Minor correction to the above: Every character you create AND login will get VIP bonuses unlocked permanently (even if you drop to Premium after the first month). If you just create them and don't log them in, they will not get these bonuses. You do not have to play them tho it is suggested you at least get each toon out of the starter area so that they can access mail and vault space for extra storage.
