Two new Alvin Challenges on Webkinz Newz


Two new challenges relating to the new Alvin and the Chipmunks ChipWrecked Movie have been added to Webkinz Newz. Both challenges run each day from December 7th 12:00 am EST until December 18th 11:59 pm EST. The first challenge is a ChipWrecked Peek-A-Newz. Simply search Webkinz Newz, find Alvin five times and a prize will be awarded to your account. The second challenge ChipWrecked Promotion is an ad search. Find the above ad (on the right), click on it, fill out the applicable fields and an Alvin's Hawaiian Shirt will be added to your account. As always one prize per Webkinz World account per day.

Re: Two new Alvin Challenges on Webkinz Newz

i did the peek a newz and did not get a prize, nothing was added to my dock.

Re: Two new Alvin Challenges on Webkinz Newz

Cool! I'm so going to see that movie! I'll find him for sure!

Re: Two new Alvin Challenges on Webkinz Newz

I also won a toy electric guitar from clicking on the floating candy cane.

Re: Two new Alvin Challenges on Webkinz Newz

According to WKN the click the ad is only for Canadians! But...once I win the shirt from the ad it won't let me click the candy cane for a prize and vice-versa.

The prize for the ad is a shirt, the candy cane is random.

Re: Two new Alvin Challenges on Webkinz Newz

Interesting. Is this the first time they have ever had a contest open to Canada only? Usually they are the ones left out of these things. How nice for them.

I was able to get the Hawaiian shirt by clicking on the floating candy cane... which wasn't supposed to be floating today.

So confusing. All these freebies are great... but so confusing along with all the challenges. I need a day planner just to keep things straight. lol.

Re: Two new Alvin Challenges on Webkinz Newz

So if you are in canada you are suppose to do the ad and if you are in the US you are suppose to do the candy cane? But you don't know what prize you will get from the candy cane and you'll get the shirt only from the ad.

I agree it's kind of confusing LOL

I guess I'll take my chances with the candy cane since I'm US and hope I get a shirt.

Anyone know what the peek a newz prize is yet?

Re: Two new Alvin Challenges on Webkinz Newz

I got 2 blue full-length hoodies, a green full-length hoodie and 2 guitars today! I hope I can get the glasses/noses that go along with them. does anyone know what all the prizes will be?

I got those from the peek-a-news. I got five hawaiian shirts from the candy canes!

The same thing happened to me. Also, I clicked on the ad and won a shirt, but then clicked on the floating candy cane later and won....nothing. It said I had already participated in that event. Very, very weird.

So it seems Webkinz is getting around their own rules by having the ad "just for Canada" but then giving away prizes via a floating candy cane for the rest of the world? Wow, that seems ridiculously unfair because when they give away prizes just to the States they don't have the same floaty clicky thing for the rest of the world.

So today, because I live in Canada, I got the Hawai'ian shirt, but have no chance to win the floating prizes. And the box that took me 20 minutes to get (the peek-a-news is never a cakewalk) gave me nothing.

So far, I'm not impressed with this Alvin promotion. Isn't that the OPPOSITE of what the people advertising would like to hear? :|

Re: Two new Alvin Challenges on Webkinz Newz

The floating candy cane gave the United States the Hawaiian Shirts. The peek-a-newz gives you the gift box. When you put it in your room it says you've got a prize and to check your dock. I had to search a little bit, but I did find my prizes. Either a guitar or a green or blue full-length hoodie is what i got. So search your dock for the gift box prize.

Thanks for the info.

Just finished peek a newz (very easy this time) and got 4 candy canes while I was doing it so they are popping up quite a bit too. Also saw the free spree roll ad so be sure to get your free spree rolls too. Lots of freebies today. Now to do peek a newz for the other 7 accounts LOL

I guess I don't understand why you would begrudge the US from getting gifts too. You should be happy that they made it available to Canada, they usually don't. I understand you usually don't get them, but this time you are, so be happy that you and I are both able to get them.
Just remember... "tis the season to be jolly!"

Re: Two new Alvin Challenges on Webkinz Newz

I also clicked on the ad, but when I click on the candy cane, it tells me that I've already done it. So perhaps it is one or the other? Unfortunately I've done the ads for all our accounts, so I can't test to see if I could do the candy cane if I hadn't done the ad. This is a tad confusing...

Re: Two new Alvin Challenges on Webkinz Newz

I have opened two gift boxes and gotten two different chipette dresses. Are the hoodies the same as the old ones? I think I will pass on this PAN if they are all repeat prizes.

Yes the hoodies are the same as the old ones!

Re: Two new Alvin Challenges on Webkinz Newz

O.K. folks. I'm in the U.S. and played the Peek-a-Newz on WKN and found Alvin 5 times. Once I logged into my account the Alvin "gift box" that they show in the Peek-a-Newz ad was in my dock and when I pulled it into my room to open it, it was empty. HOWEVER, when I looked through my dock there was a "Blue Long Hoodie" which is the same Hoodie that you could win years ago when the first Alvin and the Chipmunks movie game out. Kinda bummed about that!! Also, during the time that I was playing the WKN Peek-a-Newz there were several times when a "candy cane" floated around. Each time that I clicked on it and put in my account info it said that I would receive the "Alvin Shirt" BUT it was not in my dock once I logged onto WKW. I think they have a few kinks to work out.... like usual!

I really do wish everyone could participate in everything. We're all good people - we should be treated the same!

In the meantime, I know the rules now. I can try the floating canes on another day, perhaps. And I'll get a few extra Hawai'ian shirts to share with the rest of the world.

Oh, hang on: you guys are getting the SHIRT when you click on the candy canes? Not random stuff? That's very different. Never mind, then.

I got the shirt from the candy cane each time (US) and random repeat clothes from the boxes.

From what I am reading candy canes are for US accounts and ads are for canadian accounts. Since you can only be registered in one country you can't do both.

I think everyone needs to focus on the positive. Maybe Ganz has figured out a way to offer the contest prizes to Canada too by making that contest Canada only. Why they didn't do it sooner? Maybe they just got the logistics figured out, hopefully this is a preview of things to come so everyone can have fun.

Re: Two new Alvin Challenges on Webkinz Newz

The Hawaiian Shirt Ad is only available in Canada, but if you click on the floating candy cane, you can still get the shirt. Also, I'm not sure if anyone's noticed, but there are two menorahs at the W Shop now.

I saw them! Also there's a wreath and overstuffed stocking. No window, though. Not yet, at least.

Re: Two new Alvin Challenges on Webkinz Newz

if you look at the original note for the candy cane it is not even suppose to be floating today. the peek a news is suppose to b for a gift and the ad is suppose to be for the shirt. i am getting peek a news done and i am getting candy canes but i am not seeing the ad anywhere, is anyone seeing the ad?
