Amex Business Platinum Card Gets $179 CLEAR Credit

While all the talk today has been about the Amex Platinum card, the Business Platinum also got an upgrade. With the fee going up to $695 on the consumer version of the card, Amex Business Platinum is now the most affordable option, and it also gets you the CLEAR benefit. This is billed as a $179 annual credit, but you can often find CLEAR memberships for cheaper, or even free through promotions. There’s currently a free 3 month offer if you don’t have a Platinum Card and we have seen a 12 month free membership in the past.

$179 CLEAR Credit

You can earn up to $179 in statement credits per calendar year when you use your Business Platinum Card to pay for your annual CLEAR membership. Enrollment in CLEAR is required. CLEAR memberships automatically renew each year unless canceled and CLEAR will charge the applicable membership fee to the Card CLEAR has on file.

Purchases by both the Basic Card Member and any Additional Card Members on the Card Account are eligible for statement credits. However, the total amount of statement credits for eligible purchases will not exceed $179 on the Card Account per calendar year.

Please allow up to 2-4 weeks after a qualifying CLEAR transaction is charged to your Card Account for the statement credit to be posted to the Account. American Express relies on accurate transaction data to identify eligible CLEAR purchases. If you do not see a credit for a qualifying purchase on your eligible Card after 4 weeks, please call the number on the back of your Card.

To be eligible for this benefit, your Card account must not be cancelled or past due at the time of statement credit fulfillment. If a charge for an eligible purchase is included in a Pay Over Time feature balance on your Card Account, the statement credit associated with that charge may not be applied to that Pay Over Time feature balance. Instead, the statement credit may be applied to your Pay In Full balance.

How CLEAR Works

By replacing your ID with your eyes and fingertips, CLEAR helps you get through security faster at major airports, sports stadiums and other venues across the US. At PARTICIPATING AIRPORTS, look for the CLEAR Lane at TSA security checkpoints and a CLEAR Ambassador will greet you. At the CLEAR pod, you’ll scan your boarding pass, confirm your identity with your fingerprints or irises, and then an agent will escort you straight to physical screening.

Those with TSA PreCheck can also enjoy CLEAR to speed even faster through the full airport security and screening process. If you are TSA PreCheck eligible for your flight, visit the CLEAR Lane and verify your identity. It recognizes TSA PreCheck eligibility on your boarding pass and escort you to the TSA PreCheck expedited lanes for physical screening. Check here before your next flight to see which CLEAR Lanes are situated next to TSA PreCheck.

CLEAR at sports and entertainment venues is included with a CLEAR Plus membership. Members can simply go to the CLEAR Lane at the entrance, tap their fingers, and be on their way to enjoy the big event. It’s the same fast and friendly service as the airport.
