One of those "little guy" icons so prevalent on - is it AOL?  MSN? - anyway, 
with either a $ or a star or whatever would work with your site "feel" as to 
"member privilege" worked into the icon graphic.  16x16 is so small that you're 
really limited to stuff that's already been done so that people get the

membership demographic.
