Just in Time for Summer:  New Employee Discount Available

Posted Jun. 4, 2012

What are your plans for rest and relaxation this summer? Whether it’s a trip to the beach or a “staycation,” be sure and check out the activities available through a new employee discount program.

Kent State University has joined the Best Benefits Club (BBC), which offers discounts on hundreds of recreational activities and locations in Ohio and throughout the United States. Kent State faculty and staff can take advantage of the BBC offerings and save money throughout the year on everyday needs and family fun.

Examples of discount prices for destinations and activities include: Cedar Point, Kings Island, Great Wolf Lodge, the Cleveland, Columbus and Akron zoos, Regal, Cinemark and AMC theatres, Playhouse Square, Cleveland Indians games and much more.

BBC is easy to use. Just visit and use kent410 for the password. Once logged in, you can search for a discount by activity or location, and follow the instructions to access the discount or purchase tickets. For questions about the BBC program, contact BBC at 330-273-5756. 

In addition to the BBC program, there are other discounts available to Kent State employees, ranging from airport parking and wireless phone service to travel and automotive needs. Information is available here.

Throughout the summer, let us know what discounts you used and how you enjoyed your outing. Just send an email to
