The Premier Club is an enhanced membership subscription available roughly during December–January, from 2012 onwards. Benefits include discounts from Solomon's General Store, and promotional pets and cosmetic items. The club comes in three tiers: Bronze, Silver and Gold. This can be bought with cash, or redeemed in game using 5, 10, and 20 bonds respectively.

Gold Premier Club members can access the Premier Club Vault once a month to gain some rewards, including experience lamps, stars, and skilling packs.

Value analysis[edit | edit source]

Premier Club 2014[edit | edit source]

If you were to add up the items that can be purchased separately (Membership, Spins/Treasure Hunter keys, Loyalty points):

  • The Bronze premier club is worth $23.18USD + Cosmetics
  • The Silver premier club is worth $88.52USD (approx.) + Cosmetics & other benefits
  • The Gold premier club is worth $180.12USD (approx.) + Cosmetics & other benefits

1 RuneCoin is worth roughly 387 loyalty points. The value of Membership & SOF spins remained the same but the value from RuneCoins to Loyalty points has reduced.

Jagex valued the Bloodpouncer pet as $35USD. This has not been included in the calculation.

Premier Club 2013[edit | edit source]

If you were to add up the items that can be purchased separately (Membership, Spins & RuneCoins):

  • The Bronze premier club is worth $21.95USD + Cosmetics
  • The Silver premier club is worth $97.35USD (approx.) + Cosmetics & other benefits
  • The Gold premier club is worth $212.60USD (approx.) + Cosmetics & other benefits

Controversy[edit | edit source]

Some controversies arose when the premier club was announced:

  • According to some players, they would have to pay more money for membership once the premier club membership time ran out, even if they were paying less before (grandfathered in before Jagex increased the price from $5.00 USD to $5.95 USD). This angered many players who were paying only $5.00 a month, since they thought they would be paying the lower price once their premier club ran out. In the Premier Club FAQ thread on the forums Jagex has clarified that the price you pay will not change, you will be able to continue with the same subscription price after the 3, 6 or 12 months.
  • For the players who bought Gold premier club, the vanity items were not added if they already had some or all of the items. Some players viewed this as a waste of money, and voiced concern that the recently-released Bloodpouncer pet should have been added as well. This appears to be rectified as of 22 October 2013.
  • Jagex had said that the vanity items would disappear forever, making them rare items and only obtainable from Gold membership. However a couple of months later Jagex released some of the vanity items on the Solomon General store; players who used a keepsake key on a Flaming Skull were not refunded which led to some negative feedback threads about the Gold premier club on the RuneScape Forums.
