Hertz Partners With CLEAR – Get Up To 4 Months For Free (Plus Another 4 Months)

The Offer

Direct link to offer

  • Hertz & CLEAR have announced a new partnership. As part of the partnership Hertz rewards members will receive free membership. The membership you receive will vary based on your Hertz elite status:
    • Hertz Platinum = 6 months of CLEAR
    • Hertz President’s Circle = 4 months of CLEAR
    • Hertz Five Star = 2 months of CLEAR
    • Hertz Gold = 1 month of CLEAR

Our Verdict

It looks like Hertz will also be using the CLEAR technology to make it possible to scan your face to check out using the fast lane.

The nice thing about the free CLEAR membership is that it seems to work even if you’ve had a free membership elsewhere before. This means you should do the TripIt deal for four months free first, then this Hertz deal. It looks like the Hertz deals also just adds the additional months onto your current membership so that’s nice.

Wow, i didn’t know about the TripIt deal. So 8 free months. I have no travel plans though for another month or so. Do we know when either of these deals will expire?

The tripit deal has been around for like two years, always available.

Can’t wait for “Hertz suffers data breach, millions of facial profile lost”

Which is exactly why I say F–k No to deals like this.

why are you worried about your facial profile being released?
Genuinely curious why people care

Your facial profile becomes a part of your credential that allows you access to certain services (just like Clear). A compromised credential might enable other people to pose as you and use those services.

The TripIt will have to be cancelled after 4 months or you’ll get charged. DoC, do you mean that the hertz will continue it without getting charged?

I currently have a complementary CLEAR membership and tried linking the Hertz offer to it. Expiration date of my membership was not extended, at least not immediately.

Same here. I’m thinking you need to wait torward the tail end of Tripit trial to end before linking the Hertz to get additional 4 months.

Right now, the only place to sign up for this CLEAR feature is at ATL. Doesn’t help where CLEAR isn’t even available yet at the airport, let alone Hertz.

I linked accounts and saw no change in my expiration date (still next January from a prior 4 months free offer). Is the update supposed to be instant?

Platinum? I thought the highest level is Presidents Circle.. first time to learn they have a Platinum level..

Hertz Platinum is a status that is either gifted to C-Suite Execs who do business with Hertz, or really high spenders.

What happens to paid accounts? Free four months? Or nothing?

I received the following error message: To use Hertz Fast Lane, please complete at least one rental. [NEX267]
We were unable to link your Hertz Gold Plus Rewards® account with your CLEAR account. Hertz Fast Lane powered by CLEAR is available to Gold Plus Rewards members based in the U.S. who’ve completed at least one rental. Our records indicate you haven’t completed a rental since becoming a Gold Plus Rewards member. Please try linking your accounts after you complete your rental. Thank you.

I am at President’s Circle

Reminder when inputting a credit card, may want to use Virtual #’s or ShopSafe from BofA. After the initial auth you can close that credit line to ensure Clear doesn’t charge you after the 4 month free trial. Love doing this as a backup in case I don’t cancel in time or the company tries to charge me anyway.

Called in and got my 4 months of TripIt pro membership. Will try to add Hertz Prez Circle months in the spring, but sounds like we actually need to complete a Hertz rental first. Thanks DoC!

Was anyone ever actually able to stack trials?

I was just trying to sign up for a new account with the trial this morning at SFO. No dice. Once fingerprints were scanned, the system recognize that I was a former member. New enrollment is not possible per the lady helping me. System did offer me to pay $99 per year.

I was able to do the 6 month trial with CLEARFD9223 and then do the Hertz trial discussed above just after the first six month trial expired. There is a business insider two month trial with “INSIDER.” I may try it once the Hertz trial expires. I am curious whether anyone was able to do the Tripit trial for 4 months and then the 6 month trial with CLEARFD9223?
