Cookies and Helpers are Here

The Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp Club plans that were recently announced as a paid subscription have had their details revealed.

There are two separate types of subscription plans that are available to players. These are:

 
  • The Happy Helper Plan
  • The Cookie & Depot Plan

Each of these two Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp Club plans have their own unique benefits and monthly pricing. Let's get right into breaking them down!

The Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp Club Happy Helper Plan

Price: $2.99/month

The first Club plan we'll be covering is much more generous than the second — and it isn't all that expensive, either, costing players only $2.99 a month to get the benefits.

The "Happy Helper" plan is exactly what it says on the tin. It lets you appoint a "Camp Caretaker" to your camp who will take care of requests made by other animals while you're logged off. Naturally, you'll receive the rewards that were earned as soon as you log back in.

 

You can see the Happy Helper plan in action in the video below.

That's not all it does, though! Whomever you appoint as your Camp Caretaker, they'll be able to help out with special events:

  • Scavenger Hunts
  • Fishing Tournies
  • Garden Events
  • and more

Timers, too, will get a boost — things that would normally take 24 hours will be reduced to a mere 30 minutes with an active subscription to the Happy Helper plan. You'll also receive access to the "Pocket Club Camp Journal", an in-game newsletter that tells you about events around town and gives you a preview of upcoming items.

Lastly (but far from least), subscribers to this plan will get 60 free Leaf Tickets every month.  If you're unsure about the benefits, there's also a one-month free trial available for you to use.

 

The Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp Club Cookie & Depot Plan

Price: $7.99/month

Aside from the Happy Helper plan, there's also a more expensive premium option: the Cookie & Depot plan.

Let's start with the shared benefits — subscribers to the Cookie & Depot plan will also get the faster wait timer benefits and access to the in-game Pocket Club Camp Journal.  Beyond that, everything is different as you can see in the video below:

There's a bit of bad news with this one, so let's get it out of the way first: there doesn't appear to be a free trial option available for the Cookie & Depot plan. Beyond that (and the price, which some may balk at), there's a whole bunch of upsides if you love premium items.

If you're a big fan of Fortune Cookies, this is the plan for you. The first major benefit is access to a member's only cookie shop which lets you choose 5 special fortune cookies every month. This selection will include some cookies that are out of stock in the regular store.

 

As the name might indicate, you're also going to be getting a boost to storage. A massive inventory space of 5,000 items will be opened up to players who pick up this Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp Club plan.

And... that's about it. This seems to be the plan for people who just can't stop collecting items, something that might cost them some real-world money anyway. I imagine those folks probably wouldn't shy away from a $7.99 month subscription to store all of their loot.

We don't know for sure when these subscriptions will be made live. What is certain is that these don't seem to be received very well judging by 1.8K dislikes vs. 1.1K likes on the "Happy Helper plan" video and 1.5K dislikes versus 696 likes on the "Cookie & Depot plan" video. I guess we'll see how popular these really are when the subscriptions go live.

Will you be picking up either of the Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp Club plans? Do you think the price for these plans is too high? Let us know in the comments below!
