People can get a free Club Penguin membership without downloading or contests if they are a point-earning member of Discover, Choice Privileges or SAS. Members of these groups can redeem points to get free Club Penguin memberships for six or 12 months. Players interested in Club Penguin can also set up an account and test out the game for free to see if they like it.
Club Penguin is an online multi-player game designed by Disney. Anyone can play the game for free, but only members are allowed to access certain games and features.
Club Penguin is played online, and in order to play, players and members do not have to download anything to their computers. As of September 2014, the price for membership is $7.95 per month, and members must use a credit card and authorize recurring payments when signing up their accounts.
By paying more money upfront, members can lower their monthly membership fees. For example, if a player pays for six or 12 months in advance, the monthly fee is only $6.65 or $5 respectively. Players can also save money on membership fees by purchasing Club Penguin gift certificates at grocery stores, big box stores or online.
