"Club Penguin" players can redeem membership cards by navigating to ClubPenguin,com, clicking on the "Membership" tab, selecting "Activate Now," and then entering the 16-digit code to receive the membership extension.
The user is prompted to log in to his account before redeeming the code. If the player does not have an account, he may create one by following the prompts. Membership cards are available in many large chain stores in the U.S. in one-, three- and six-month increments.
Players can also buy membership time online with a credit card. Under the "Membership" heading, select "Purchase Online" to buy a one-, six- or 12-month membership. Users have the option of setting up a recurring subscription payment that renews periodically. Choosing a larger amount of time costs the user less per month than purchasing smaller amounts.
Membership gives players access to many features that are not available to users with free accounts. Members have unlimited access to the game as well as all of Club Penguin's apps, mini-games, clothing, pets and more. They may also build an unlimited number of igloos, dress up in endless clothing combinations and have first access to new content. Members may also participate in exclusive events and parties.
