people. Update: Note that reader ceejayoz reports in the comments that the charges for 2 memberships post separately, so this Amex Offer may not cover the second person after all.
That’s an excellent deal for those looking for CLEAR membership.
