A selection of edited Gold bars and Gold coins.

Credits, also known as "Coins" are Habbo Hotel's official currency. Credits can be acquired by purchasing them from Habbo directly using real-life money or by trading them in the game itself through the Habbo Exchange. Credits can be spent in the Shop or traded for other items.

However, although Habbo staff admit that there's no such thing as free Credits, recently they started an Earn Credits campaign. This campaign allows you to download games, complete surveys or "like" a page on Facebook to receive Credits; these don't always work, and most are free.

Since 2012 a new type of currency alongside the Credits were introduced called Diamonds. You get the same amount of Diamonds as the Credits you buy, and they allow a user to buy more exclusive types of furniture, memberships, and clothing.

Credit Uses

  • Buying furniture in the Shop or the Marketplace.
  • Buying Pets from the Shop.
  • Exchange them by using the Habbo Exchange to gain tradeable Credit items.
  • Following the above, can be used to display wealth or give prizes/gifts of Credits as well as use Credits to Trade with others.
  • Purchasing Builders Club and Habbo Club

In-Store Credit Vouchers

You were also be able to buy Habbo Credits from your local EB Games store. These are called pre-paid cards, and they are a collectable item. They came in 50c, 100c and 250c. Once you have found your local EB Games store and bought a Habbo prepaid card, scratch the back sticker of the card to reveal the voucher code. This has now been improved and expanded, and they aren't just secluded to an EB store. They were available at Game, WHSmith and Tesco and entitled you to 80 Credits for £10. However, after the Channel 4 Investigation in 2012 many of the large companies, such as Tesco and Game stopped selling these.

Habbo Exchange

Main Article: Habbo Exchange

Credit Furni, also known as Habbo Exchange is the method used to transform your Credits into a tradeable currency. The Bronze Coin, Silver Coin, Gold Coin, Sack of Coins and Gold Bar can be purchased the whole year around, but sometimes Habbo releases temporary currency options as well.

Double Credits

Every so often Habbo will come up will release a Double Credits promotion. During this promotion, Habbo put out an offer whereby a certain number of Credits can be purchased for half of their usual cost. The double Credits promotion usually comes out twice a year, and since the introduction of Diamonds these have also been doubled during the promotion, making it a particularly enticing prospect.

Below is a breakdown of when the Double Credits promotion were announced on Habbo's official Twitter account, which gives some indication as to when the promotion may be expected to pop up again in future years. Although one or two data points are missing (with most years having two double credits promotions reliably), the below trends suggest a likelihood of Double Credits in late March/early April for the first promotion of any given year, and late July to early September for the second promotion. 2020 was the first time that the Double Credits offer was given three times in the same year.

Year Promotion 1 Promotion 2 Promotion 3

2019 26th March 24th July No Data
2018 28th March 26th July No Data

Earn Credits

In 2012 Sulake added a way for users to get Credits by completing small tasks, which quickly became a very popular method of getting essentially free Credits. Especially popular was the in-client advertising video, which gave the user one Bronze Coin for every completed watch. This was easily exploited as many users watched the videos repeatedly on clone accounts and collected large amounts of free Credits. Credit rewards for this was subsequently removed in early 2013 and replaced with 'Watch & Earn', for which users would receive junk furniture. After this feature was removed, the Earning Credits options were reduced to survey tracks, mobile app rewards (often for downloading a game and reaching a certain level), or registering for various advertising outlets.

Credit Tax

Goods.png

The Credit Tax is a term that refers to the slightly increased price of tradeable credit furni when bought from the catalogue compared to their redeemable amount. The tradeable currencies originally available were: Bronze Coin (1c, costing 2c to purchase), Silver Coin (5c, costing 6c to purchase), Gold Coin (10c, costing 11c to purchase), Sack of Coins (20c, costing 21c to purchase) and the Gold Bar (50c, costing 51 to purchase).

Due to the fact that each transaction costs an additional 1c with no regard to the overall cost, it is therefore far more economical to buy larger amounts if possible - for example, 50c as a Gold Bar will set you back 51c whereas 50 individual purchases of Bronze Coins would originally have ended up costing 100c in total. To combat this, and to allow for the wider use of Bronze Coins for event prizes and small trades, it has since been made possible to buy bundles of smaller currency while keeping just 1c as the "tax", for example paying 51c for 50 Bronze Coins or 21c for 4 Silver Coins.

On 4th April 2011 the Platinum Bar was released which was worth 500 Credits, and did not carry the usual tax. With this in mind, if one had the means to purchase these they would always represent at least an even investment, as it would never be worth less than what was paid in the catalogue. Since then, a large number of such items have been released for short periods of time which can be seen on the Habbo Exchange page.

Trivia
