"Hello everyone. Looks like it's time for another House Point Ceremony. Let's see which House is ahead this week... Hmm, it appears that Gryffindor is in the lead. Harry, it looks like you get to visit the Bonus Bean Room."
Albus Dumbledore[src]

The Bean Bonus Room (also known as the Bonus Bean Room) is a room in Hogwarts where students can visit to collect Bertie Bott's Every-Flavour Beans and treats, usually acting under a time limit.

1992–1993 school year

Houses competed periodically throughout the 1992–1993 school year to allow one of their students into the room, which was full of beans which the student had to collect. Dumbledore tallied the House points in the House Point Ceremony Chamber. If Gryffindor won the tally, then Harry Potter could enter the Bean Room. However if Slytherin won, Draco Malfoy would get the honours. Students could access more parts of the Bean Bonus Room as they learned more spells throughout the school year.[1]

1993–1994 school year

Remus Lupin: "Well done, Ron! And... you found all ten Challenge Shields! Which means... you get to visit the Bean Bonus Room."
Ronald Weasley: "Wow! This is the Bean Bonus Room?"
Remus Lupin: "That's right, Ron. Collect as many goodies as you can before the time runs out."
— Lupin to Ron[src]
Minerva McGonagall: "Nicely done, Miss Granger! You've completed the challenge. You've collected all ten Challenge Shields, which means..."
Hermione Granger: "I get to go to the Bean Bonus Room! Fantastic! Wow! This is the Bean Bonus Room?"
Minerva McGonagall: "Correct, Hermione. Collect as many goodies as you can before the time runs out."
— McGonagall to Hermione[src]
Filius Flitwick: "Excellent job, Harry. You've completed the Glacius challenge! Not only managed to get all ten Challenge Shields! You know what that means!"
Harry Potter: "The Bean Bonus Room!"
Filius Flitwick: "Have fun, Harry!"
Harry Potter: "Wow! This is the Bean Bonus Room?"
Filius Flitwick: "That's right, Harry. Collect as many goodies as you can before the time runs out."
— Flitwick to Harry[src]

In the 1993–1994 school year, the Bean Bonus Room's location and layout were changed. A student had to find the ten challenge shields to enter. It was located in the side chamber off the Entrance Hall and now included Cauldron Cakes and Pumpkin Pasties. Some of the school's suits of armour held sweets inside.

If Harry Potter had collected all Chocolate Frog Cards, by the end of this school year, Fred and George Weasley would allow him to enter the Bean Bonus Room without a time limit and collect the Founders', Albus Dumbledore's, and his own Chocolate Frog Cards.[2]
