As of 2015, on animaljam.com/membership, customers can purchase a one month membership for $6.95, a six month membership for $29.95, or a year long membership for $57.95. Purchasing a year long membership saves 30% and comes with 25,000 instant bonus gems.
After selecting which membership option the customer would like to purchase, he must log in with an Animal Jam account (or create a new account) and then enter his billing information. Membership has many perks; members have access to adoption and customization for all virtual pets, as well as access to all accessories and dens. The website also mentions that members have access to exclusive member-only parties and adventures. An additional perk of signing up for membership is the instant gem bonus, and longer memberships come with up to 60 in-game diamonds as well.
While signing up for membership on the Animal Jam website is the most straightforward method of joining, customers can also purchase gift cards for temporary membership at various online vendors as well as at Walmart. The gift cards offer varying lengths of memberships that are not available directly from Animal Jam. One final option available on animaljam.com is purchasing a gift certificate that can be sent electronically to friends or family.
