VIP was released on the 25th of April 2010 as an upgraded version of HC and had many more benefits, however, it cost 10 Credits more than HC. In 2011, the ability to purchase HC was discontinued altogether. With a range of new staff members circulating the hotel early January 2013, a series of changes were implemented. As a result, VIP was discontinued as users preferred the original Habbo Club. HC was re-introduced on the 16th of January 2013.

A Year's Worth of VIP
During the Easter period, Sulake decided to temporarily lower the price of VIP. This discount allowed players to buy a year's worth of VIP for the price of 100 Credits, which worked out at a 200 Credits discount. The offer was only around for a couple of days, however, and all the users who purchased it received an exclusive badge. This award is known as the Diamond VIP Badge.
Club Gifts were given out monthly to VIP Club members. A player was eligible to choose a gift every month they were a member. They had the choice to receive a piece of furniture from a list - however, not all the items on the list were unlocked at one given time. The longer the user was subscribed to VIP, the more gifts would be available to them. Below the Habbo Club header on the Club Gifts page, you were able to see how long before you were eligible for the next gift and how long until you unlocked the next piece of furni.
