Loyal User Perks
In 2008, Neopets announced in an issue of the Neopian Times that they were working on some goodies and perks for users with older accounts. Of course, it led to much speculation from everyone, predicting exclusive avatars, Battledome items, and site themes, among other things. Over time, we've seen many other goodies, such as an exclusive NC Mall shop and discounts in the Hidden Tower. You can keep reading to get more information on those goodies and more!
NC Mall Experienced User Shop
Opened on April 24, 2008, the Elite Boutique was the first real perk that experienced users were able to play with. Users on accounts that were 49 months or older (4+ years) were given access to this special NC Mall shop, where you can purchase items such as the Neopets Circle Background. Unlike other NC items, those from the Boutique (even free ones, such as the Elite NC Mall Third Birthday Goodie Bag) cannot be gifted/traded through the use of Gift Boxes. They're simply too elite!

Hidden Tower Discount
On the third Wednesday of every month, Fyora gives a 3% discount to individuals with accounts that are 60 months or older for all items in the Hidden Tower. We list the discounted prices on our Hidden Tower guide and on active Hidden Tower items in our Item Database.
Unfortunately, this discount does not stack with the 10% discount you might receive from a random event.
TNT have stated that if you have at least one side account old enough to enjoy this perk, you can take advantage of the Hidden Tower discount on that account. However, there are a couple conditions:
- You may only purchase a discounted item using one account.
- All funds must come from your main account.
As an experienced user, you are also able to mark increased numbers of games as being one of your favourites.
|Age At Or Over...||Number of Favourite Games|
|0 Months||12 Games|
|19 Months||15 Games|
|45 Months||18 Games|
|69 Months||21 Games|
|94 Months||24 Games|
|111 Months||27 Games|
|137 Months||30 Games|
|173 Months||34 Games|
|188 Months||37 Games|
|212 Months||40 Games|
|233 Months||43 Games|
|265 Months||46 Games|
User-To-User Pet Transfers
This perk was very warmly welcomed after it was first announced in the New Features on March 19th, 2010. For every two years that your account has aged, you are given an additional user-to-user pet transfer to use. (So if your account is 4 years old, you would have three transfers, and if it's 8 years old, you would have five transfers.)
This perk applies only to "exchanges" where you send a pet to someone and select one of theirs to receive in return (or vice versa). One-way transfers, where a pet is sent directly from one account to another without another pet in return, are unlimited for all users regardless of account age.
You can check the transfers that were accepted/rejected this month by visiting your transfer status page.
|Age At Or Over...||Number of Transfers|
|1 Month (0 Years)||1 Transfer|
|24 Months (2 Years)||2 Transfers|
|48 Months (4 Years)||3 Transfers|
|72 Months (6 Years)||4 Transfers|
|96 Months (8 Years)||5 Transfers|
|120 Months (10 Years)||6 Transfers|
|144 Months (12 Years)||7 Transfers|
|168 Months (14 Years)||8 Transfers|
|192 Months (16 Years)||9 Transfers|
|216 Months (18 Years)||10 Transfers|
|240 Months (20 Years)||11 Transfers|
|264 Months (22 Years)||12 Transfers|

Almost Abandoned Attic
Located in a mysterious house in Neovia, the Almost Abandoned Attic is only open to those with accounts over 3 years old. The Attic is essentially an Igloo Garage Sale on steroids, stocking items of rarity 80 to 99. This includes not only items that stock in the main shops, but also special items like map pieces and Petpetpets. Similar to the Kadoatery, the Attic restocks at a specific time interval. If it does not restock at the time when it is predicted to, you'll have to try again at the next interval. Be quick: valuable items move in literally seconds.
For those of you who wish to access the Almost Abandoned Attic from the Neovia map, you just need to click on the door highlighted below.
Extra Trade Lots
As of July 8th, 2010, users with accounts 36 months or older are able to have up to 15 trades up at a time at the Mystery Island Trading Post instead of 10.
Reading Books To Pets
For loyal users, there is a small chance a book won't disappear when you read it to your Neopet. This works for accounts 24 months and older.
Neomail Inbox Space
Loyal users will be able to use this perk to keep in touch with all the Neofriends they have accumulated through the years. Credit for the table data goes to czarnyolek13, sofia_amrr, kipsie, babyvendetta, black_skull725, and all the Neoboarders who helped to test.
