Getting Started, and Important Info
How to sign up
There are two ways to sign up. The first is to try visiting the Sign-Up Page. Neopets doesn't always allow people to simply sign up, but you can give it a shot.
The second option, and is guaranteed to be available is to get a premium referral. This comes from one of your friends, or a fellow Neopian and is delivered in the form of a Neomail. Feel free to neomail me, jdlady51 here for a referral. I'm always happy to help, and online every day!
The cost, and how to pay
You can either pay monthly, this costs US$7.99, or yearly for US$69.95. Paying yearly definately saves you money! Also check during December, Neopets often run a holiday special for just $49.95. They don't always do this, but will always renew at this price if you have already signed up. Signing up on this special compared to paying monthly can save you US$45 (almost half price!!), which at the moment is around EUR35, GBP30, and AUD50
You can pay with a credit card (Mastercard, Visa, Amex or Discover), or through Paypal. If you are a US resident you are also able to make an electronic funds transfer
After you have signed up
After you have signed up you get a Neomail welcoming you to Premium and giving you a free 15 day trial, as well as a set amount of Neopoints!
The Neopoint rewards;
- Monthly Web Pack:
- 1,000 neopoints for starting the 15 day trial
- 1,000 neopoints for every month of continued service (up to 12 months)
- Yearly Web Pack:

- 7,500 neopoints for keeping premium after the trial
- Monthly Dial-Up:

Other Important Stuff
When your account gets frozen you will not get a refund and your premium service is not automatically cancelled. If you want to stop paying for the premium on your frozen account, you must cancel premium yourself (see the Cancelling Premium section). If you feel you are unfairly frozen, you can use this form to try and get your account back.
Some people are interested in knowing who referred them to premium. Sometimes because they were sent and invitation against their will, or sometimes because they are just curious who got their referral reward and they forgot. By going to this page you can see the invitation you were sent when you were referred.
The SSW searches the entire marketplace for items rather than just a section of it. This makes it much easier when searching for items, or pricing your shop. It also makes it great for getting snipes.
You will have access to your very own neopets email, firstname.lastname@example.org. Neopets use this email to tell you about the Something Has Happened events, and to deliver your weekly scratchcard to you.
Something Has Happened events
You can receive special Premium SHH once a day. You will be sent an email to your Neopets email account. You can get one SSH e-mail every 24 hours, if 24 hours have passed and you have not yet received one, you can trigger the event by clicking on 'Home' in the quicklinks of your portal until you receive the e-mail.
- 1. You can win the Lottery and get a small amount of neopoints. Amount of neopoints: between 500 and 1000.
- 2. You can win the Lottery and get a random item. The amount of neopoints you get from this SHH can be larger if you ‘picked the bonus ball’. Amount of neopoints without bonus ball: between 500 and 1000. Amount of neopoints with the bonus ball: between 1000 and 1500.
- 3. You can find a rare item.
- 4. You can find a Hidden Gem, or a cheat for one of the Neopets games. Hidden Gems are currently glitched, if you receive one of these the neomail wont actually contain a hidden gem.
Every time you refer someone and they sign up they will go towards your referrals. You will win prizes for the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 10th, 15th, and 20th person who goes on past their 15 day free trial. Go to the Premium Refferrals page to see what you can win. If you need a premium referral feel free to neomail me, intiye here.
When you are a neopets premium member you will have access to three extra neoboards (Help and Newbies, Main Hall and Spotlights and Games). After you have been a premium member for three months you will gain access to a fourth neoboard (Charter Members). Exceptions being accounts manually activated to premium by TNT, they have the Charter board right away.
