The National Neopian Bank
Since any Neopoints you carry with you can be stolen by rabid Mutant Kadoaties or squandered away during a moment of weakness at Kauvara's Magic Shop, the National Neopian is here to keep those hard-earned Neopoints safe! You can deposit or withdraw whenever you wish! You can also earn interest on Neopoints you save, so saving is definitely a good thing.
Account Types and Interest Rates
Here's how The National Neopian Bank page looks:
First of all, you can see your account type, current balance, interest rate and yearly interest. Your account type determines how high your interest rate is. There are 16 different account types:
|Account Type||Min NP required||Interest Rate|
|Super Gold Plus||10,000||7%|
|Diamond Deposit Plus||250,000||9.5%|
|Diamond Deposit Gold||500,000||10%|
|Millionaire Double Platinum||2,000,000||11%|
In order to upgrade to better account types, you need to deposit enough NP. The second column of the table shows how much NP you need to have in the bank in order to upgrade to the corresponding account type. You have to choose the new account type manually (see the bottom part of the screenshot) - it won't upgrade automatically, no matter how much NP you deposit. Keep in mind that once you get a better account type, it will never go down even if you withdraw some NP. So, if you had 10,000,000 NP in the bank, upgraded to Ultimate Riches! and then withdrew some NP (or even all of it), you will still have 12.5% as your interest rate.
To calculate how much NP you can get daily, just divide your yearly interest by 365 and round up. To get your daily interest, just click the "Collect Interest (*** NP)" button. Keep in mind that those NP will be added to your current balance, and you'll need to withdraw them manually if you want to spend them.
Also, keep in mind that you should always collect your daily interest BEFORE you deposit or withdraw any NP - if you do otherwise, your daily interest button will disappear, and your daily interest will be wasted.
One more thing you need to know about your daily interest is that you have to collect it manually every day. If you skip a day, the daily interest for that day will just disappear. That was made by TNT because one of their mottoes is "You must work by yourself for all your NP": if you could gain your interest automatically, you could just deposit some NP, leave for several months or even years and then return to see that you have much more NP than you earned before leaving. That's unfair from TNT's point of view. So try to visit your bank every day when you visit Neopets!
Depositing and Withdrawing NP
You can deposit as many NP as you want (as long as you have that much), and you can do it as many times a day as you wish. When you withdraw NP, you can also withdraw as much as you want at a time (again, as long as you have that much in your bank account), but keep in mind that if you do it more than 15 times a day, you will get banned from withdrawing for that day. If that happens, just try again the next day.
For extra protection, you can add a PIN to your bank account here . If you do that, you'll have to enter your PIN number before pressing the "Withdraw" button. It may seem inconvenient, especially if you withdraw several times a day, but it's actually worth it, because if a stranger ever gets to your account, he/she won't be able to take your NP from the bank and steal/spend them if they don't know your PIN number. Of course, you must understand that you should never tell your PIN number to anyone.
Advantages and Disadvantages
Advantages of putting your NP into the bank:
- Your NP is safer there (if you use a PIN)
- Your NP won't get stolen by random events like the Tax Beast or Dr. Sloth
- You can earn some NP every day by just clicking a button
- You can prevent yourself from spending your NP if you're saving for something (by banning yourself from withdrawing on purpose - just withdraw 1 NP 15 times in a row every day, and you won't be able to take your NP from the bank and spend them on random things instead of the item of your dream, even if you're very impatient).
Disadvantages of putting your NP into the bank:
- You may need to have some NP on hand urgently, and going into the bank and withdrawing enough NP can take too much time in some cases (for example, you see a very rare item restocked for 10,000 NP in shop, but you only have 1,000 NP on hand - by the time you come back to the shop after rushing to the bank and withdrawing 9,000 NP more, the item will most likely be gone already)
- If you want those tax trophies (the Tax Beast or Dr. Sloth), you most likely will never get them if you keep almost all your NP in the bank.
The National Neopian Bank is a great thing everyone should use, because it helps you keep your NP safe and also earn more! So why not use it on a regular basis?
