If you were to have taken advantage of every single offer above, you would have received a minimum of $2,387.95 worth of free stuff and experiences. Of course you would have had to want all those giveaways and been the first to apply for them each time. So no one did that. But we did have some particularly active members who saved hundreds of dollars.

So, yes, an Urban Milwaukee membership can be a very good deal.

And we are working hard to make 2019 even bigger and better by nearly doubling the amount of offers and giveaways and expanding the range of our deals. And all that will still come for just $9/month, or $99 per year. Plus you help support a publication you enjoy reading.

For the entire list of our many membership perks, visit our membership welcome page.

It’s a great deal. And a great way to support local journalism.
