The Big Spender

by m1rina1

Do you spend your Neopoints just as fast as you earn them? If you play a lot of games, earn a lot of money, and still have an empty bank account, then this guide was made just for you.

There are a lot of Big Spenders out there that donít like to save money, but like to blow it all on toys, food, and magical items. I know exactly how you guys feel. I like to spoil my pets sometimes, show off by putting cool items in my shop, or just buy stuff because itís sold for a really cheap price. However, you should always remember that there might come a rainy day when youíll need medicine to heal your pet, or food because your pet is starving. Thatís why you should always have some Neopoints stashed away in your bank account, just in case. I know itís hard, thatís why I put together the following list to make it easier for you.

1. If you plan on buying something expensive, always search the market place for it first. You never know how much you can save. Maybe even thousands. Remember, better safe than sorry.

2. If youíre selling something in your shop, search the market place as well. You might be putting a cheap price on something very expensive.

3. When youíve earned some Neopoints, donít spend them on something rare or unnecessary. Make sure youíve got the basics first. Donít buy Codestones before you have food and toys.

4. Avoid buying stuff you donít need. Donít buy a couch if you donít have a NeoHome. Where do you plan on putting it?

5. Put some money in the bank as often as you can. For example put in 10 to 50 Neopoints everyday. Itís not a big amount, but itíll pay off. When you have a lot of money saved up, you can start putting in less, and spending more.

6. If you just bought something expensive, make sure you earn that money back by playing games. You donít have to earn it back immediately, but make sure you do earn it back.

7. I know youíve been told this before, but here it goes again. PLAY GAMES! I hope you realise that games are the best way to earn money. Most of the money in my bank account was earned by playing games. The games I get my money from are Meerca Chase, Switch-A-Roo, Cheat!, Pterattack, Destruct-O-Match, and Ice Cram factory. Another good game is the Treasure Hunt. If you complete it you get a piece of Space Map, which can be sold for a large chunk of Neopoints

8. When you buy something in the main shops you donít have to give the shopkeeper as many Neopoints as he or she is asking for. Try to bargain with the shopkeepers, offer them a few Neopoints less. If youíre buying something really expensive you can save dozens of Neopoints However, you do need to stay reasonable, or else youíll get kicked out of the shop.

9. If youíre collecting something like Usuki dolls or trading cards, donít buy them all at once. Wait until you earn more money, and then purchase more.

10. Most importantly, remember that you are playing NeoPets for fun, and to take good care of your pets. The point of the game isnít to make the most money, or to own the rarest items. It is to look after your pets, and to have a great time doing it.

If you use these ten tips in your daily Neopian life youíll become rich and ready for a rainy day in no time. Thatís how I did it.
