Builders Club (BC) is a premium membership that grants users extra privileges which cannot be obtained by non-Builders Club users, such as a daily Robux stipend or the ability to make shirts and pants. These items enable much greater customization of users' avatars and their interactive creations.

There are three types of Builders Club memberships that a player can purchase: Builders Club, Turbo Builders Club and Outrageous Builders Club. Roblox game cards which can be used to obtain BC memberships can be purchased at various retailers such as GameStop, Best Buy, EB Games, Walmart, etc. When purchasing Robux, a user with Builders Club will receive a somewhat significant bonus of more Robux with their purchase compared to a non-Builders Club member. Prices for both Builders Club and Robux may vary between currencies, e.g. a user with their account's country set to the United Kingdom will view prices in GBP rather than USD.

Players can purchase Builders Club memberships that automatically renew monthly or annually. Previously, they could purchase memberships that last 6 months or lifetime (100 years) up until August 4, 2015, when it was deprecated. Despite the inability to purchase this option, players with an active lifetime Builders Club membership will continue to receive their Builders Club benefits for the duration of the purchased period.

Former Builders Club

Former Builders Club is an unofficial membership reserved for players who had previously purchased any type of Builders Club membership. Members who have previously purchased Builders Club, Turbo Builders Club, or Outrageous Builders Club have the same features as a free user, but can still keep the Welcome to the Club badge, the hard hat corresponding to the Builders Club membership they had as well as the extra hats they were given if they bought OBC, and still stay in any groups they were in above the maximum limit of 5 (but will be unable to join new groups unless they go back down to only being in 4 groups or buy a new Builders Club membership).

Welcome To The Club Badge

Welcome to the club derp

The Welcome To The Club Badge is a badge that can be earned by purchasing any type of Builders Club membership. It was released on October 14, 2014 along with the Official Model Maker badge. This badge would also be obtained if a user's BC membership expired before the badge's release. The player can still keep this badge if his or her Builders Club membership expires. It is a permanent badge.

Roblox Cards

Main article: Game Cards 

Roblox Cards are cards with codes to either get more Robux or Builders Club. They are sold for $10, $25, $40 and $50 and can be found at various places like Wal-Mart, Target, Best Buy, GameStop, EB Games, 7-Eleven, etc. Toys "R" Us cards were released earlier than 7-Eleven cards, on September 26th. 7-Eleven cards were released on October 1st. After that was announced, card gears were released, also being the first gear costing tickets. Toys "R" Us cards can no longer be obtained as the company filed for bankrupcy.

Criticism

Multiple discussions within the community have occurred that debated the features a premium member has compared to a free member. Some features, like players allowing their games to be restricted to only users who have a premium membership have sparked criticism within the Roblox community. Some members of the community believe that users who have purchased a Builders Club membership are less likely to be moderated on Roblox, though these reports cannot be theoretically proven. It has also gotten lots of hate, mainly because ODers (Online Daters) purchase memberships to show off their "wealth."

Roblox Mobile App purchases

Roblox provides the option to buy Robux and Builders Club with your Google Play/iTunes/Amazon credit as well. Unlike purchases made by the website, app purchases are not recurring and Google Play/iTunes/Amazon will automatically convert currencies for you. Mobile app purchases are unique in the sense that they allow players to purchase memberships for 3 months at a time rather than annual. Note that these purchases are also available through the Windows 10 app.

Trivia

This section is a trivia section. Please relocate any relevant information into other sections of the article.

  • Builders Club was introduced in 2007. However, because Robux was not available back then, players wouldn't get the daily stipend of Robux.
  • TBC and OBC did not exist at the time, and were later created in 2009. OBC also had its own uniquely themed page before a change that brought it onto the main Builders Club page.
  • 6-Month and Lifetime (100 years) plans existed alongside Monthly and Annual, before being removed on August 4, 2015. Any users who purchased a Lifetime plan before its removal got to keep their permanent membership.
