If you are a game freak, you know the trap for some “free-to-play” games. You may be surprised at how many players started out as F2Ps and ended up paying for memberships or premium items. At Old School Runescape (OSRS), you can become a member without spending real money through OSRS bonds which is a great thing for those who want to become a member and enjoy all the added member benefits.
Today, we’re going to discuss everything you need to know about these so-called Old School RuneScape Bonds. Moreover, we will tell you how you can exchange these OSRS bonds for RuneScape memberships.
What Are OSRS Bonds?
Old school bonds are virtual game items that open up a world of possibilities for you. These are tradeable directly from one player to another. You can also get them in the Grand Exchange using your in-game wealth or OSRS GP. In addition to this, players can store 20 bonds whether they are tradable, untradeable, or a mix of both in their account. Another great thing about buying Runescape bonds is that they are an excellent motivation to keep you focused and entertained. Furthermore, you can earn loyalty points and redeem Runecoins by acquiring as many bonds as you possibly can.
Here are the three things you can do with an OSRS bond.
Buy OSRS bond
You can buy the bond at Jagex using your credit card, trade bonds with fellow RS players using your OSRS GP or the items you’ve earned, or buy it from a third-party website that sells one.
Trade your purchased bond
As mentioned before, you can exchange bonds in return for currency, game items, or gifts. But once the bond is traded, it becomes untradeable, so if you don’t plan on using a bond anytime soon, then don’t trade for one just yet.
Sell OSRS bond
You are allowed to consume and exchange the bonds in return for membership keys or Runecoins. Remember that when the bond changes its ownership, they become untradeable. If a player wishes to make them tradable again, they are required to pay a fee of 10% of the bond’s exchange value. This costs about 4,802,530 OSRS GP.
How Can you get RuneScape membership using bonds?
There are different membership packages available with a various number of membership days that you can get by simply exchanging your bonds.
All OSRS players can use one or more of their bonds to gain RuneScape membership. The following is the current exchange value for each bond:
- 14 days for 1 OSRS bond
- 29 days for 2 OSRS bonds
- 45 days for 3 OSRS bonds

If you want to save money on RuneScape memberships and do it fast without much work on your end, you can buy RuneScape memberships directly from a third-party website that sells one.
Furthermore, a perk given to all players is that they can change their display username using the Account Management interface or in the account settings on the Runescape website. But one thing to keep in mind is that a player can only change it for free once every 28 days. If they wish to change their username in less than 28 days, they can use a single bond to proceed with their name change without waiting.
Having a good amount of OSRS bonds means you can avail yourself of perks that are exclusive to members like better minigames, more rewarding quests, and the ability to level up P2P-only skills. This is ideal if you plan on starting a RuneScape playing career since you get to do more things and enjoy benefits that F2P players don’t have.
