Membership Benefits

Working Advantage = Over 60,000  Benefits!

​To meet the changing needs of CMU Alumni, the Gold Membership program has partnered with Working Advantage to provide exclusive savings on health and wellness products, food and wine delivery, and much more.

We realize that work-life balance and general well-being can be just as important to you as health and financial wellness. So, the time you spend outside of the workplace is just as important to us as the work you contribute. With travel concerns on the rise just in time for vacation season, we understand you may be shifting your plans to later in the year or looking to make the most of your time at home.

That's why we’ve partnered with Working Advantage to provide you access to 60,000 benefits and this exclusive savings platform.

  • Sam’s Club Membership discounts
