Okay so, a few weeks back Fantage had the “Premium Membership week” which I’m sure every non-mem (like me) was super excited for. It’s nice of Fantage to let everyone experience the royalty of being a Premium member (even if it is one or twice a year😂).
Premium members have loads of benefits that non-members don’t get to experience, as I’m sure you know. But when Premium membership week does come by, sometimes people forget the smaller advantages members have like access to winning more medals, free items etc. In this post, I’m going to tell you about the less obvious advantages of Membership week that you can use the next time it rolls around.
1. Bonus Level free items
Since becoming a premium member boosts your levels by a ton, I checked out the Bonus Level medal stand next to the Board shop and the Costume shop in Uptown.
After temporarily becoming a member, I was on level 500+ because of which I got a free item that I would have to wait for ages and play tons of games for if I wanted it as a non-mem.
The sack board
Guess who was a Top 50 trendsetter during PM week?!?!??! Yeah baby, MEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If you’re a non-member, you can’t see your place on the list unless you’re a member. I don’t think non-members can even be on the list.
3. Use up all your starred gems
Non-members can’t use their gems unless their e-coined (with the exception of the sapphire), so playing all the Games in the Enchanted Grotto is pretty much useless if you get anything other than a sapphire. You can use up all the starred gems as a member, and then when the PM week ends, just sell your member items that can no longer be used at Lucky Bob’s!
I’m not sure if this is a glitch or not because sometimes this happens and other times it doesn’t, but Orion doesn’t even let me cash in my starred sapphires anymore!
4. Double the stars for playing games
Just in case you didn’t know, while you’re a premium member you can play games and get double the stars! This is pretty helpful for games like Fish Fish, Bricks Breaking and Pearly Pop where it’s really easy to get over 100 stars. 100 x 2 = 200. 200 stars for playing a fun and easy game, that sounds pretty good to me. You can also play Treasure Hunters while getting 100 stars for each level. If you play it enough, your Treasure Hunters level bar will start filling up, and you can get items for reaching a new level!
5. Seashell Collecting!
While being a member, you can actually buy the member Seashell collecting costume for stars, collect your seashells and get free items! If you did this while being a non-member, you’d have to pay 2,500 in ecoins, which isn’t worth it, cause it takes a long time to earn those ecoins without buying them.
I actually started using Fantage again on the 2nd last day of PM week, so I didn’t have the chance to collect all the free items you can get by collecting shells. Here are the items I collected:
There are 7 items you can get from collecting seashells, but it does take quite some time as some shells are found rarely. Note that these items can be worn even after you’re not a member anymore and that the shell bracelet is available for non-members if they buy the starred seashell costume for non-members as well.
I hope this post can help you the next time PM week comes back, or if you’re already a member and you haven’t tried any of these yet. Feel free to comment any other things I might have missed out on 🙂 Thank you for reading! ❤
