As we let you know in this prior post, Farmville has been hard at work preparing a NEW VIP Membership program. You may have seen a survey in the past two months in which a pop-up on your farm asked if you were interested in one of the options for the new program shown here (each player was only given one randomly selected option to vote on). Those who participated were rewarded with a free Lace Heart Cow. Now Zynga has compiled the results and based upon them has opted to roll out the new program with just one simple option offering 30 Farm Cash weekly for $10 USD per month. The other options inquired about in the survey WILL NOT BE RELEASED. Shailesh at Zynga has confirmed the intended pricing and single released option for us. Now your Dirt Farmer team has a guide for you so you can determine whether or not you are interested in the new program. Check out the details below and please do share with friends if you find our post helpful.
When the Feature is released to you, you will receive the following pop-up inviting you to sign up.
If you opt not to sign up, you get another pop-up reminding you that the program is a 50% discount off normal pricing.
If you do sign up, you will receive a weekly pop-up reminding you to collect
Note that the 999 FC in the images is PLACEHOLDER TEXT. THE PROGRAM GRANTS 30 FARM CASH EVERY MONDAY FOR A TOTAL OF 120 PER MONTH NOT 999.
If you click “Learn More” in the lower right corner of the popup, the full details of the feature are available. You receive 30 Farm Cash for signing up and an additional 30 Farm Cash every Monday. If you do not play on a given Monday, you will receive your 30 Farm Cash the next time you log in. Shailesh has stated that the price is $10 USD per month. This is a subscription program and a recurring charge. You will be charged an additional $10 on the same day of every month that you signed up. So if you sign up on the 25th you will be charged on the 25th of every month. This amount will be charged to the credit card or Pay Pal account you sign up with.
In addition, if you keep your subscription active, you will attain different levels of VIP membership. The levels are Bronze, Silver, Gold, Ruby, and Diamond. Below, we will list all the benefits of each level.
The first level is Bronze. This is the level you are when you sign up. The benefits of this level include the 120 FC per month, 100 extra bushel capacity in your market stalls, bushels from your friends every 10 hours as opposed to the normal 23 hours, special items in the market that only VIP members can buy, and as a Bronze member, 20% off those items.
When you get to your 2nd consecutive month, you will attain Silver membership. Benefits of Silver membership are 120 FC per month, 200 extra bushel capacity in your market stalls, bushels from friends every 10 hours, and 30% off the special VIP only market items.
Once you reach your 4th consecutive month, you will reach Gold membership. Benefits of Gold membership include 120 FC per month, 500 extra bushel capacity in your market stalls, 4 super fertilizer per month, bushels from your friends every 10 hours, and 30% off the special VIP only market items.
Once you reach your 7th consecutive month, you will reach Ruby membership. Benefits of Ruby membership include 120 FC per month, 700 extra bushel capacity in your market stalls, 6 super fertilizers per month, bushels from your friends every 8 hours, 5% discount on all land expansions, and 40% off of the special VIP only market items.
Once you reach your 13th consecutive month, you will achieve the final level, Diamond. Benefits of Diamond membership include 120 FC per month, 900 extra bushel capacity in your market stalls, 12 super fertilizers per month, bushels from your friends every 8 hours, 5% discount on all land expansions, 40% off of the special VIP only market items, and a free Unicorn every month. You can find a list of the Unicorns here.
With the release of the VIP membership program, the coins to cash program has been abolished. If you are already a coins to cash subscriber, you will be automatically converted to the new program which has the same price and essentially offers the same benefits (though in months with 5 Mondays you will get an additional 30 Farm Cash now and you also will no longer need to use coins or remember to do several trades)
If you wish to cancel, you can access the program from the VIP tab, between the “Get Farm Cash” and “Redeem” tabs at the top of the game or via the in game icon . Cancellation will prevent you from being charged again, but will not give you a partial refund for the existing month. Benefits will continue until the next billing date, and expire at that time. You can also use that tab to sign up if you opt to do so after closing the pop-up.
