Just like the real world, you need money—or Neopoints—on Neopets if you really want to succeed. Neopoints allow you to buy the things you want for your pets, build your dream gallery, buy the paintbrush colour you’ve always wanted, buy pieces for the lab ray map, buy the perfect customisation pieces- basically, everything you want or need on the game will require Neopoints, and you’ve got to have a lot of them for some of the things you want.

If you’re wondering how to make money on the game, you’ve come to the perfect place. Here are the best tips on how to reliably make money on Neopets!

“Ghoul Catchers”


Ghoul Catchers is a free mobile app that you can download on your device to earn 50k NPs a day. The game is basically the Neopets version of Candy Crush; it’s a match-3 game that requires you to match three of the same icons to clear the level.

With Ghoul Catchers you can log-in using your Neopets site information and link the account with the game. Every time you complete a level, you earn 1,000 NP, capped off at 50,000 Neopoints a day!

The best strategy for Ghoul Catchers is to replay level 1 repeatedly until you reach the daily cap, as it’s the easiest/quickest level to complete, since you only need to make 5 matches. You can play level 1 50 times in about 20-30 minutes and earn your 50K Neopoints. The “day” for Ghoul Catchers refreshes at 5 p.m., Neopian Standard Time.

There is a known glitch where the game will say that you’ve reached your daily Neopoints limit even if you haven’t, so the best thing to do is to refresh the website periodically when you’re applying and keep track of how much money you’ve earned with Ghoul Catchers, and then stop once you’ve earned your 50K limit.

I do honestly find Ghoul Catchers a bit of a grind, so I don’t play it every single day, but it’s an easy way to earn extra NP on the go.


One of the most well-known ways of obtaining items and Neopoints is through Dailies. Dailies are activities you can do on the site every day (hence the name), and include a variety of activities, from spinning wheels, visiting special locations in Neopia, collecting free food, and more.

I recommend visiting The Daily Neopets Dailies page each day for a full list of Dailies.

My personal favourites (and ones I win the most NP/valuable objects on) are:

Trudy’s SurpriseAnchor ManagementGrave DangerWheel of MediocrityTombolaFruit MachineColtzan’s ShrineTDMGPOPQasalan ExpelliboxThe Wishing WellForgotten Shore

With the Forgotten Shore, you actually need to buy the map pieces to complete the shore first. You can buy all 9 of them from user shops if you search for the pieces (they are all here on JellyNeo), individually; they are pretty cheap and shouldn’t cost you more than 50NPs each on average. Once you complete the map, visit the shore each day for a chance of a prize. I’ve won 10K NP from the shore multiple times a month, which is pretty great for a few hundred NP investment!


Trudy's Surprise is one the best dailies you can do; after 25 consecutive spins, you win $100K! This resets every 25 days.


Restocking is a well-known way to earn lots of money, and involves buying items at a low price and selling them for a profit in your user shop.

Obviously, to start restocking, you’ll need to open up a shop. It costs 150 NP to open a shop, but I recommend investing 2150 NP so you can hold 25 items in your shop at one time. Once you’ve opened a shop, you need to fill it up with stock, which you can get a variety of ways.

You can obviously sell the items you earn for free via your dailies, which is the best way to make a profit, as whatever money you make is pure profit from items you obtained for free.

You can also buy items from the official Neopets shops, like Neopian Fresh Foods or the Magical Bookshop. The tactic with the official shops is to haggle with the shopkeepers and buy the items for a lower price than they’re asking/what you can sell them for. Neopets’ player, Briannea, wrote an excellent and in-depth guide about restocking in the official shops, which I highly recommend following.
