The NC Mall Guide
Neocash (NC) is a Neopian currency obtained with real-life money and used to purchase NC items from the NC Mall. NC can be purchased on your main and side accounts. All purchases made are through US dollars (USD) and non-refundable. Currently, NC does not support any other game site but Neopets (but previously it could also be used at Petpet Park and Monkey Quest, both of which are now defunct). Be sure to read the FAQ before buying.
Buy Neocash Online
There are different ways to buy Neocash. The first way is buying NC online, which will not give any additional NC bonus items with your NC purchases. On the NC Mall page, click the Buy NC button on the sidebar.
Then, select one of the four NC amounts. Before going to the "Pay" screen, you will be prompted to go through a login process (even if you are already logged in at the time).
As of October 2020, only PayPal is accepted for purchasing Neocash directly from the Neopets site. (On September 30, 2020, the credit card processor that handled credit card transactions for Neopets suddenly went out of business.)
Prior to October 2020, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover credit cards were accepted for Neocash purchases Neocash. Currency exchange rates apply if you are not in the United States; value added tax may apply depending on your country's laws.
Once your purchase is complete, you will receive a neomail notification from TNT confirming the order. Your available NC will always display alongside your username and Neopoints at the top of the page. Clicking on your NC amount will also direct you to the NC Mall.
In the drop down menu of the "NC Mall" link at the top of Neopets home page, you will see a Transaction Log link. The Transaction Log will display all of your purchased NC and NC items. Before you can view any information, you will prompted to login your username and password for security purposes. You can also access your Transaction Log when you click on "NC Account" from the yellow menu on the side panel in the NC Mall.
The Qasalan Expellbox game provides a lucky chance to win 150 NC - you can only play once every 8 hours. Occasionally, Neopets will give out free NC with site events such as: Neopets Birthday, Daily Dare, Altador Cup signups, and the Advent Calendar. In the past, there have been a few Neocash card giveaways hosted by Neopets and Petpet Park.
Prior to some point in 2019, Neocash used to expire. As of 2019, your Neocash balance will no longer expire and you can use it whenever you wish.
Prior to 2019, any unused NC (purchased or free) would expire 1 year from the purchase date and would no longer show in your balance of available NC. As a reminder, you would receive a Neomail notification 60 days before your NC was set to expire. After your NC expired, you would be given random NC Mall items of equal or greater value of the expired NC amount.
Introduced in 2007, Neocash (NC) Cards are another way to buy NC. They are available in select retail stores and do not require an age limit to purchase. Like gift cards, NC Cards need to be activated by a store clerk during checkout for them to work properly. As an additional perk, all NC cards award NC bonuses (NC wearable item and Basic Gift Boxes) when redeemed on Neopets. You will also be awarded a cheap/common Neopoint item after achieving a milestone in the number of cards redeemed on the same account. If you ever see "NickCash" mentioned, it's just another word meaning Neocash.
Over the years, Neopets has released different types of NC Cards that have discontinued, such as Nickelodeon Game Cards. Any Nickelodeon Game Card or Neocash Card can still be redeemed on Neopets, whether it is discontinued or not. You can view our Past NC Cards page for more information.
Neocash Cards are available in select stores in the United States, United Kingdom, and Mexico. Neocash cards are currently no longer available in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. You can check the Where to Buy page to find a store near you. You can also find them on sites such as eBay.com and Amazon.com. When purchasing from auctioning sites like those, the price may not be the same as you would see in stores. So, be careful and aware of the actual card prices, so you won't overpay.
NC eCards are the online version of NC Cards. They are purchased from store sites, and only send the NC Card's redemption PIN code to a valid email address provided during the checkout. You won't receive the physical card itself. This method is ideal if you plan on purchasing $10 (1000 NC) or more, since it saves you time from going to a retail store, and you can benefit from card bonuses. Plus, you can purchase them if the physical stores in your area do not stock the cards.
Below are some available sites to purchase NC Ecards online:
Disclaimer: We cannot control any issues that may happen from another site, so purchasing from the sites listed below is at your own risk!
- Scratch Monkeys - Scratchmonkeys.com is the most recommended and used site for purchasing NC Card redemption codes. They stock $15 and $25 Jumpstart Neocash Cards.
- Walmart - Walmart.com stocks $10 and $15 Neocash Cards. (US address required for purchase.)
Redeeming Neocash Cards
If you have a physical NC card, scratch off the metallic strip on the back of the NC Card to retrieve the redemption PIN code. Then, go to the NC Mall and click on the "Redeem Cards" button. You will be prompted to go through a login process (even if you are already logged in at the time).
Then, enter the NC Card redemption PIN code and select "Redeem Card". Your NC will be uploaded to your account, and your bonuses will be sent to your inventory. You can redeem more than one NC Card at this screen as well. TNT will also send you a neomail notification to confirm the NC transaction.
Note: If for any reason you didn't received your NC after redeeming a card or purchasing online through Neopets, you will need to submit a Ticket to Neopets for further assistance. If the ticket system isn't working properly, you can also contact Neopets through Facebook.
