Webkinz Newz Up and Running With a New GanzWorld Rewards System!


After several days of being down for maintenance, Webkinz Newz is up and running, although you may not recognize it at first with its new format and the introduction of the new  Ganzword Reward system!
 
The good newz is that every time you click on a page or area, you receive one GanzWorld Moneyz, the new currency that has replaced the KinzCash which you had previously been able to send to your Webkinz World account! You will also be able to earn Moneyz by entering contests, or playing Peek-a-Newz Challenges and Clicky Floaty events, Treasure Hunts, etc. on the new Webkinz Newz site.
 
Moneyz that you earn by playing games, entering contests, etc. in the WKN Arcade and by just wandering the site can now be spent to buy exclusive prizes which can be sent to various Ganz game sites including Webkinz World, Nakamas, Amazing World, etc. You can redeem your Moneyz by clicking the Spend your Moneyz  icon (seen here) on the left side of any page when you are logged into your GanzWorld account!
 
It may take a little while to get used to the new format, but it sure looks like fun and Webkinz Insider members will want to take advantage of the chance to win some great exclusive GanzWorld Rewards!

Re: Webkinz Newz Up and Running With a New GanzWorld Rewards System!

Interesting! My face is exactly like that kid's right now.
lol
I'll go check it out!

Re: Webkinz Newz Up and Running With a New GanzWorld Rewards System!

Sounds interesting!
I hope everything works out okay haha

Re: Webkinz Newz Up and Running With a New GanzWorld Rewards System!

Very different looking, will have to get use to this. I do like the ganzworld rewards, an easy way to get things for your accounts.

Re: Webkinz Newz Up and Running With a New GanzWorld Rewards System!

All videos are gone - Pet of the Month, Fun Videos ...

Re: Webkinz Newz Up and Running With a New GanzWorld Rewards System!

Can anyone login to it? I tried with the account I have setup already. It says invalid password. When I try password help it says the username doesn't exist. I try a new account but it says that username already exists. So I try something entirely different and get the activation link but when I click on the link it says invalid code.

Re: Webkinz Newz Up and Running With a New GanzWorld Rewards System!

I'm having a lot of trouble with passwords too. It also keeps logging me out so I'm not getting all of the moneyz I should. Hopefully this will all work itself out in a few days. It is pretty well organized and, content-wise, it seems to be functional. Good job Ganz. See, it does pay to take the time you need up front

Re: Webkinz Newz Up and Running With a New GanzWorld Rewards System!

I really like the new look and I think navigation will be a lot easier.

But so much content is missing right now - videos, treasure hunts, contests, etc. I hope they come back soon

Re: Webkinz Newz Up and Running With a New GanzWorld Rewards System!

Wow thanks for the info.......

Re: Webkinz Newz Up and Running With a New GanzWorld Rewards System!

It had me logged in automatically when I went to it earlier. No problem at all. Hopefully you can get yours fixed too.

It will take some getting use to but I think I'll like the new format when I do. One thing I love is being able to real time post in the forums now. No more waiting for a post to show up.

Re: Webkinz Newz Up and Running With a New GanzWorld Rewards System!

There is a daily limit of 500 dollars to win each day. So it will take several days to build up a reserve of ganzrewards.

Re: Webkinz Newz Up and Running With a New GanzWorld Rewards System!

A limit?!? That is awful.
I play Gemeralds in the WKN Arcade every day. Since the change, I am told how many points I won, but I am not given any idea of the new currency I should have earned.
Anyone know why? Am I getting paid to play the game, or not?

Re: Webkinz Newz Up and Running With a New GanzWorld Rewards System!

Ohhh....great news. Thanks for the info. Hope I won't have any trouble logging in.

Hi poobears,
I did leave a post for them, but it says it is waiting for moderation. I believe that means that the poster and moderator can see the comment but no one else can see it. That is the way it works on the parents site. It changed a couple weeks ago.

Can you please explain your comment about not waiting. Thanks!

Here is the post I left on the announcement.

This is my first time to see the new web-site. There is a message that says I have reached the Moneyz maximum of 500. This is impossible since it my first time here. I did go to the parents site over the weekend and on Monday. My total from the initial login bonus (1500) and other things is 2324. Will the Kinzapedia, Pet of the Month Videos, Fun Videos, Pick 'n WIn, Quizzes, and Contests return? I sure hope they are not retired.

((Hugs))
Auntie

Re: Webkinz Newz Up and Running With a New GanzWorld Rewards System!

On the WEBKINZ front page, there are five articles.

Only the last one has to do with Webkinz. Why do they do that? If I wanted Webkinz Friends news, or Naakamamamama news, I would click those tabs. I don't -- I only want WEBKINZ WORLD news. Too bad. We get whatever drivel Ganz decides to put up. At least the Forums are open for kids to post. Nothing else but the Arcade is loaded. All that time down for this?

Hi AnotherKinzDad,
First you need to be logged in to your webkinznewz account. Second make a note of your total Moneyz You will see this in the blue bar that runs across the top of the page. After you play your game, check your total Moneyz. If the total does not change, it is a glitch.

There are some games that work and others that do not. We need to start a Glitch report to track this.

Hi AKD,
It is hard to know why they made the change. My guess is that Ganz wants the Webkinz users to use their other games. That complements all the ads, floaties, and prizes in WW for their other games.

I checked my points before and after this time. I am getting ganz currency. But I also already reached my 500pts-for-the-day limit. Bummer. How are we supposed to earn KinzCash for our accounts now?

Re: Webkinz Newz Up and Running With a New GanzWorld Rewards System!

I haven't played any of the newer videos to get the prize because my dock is so full already. I really hope that they add that feature back. The nakamas video with the wreath prize was just added! So far I am disappointed. Hopefully they come around & begin to add back some of the older beloved features. Considering the Kinzpedia page says "coming soon," I think (alright, hope) that they aren't done yet.

Re: Webkinz Newz Up and Running With a New GanzWorld Rewards System!

I am not a big fan. All I really like is WW and when I go to the arcade to play, it lets me play but then during the game, it goes back to loading and never finishes loading and this is in the middle of a level I am playing and I don't get my rewards. This is terrible.

Maybe I will like it when they have it running properly. Also, we u se to be able to trade in the forums but I can't find where we can even do that anymore. A lot of times it was so much better than trying to find stuff in the clubhouse.

Re: Webkinz Newz Up and Running With a New GanzWorld Rewards System!

I really hope they are still working on the site overall. I want the videos back and the Peek-a-newz & click to win ads. There are currently no contests available for either WKN or PC. I've reached my daily max of 500 points earned and think we may have to activate a Ganzworld account to match each WW account in order to accumulate enough points to sent gifts to each account if we so desire. This could become very time consuming. I'm dissappointed in the lack of WW prizes compared to the prizes available for Nakamas, AW, TT & WF. The only WW one I'm interested in so far is the Christmas Clock as I have plenty of the other items they are currently offering.

Re: Webkinz Newz Up and Running With a New GanzWorld Rewards System!

And now you can only earn 500 Moneyz a day.
