The Goosebumps Fan Club was a fan club active from 1995-1998 that allowed readers to receive by mail Goosebumps newsletters and merchandise. The Goosebumps Fan Club 2000 could be subscribed to in 1998. The Fan Club newsletter was called 'The Scream'.

The fan club was usually promoted in the ads at the back of the Goosebumps books and at the beginning of the Goosebumps VHS tapes.

The Goosebumps Collectors Club allowed readers to gradually collect all books in the series as well as receive newsletters by mail. The Collectors Club newsletter was called the 'Scarezine'. The Collectors Club was promoted through tear-out color advertisements in Scholastic School Market Editions of original series books #59-62 and Series 2000 books. An ad for a UK version of the Collectors Club could be found in UK goosebumps books.

Trivia

  • The 1997 Fan Club advertisement accidentally refers to the skeleton cook on the cover of Say Cheese and Die! as Curly. This appears to have been a common mistake used on several pieces of merchandise.
