CIW benefits

I know a few of us here have CIW Certifications, mainly through WGU. What I want to know is if there are any benefits of certification? Are there any members only forums, discounts, or anything beneficial to a CIW Cert holder? Do they even issue a card like CompTIA and formerly Microsoft?

Thanks in advance.

    I haven't found anything useful from being CIW certified other than the knowledge I gained while obtaining them. I went out on my own while doing WGU studies, and took the CIW Security Analyst exam, and scored a 100% on it. I about fell out of my chair.. I really enjoy their exams, and think CIW is cheaper, and better than Comptia exams even though they don't hold water.. Then A+, Network+ have become watered down, and can get you a $10.00-12.00 hour job.
