Benefits of signing up for a membership card with Animal Jam include a weekly gift, the ability to adopt and customize all virtual pets and access to all of the animals in Jamaa. Other benefits include access to all dens and accessories as well as invitations to member-only events.
If choosing a non-member account to Animal Jam, there are a number of features, including the chance to make new friends and play games on the website to earn gems. In addition, there is 24/7 monitoring and free advertising. Those with a membership card also get these benefits.

As of 2015, the cost of the Animal Jam membership card comes in at under $10 per month, with small discounts applied if the member buys the six-month or annual membership. These memberships are recurring, which means the individual's account is charged every month, six months or year, unless the person cancels the membership.
