New Bank Avatar
  • Posted by Dave
  • Posted on August 29, 2018, 8:36 am NST

A new avatar has appeared in Neopia! (TNT seems to be making good on their promise to begin rolling out a number of non-stamp avatars.)

Update: The solution for this avatar is to deposit any amount of Neopoints into your bank account on your active Neopet's birthday. You can create a new Neopet to qualify for this if your current Neopets are not the right age. You can no longer seem to create a new Neopet to satisfy the requirements for this avatar. The Neopet must be at least 1 year old.

Unlike previous avatars, you get the notification for this through Neomail after unlocking it, rather than on the page:

Dear [your name],

You are now eligible to use 'Good Day at the Bank' as an avatar on the Neoboards.

Yours sincerely,
The Neopets Team

They sure look "cheap", graphics-wise, lol.
But hey, an av is an av I suppose!

mortychichi, 08/29/2018, 8:44 am NST
Looks like every day is Artist's Day Off now

cloonshannagh, 08/29/2018, 9:01 am NST
I think it is cute. Very bank-like.

tomatereloco, 08/29/2018, 9:05 am NST
I like that they are releasing new avatars, but is it necessary to release one per week? It sort of kills the purpose in my opinion

herdy - JN Staff, 08/29/2018, 9:06 am NST
In the old days a new one a week was fairly standard — sometimes more!

purplebin, 08/29/2018, 9:14 am NST
I've already collected my interest today.

biediep, 08/29/2018, 9:17 am NST
Some people were saying they got it for depositing 1m into their bank account, but others have tried this literally 100-300 times with no avatar and then another person said they don't even have 1m but they have the av, so I'm guessing it's just random when depositing (any amount of) NPs?

purplebin, 08/29/2018, 9:18 am NST
I just deposited 1 mil, and withdrew 1 mil, and nothing happened.

kingloui17, 08/29/2018, 9:46 am NST
Gross, this looks like Marapet's graphic-style avatars.

1jediboy, 08/29/2018, 10:08 am NST
EEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!! I’m excited for this one!

jawsch, 08/29/2018, 10:41 am NST
Has to be your active pet's birthday; deposit any amount of np

will - JN Staff, 08/29/2018, 10:44 am NST
I really wish they would figure out how to stop it with the blurry text already...

yellowbluerainbow, 08/29/2018, 10:48 am NST
Guess I'm waiting til January unless I want to make a 5th pet. My youngest had her birthday a month ago lol.

elepop, 08/29/2018, 10:58 am NST
@will - I agree about the blurry text!! Those are pixel fonts they are using, we are supposed to see the pixels in sharp quality LMAO

dustin, 08/29/2018, 11:23 am NST
New avatars are cool and all, but they're all so ugly

vraptor140, 08/29/2018, 11:42 am NST
My pet's birthday was last week, great timing.

1jediboy, 08/29/2018, 12:03 pm NST
Bank: Happy Birthday! Here’s your avatar, Little Timmy!
Little Timmy: Buh... I wann-ed a choo-choo.

cloonshannagh, 08/29/2018, 12:26 pm NST
Willow has a birthday on the 30th! *lol* And she will be glad to be responsible for an avatar.

dr_tomoe, 08/29/2018, 12:55 pm NST
One of my pets has their birthday on Saturday.

I can wait.

airylouise, 08/29/2018, 1:03 pm NST
why is the font work so terrible on all of these new avatars haha

skiasma, 08/29/2018, 1:04 pm NST
I have a 09/09/09 draik (yay insomnia), so soon and hopefully I won't forget.

sakeru187, 08/29/2018, 1:20 pm NST
And in 7 days be ready for a hoard of pets to be pounded I bet :/ people are going to make random pets to get the avie then pound them I'm guessing when they are old enough.

1jediboy, 08/29/2018, 1:54 pm NST
^That is DISGUSTING!!!
Bringing new life just to get an economic perk just to dump it into the pound! They might be virtual, but they still have FEELINGS!

inkpot, 08/29/2018, 2:00 pm NST
the animation is cute but like airylouise said, the font is terrible...

ahh, anyway, it's probably the best avatar released since that cannonball one from the plot.

josh_m, 08/29/2018, 2:15 pm NST
I'll get my avatar on draik day since I have a 999 draik.

cat, 08/29/2018, 2:29 pm NST
Oh cool, a new avatar.
Also I got a Gold Frogarott for collecting Trudy's Surprise for 7 days in a row.

josie, 08/29/2018, 2:51 pm NST
Oh, that's funny It will be a while before I'll get it, since none of my pets have a birthday coming up anytime soon.

topaz644, 08/29/2018, 3:00 pm NST
A pet birthday for a bank avatar. huh?

One has nothing to do with the other so can we use this to help with the new Trash avie? It could be any thing, like go to the dump after your pet has eaten a carrot *lol*

1jediboy, 08/29/2018, 3:21 pm NST
^*takes what you said and replaces one word*
Go to the dump after your pet has eaten a taco. 🌮

topaz644, 08/29/2018, 3:29 pm NST
Go to the dump after your pet has refused a Chocolate Taco

1jediboy, 08/29/2018, 3:49 pm NST
Ha ha ha.

tattooedmomma, 08/29/2018, 4:18 pm NST
I have to wait till dec to get this one ………..and I wait...……..

pikasuno, 08/29/2018, 4:36 pm NST
I feel unusually lucky in that one of my pets has their birthday tomorrow

boblol2, 08/29/2018, 4:41 pm NST
Go to the dump after you whisper sweet nothings into the tumaculus's ear

1jediboy, 08/29/2018, 4:51 pm NST
Go to the dump after declining a Fountain Faerie Quest. 😬

1jediboy, 08/29/2018, 4:52 pm NST
(Sweet nothings! 😂

moonlightwitch, 08/29/2018, 5:29 pm NST
Go To The Dump After Your Pet Scares You?

moonlightwitch, 08/29/2018, 5:32 pm NST
@tattooedmomma, me too 😑

1jediboy, 08/29/2018, 6:04 pm NST
^AAAAAAAAUUUUUUU!!!! I just looked at my pet's birthdays and they're ALL May and June! That JUST passes!!! TAT

pyromaniac, 08/29/2018, 6:57 pm NST
My UC faerie Pteri is Sept 1 so I won't have to wait very long. I'll set a reminder in my phone XD

josie, 08/29/2018, 8:05 pm NST
I have to wait until December too. Hopefully I haven't forgotten about the avatar by then

Maybe they'll post a hint for the rubbish dump avatar soon too, as they said they would.

cosmological, 08/29/2018, 10:08 pm NST
this avatar would look fine to me if the text wasn't blurry. whoever is in charge of these avatars needs to learn how to use pixel fonts properly lol

daweaselyo, 08/29/2018, 11:30 pm NST
Looks like they took away the ability to get this avvie with creating a new pet. Did not work for me, and others said same thing.

yekith, 08/30/2018, 12:11 am NST
I was happy that one of my pets' (one that has always been on this account, just in case, for theories!) BD is today. But I just tried and no avie.

pikasuno, 08/30/2018, 2:15 am NST
I knew my luck was too good to be true, having a pets birthday so close to occurring after the release of the avatar It's no longer being awarded in that way

It's frustrating when they release avatars through an unintentional way and then change it as there are then fewer people interested in finding the actual solution (as they already received it the unintended way).

mlooshka, 08/30/2018, 4:28 am NST
Seriously, TNT? My pet's birthday was *two days ago*. Guess I'm waiting a year for this one...

mandypandy667, 08/30/2018, 4:31 am NST
My pets birthday is in a week, was excited I wouldn't have to wait long and now it's not working Sigh

moonlightwitch, 08/30/2018, 4:42 am NST
Looking like the day only release now for new avie

nimaessa, 08/30/2018, 4:47 am NST
I get Trudys Tales of Nightly Neopian Walks on 7th day from Trudy's Surprise. He's a Pastel Ixi!

nimaessa, 08/30/2018, 4:56 am NST
My friend get Gold Sushi. He can't speak english...

shimmeringemerald, 08/30/2018, 5:43 am NST
I tried to get the av this morning with one of my pets, whose birthday is today. I tried depositing a random amount, and then 1M, and it didn't work.

hathor, 08/30/2018, 6:39 am NST
@josie I put in a reminder in my calendar so I remember!

purplebin, 08/30/2018, 7:07 am NST
My niece has a birthday pet today, made it active, and deposited NP, and also didn't get the avatar.

sentehisshou, 08/30/2018, 7:07 am NST
the avatar isn't working today. i got it on a side account yesterday by depositing 1 np on my active pet's birthday (i happened to have a pet whose bday it was, luckyy) - but today i made my new labrat on my main and deposited nps and got nothing. i dunno if it's broken or if it WAS broken yesterday or if they changed how you get it or if you can only get it on august 29th...?? super weird.

cloonshannagh, 08/30/2018, 7:52 am NST
Working again! Warning !!! The teller lines at the bank are looong. But everyone is happy. *wades through balloons and cake stations* Lots of young (and senior) pets making their first 1np deposit. A good way to get new depositors, make non active pets familiar with services, and encourage saving. The manager is shaking every hand!

raccoon353, 08/30/2018, 8:14 am NST
Just got the avatar using a newly created pet.
Maybe there is a time element?

joe, 08/30/2018, 8:28 am NST
During bankers hours maybe?

sentehisshou, 08/30/2018, 9:19 am NST
tried again with the pet i made today and it worked - maybe it IS during banker's hours. that'd be cute

sakeru187, 08/30/2018, 9:55 am NST
Good you can't create pets anymore to just discard afterward. Thanks for stopping that TNT. My next pet's birthday is Sept. 28th so not too long to wait. Everyone else is in December, march or April pretty much XD

inkpot, 08/30/2018, 10:10 am NST
glad they put a year limit on the pets.

lexiana, 08/30/2018, 10:24 am NST
I was due for a new labrat, so I created one at approx. 10:20 am NST on 8/30 and deposited 500NP, and it worked. (I couldn't find a new lupe to zap in the pound, anyways!)

zen, 08/30/2018, 10:27 am NST
I'm also glad they put the year old requirement on the pets for this avvie. If anything, it seems like an incredible waste of server space to have possibly hundreds of new pets created and then immediately pounded for an avatar.

zen, 08/30/2018, 10:30 am NST
I mean, at least other avatar pets are passed around and taken care of in order to get lots of people the avatar at some point or another.

ambernicolebeach1, 08/30/2018, 10:33 am NST
Figured they would, I shouldve done it yesterday lol.. I can't imagine how many more are in the pound.

ambernicolebeach1, 08/30/2018, 10:33 am NST
Figured they would, I shouldve done it yesterday lol.. I can't imagine how many more are in the pound.

aperkins2189, 08/30/2018, 1:08 pm NST
Toooo late. I made SirEggWellington. Anyone selling a baby PB?

smallcat910, 08/30/2018, 1:30 pm NST
Everyone of my pets birthdays are in March and April. Gonna be a long wait lol

yekith, 08/30/2018, 1:56 pm NST
Yayy, it worked now finally! Gonna see what the next BD is on my sides.

catastrophe, 08/30/2018, 1:58 pm NST
My Lupe has a birthday in November, otherwise all the rest are May babies. I've still got a few months to wait, but I'm looking forward to it!

sakeru187, 08/30/2018, 2:06 pm NST
Speaking of trading/passing pets around for avies. Maybe you can do it for this too?

timesamyth, 08/30/2018, 3:08 pm NST
Pet birthdays: March,April, April, April, July 30....of course

judyith, 08/30/2018, 4:26 pm NST
You can still get it creating a new pet... at least I was able to

moonlightwitch, 08/30/2018, 6:32 pm NST
They removed the avatar count on ULs for the CCon Avvie. I'm happy they tried to change it to 1 year

biediep, 08/31/2018, 3:59 am NST
Wish I had known it was for your pet's birthday before I created a new pet xD My pet's birthday is tomorrow but now instead I'm stuck with this new pet for a week, lol.

moonfighter2185, 09/1/2018, 6:02 am NST
I made a new pet yesterday 8/31 and got the avatar last night when depositing my Food Club winnings, so the new pet thing should work. Maybe the pet has to be more than 0 hours old?

hprox, 09/1/2018, 10:57 am NST
People assumed you couldn't create a pet anymore for it when the avatar "stopped working" on the first day. I think it's more likely that the avatar is time restricted, like you have to do it before 8pm or something. I've also known two other people who have said they made a new pet and got the avatar still.

kodiakbermun, 09/4/2018, 5:03 pm NST
I just created a Lupe and, just out of curiosity, deposited some NP in my bank, and was immediately awarded the avatar. He was probably only five minutes old when I made the deposit, so it seems that creating a new pet still works to get the avatar.

josie, 09/5/2018, 8:49 pm NST
Oh my, it's a stunning avatar now that they changed the text and everything else! I especially love how the Skeith moves his fingers and blinks

mamsmelk_jr, 09/18/2018, 2:55 pm NST
Darn, I wrote down the date my pet had his birthday,but I miscounted missed it by a day.
