Our goal is to make WCPO Insider like a magic passport.

We want to give you information, access and discounts so you can be in the know and enjoy the best of what the Cincinnati area has to offer.

That’s why we launched Insider Rewards nearly a year ago. Since then, we have listened to feedback from our Insiders and have continued to refine and improve the rewards we offer.

From free movie tickets to food discounts to fitness deals, we have a variety of rewards.

I know I personally have taken advantage of enough rewards that my Insider membership has easily paid for itself twice over.

“Our goal is to offer Insiders unique offers and access that you can’t find anywhere else,” said Kenya Brock, director of partner development. “We’re looking to partner with the best businesses in Cincinnati and are always open to recommendations.”

Kenya and partnership coordinator Sara Habedank are constantly talking to the coolest local businesses.

Last week, we offered tickets to a free advance screening of "Captain America: Civil War" AND a special Insider-only theater showing of "Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back."

Some of our rewards are sweepstakes where only a few Insiders are winners. For example, right now we have a sweepstakes with the Buckeye BBQ Fest where two Insiders can win more than $200 in gift cards and coupons.

Other media in town offer these sorts of opportunities to win.

But most of our rewards are available to all Insiders, not just a small number of winners.

We are offering Insiders free tickets and free drink tickets to the AVP Cincinnati Open volleyball tournament. You can also buy two tickets and get two free for the Buckeye BBQ Fest.

If you are like me and you like to eat, you can get a free doughnut once a month from Paradise Donuts in Hebron. Or you can get a frozen yogurt for half off when you buy one at regular price at Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt in Mason.

Looking for something for the whole family? Insiders can get two free kids games of miniature golf or laser tag with an adult purchase.

We keep rolling out new deals each week.

You can even submit your own idea for an Insider Reward.

We hope these rewards help WCPO Insiders make the most of our city.
