When I flew last month, CLEAR passengers were escorted to the front of the pre-check line.

CLEAR is $179/year for pre-check

Global Entry is $100/5-6 years for both pre-check and global entry.

I get CLEAR for free via a credit card. I don’t think I could justify it otherwise. Often in Atlanta the Clear precheck line is slower than precheck without cleat. ( I got in line once behind a man with a really loud obnoxious suit. After seeing how long the line was I got out of the clear line and went to the regular precheck line. As I put my luggage through the scanner and I turned around and that man was still about 30 people away from the clear check. and I was going through the scanner)

I get Clear for free. I also have Global Entry. It definitely would not be worth buying Clear to me because it is not at my smaller regional airport. In the handful of locales I have used it, I have gone through the Clear line (no one in line) and then been walked to the front of the TSA Precheck line to cut in front of the Precheck crowd.
