Last month I flagged an offer for instant Hyatt Platinum status.

Loyalty Traveler points out that Hyatt elites (including Platinum members) get their first year membership free in the Clear airport security program.

I had thought the free Clear membership offer expired December 31, but I tested it and it appears to still be valid.

Now, I really don’t have any desire to submit to an iris scan for the chance at maybe going through security faster, and I’m fortunate that most of the airports I transit have elite security lines (for now, at least). So I’m going to pass on this.

But for folks willing to submit to their screening, and who prefer to save the cost of membership, just sign up for Hyatt elite status and then score your Clear membership.

    The best thing we can do for security is to shut down the TSA.
