Webkinz Insider Members Puzzled About the February Deluxe Gift Item! *UPDATE*


 
Given the current trend of Deluxe Membership promotion, Webkinz Insider members were surprised to learn that the February 2013 Deluxe Gift Item, the Queen of Hearts Gown, is unable to be KinzPosted! .. a move that has left Deluxe Membership account holders puzzled and wondering what this new development may portend!
 
Since the beginning of Deluxe Membership in April of 2009, the Monthly Gift Boxes have been greatly anticipated by Webkinz Insider Deluxe members and the Deluxe Gift has been KinzPostable.
 
Webkinz Insider members are hoping that this is merely a programming error and not a new trend to remove features from Deluxe Membership .. a move which may discourage Webkinz World account holders from 'going Deluxe'.
 
Webkinz Insider members are currently waiting patiently to see if this is indeed an error that will eventually be 'fixed'....  a similar error, perhaps, as was the inability to KinzPost the Sizzling Swan PSI, the Fiery Fountain shown here, when it first became available. The Sizzing Swan PSI  has since been programmed to be KinzPostable.
 
Update: We can happily announce that that this issue was indeed an error in programming! :) An update has been posted on WKN as follows:
Please note: Currently there is a glitch which is preventing players from selling or trading the gown. This has been fixed on our end and will take effect after our next update on February 20th.

Re: Webkinz Insider Members Puzzled About the February Deluxe Gift Item!

I love the dress! I'm a deluxe member so I can't wait to see which of my pets looks good in it. BTW I haven't gotten the yearly gift yet, what's up with that? Did any other deluxe members get their yearly gifts yet???

Re: Webkinz Insider Members Puzzled About the February Deluxe Gift Item!

I was very surprised to find that the new deluxe gift was not kinz postable. I hope it is a glitch because if not, I will not be going deluxe again w hen my account runs out. I mean, if we want to trade it we should be able to since we pay for it in our deluxe dues. My son sure does not want his boy webbies wearing a "Queen of Hearts" dress and should have the ability to trade it for something a boy webbie wears.

Two of our accounts have not even received the gift box and, of course, as usual, the estore points have not been added.

I tried to call Ganz but they are only taking names and numbers with a promise to "call back."

From experience, I know that it often takes a few days for all the Gift Boxes to arrive in Webkinz World .. the same with the eStore points ..

I hope yours arrive soon!

Re: Webkinz Insider Members Puzzled About the February Deluxe Gift Item!

I hope this is a mistake as well, but I'm very concerned that I see this dress in the estore. What is the point of having extra deluxe accounts if you can't kinzpost your prizes??

All my boxes have arrived, but my points have not, I always have to call...

Re: Webkinz Insider Members Puzzled About the February Deluxe Gift Item!

I, for one, will be furious if this happens. I cannot afford to have all of my family's accounts to be deluxe (since they took away the family package). Now, I have a few accounts that are, and whoever likes the monthly prize most is who I send the item to. I don't want the items on my account, and I hope I am not stuck with them, while my kids cannot chose according to their liking.

Re: Webkinz Insider Members Puzzled About the February Deluxe Gift Item!

As someone that has been a deluxe member since the beginning of deluxe (in April some years ago) I can say that my initial family deluxe accounts- the 5 that have been deluxe since the beginning will NOT be renewed for the first time EVER if this is true and the dress does not become kinzpostable. And, I will not be "going deluxe" again on any of my many accounts. I am very disappointed today, but will wait and see what ganz does....

yes, just one more reason to go deluxe people- it is everyone's experience that it doesn't work right, you have to wait and wait and sometimes (many times) call to request them give you what you ALREADY paid them for...

Re: Webkinz Insider Members Puzzled About the February Deluxe Gift Item!

Let's hope that this is a mistake, soon to be rectified by Ganz.... otherwise,it would make no sense. All of the other Deluxe monthly prizes are kinzpostable

Re: Webkinz Insider Members Puzzled About the February Deluxe Gift Item!

This makes me very sad, and I hope they change it's programming...

BF, you're the sweetest Fairy God-Mother ever!

Keeping my fingers crossed that "selling and trading" also include kinzposting!

Re: Webkinz Insider Members Puzzled About the February Deluxe Gift Item! *UPDATE*

i got my box but no points and I hope ganz will not stop taking phone calls.

Re: Webkinz Insider Members Puzzled About the February Deluxe Gift Item! *UPDATE*

Woohoo! That is good news indeed. Thank you, WI, for keeping up posted!

Re: Webkinz Insider Members Puzzled About the February Deluxe Gift Item! *UPDATE*

Thank You very much Butterflies! What a wonderful job You did bringing it to the front page ~ so glad to have someone as wonderful as you to help all the Deluxies

Re: Webkinz Insider Members Puzzled About the February Deluxe Gift Item! *UPDATE*

Thanks for informing us about this! I'm glad that the dress is able to be sent after all. It's gorgeous, I might have to trade for it sometime. :]

Re: Webkinz Insider Members Puzzled About the February Deluxe Gift Item! *UPDATE*

I didn't get mine this morning.... check right now

Sorry "I'll' check right now

Re: Webkinz Insider Members Puzzled About the February Deluxe Gift Item! *UPDATE*

I received this dress and the January gift box (I don't even think I signed up for Deluxe but it all showed on my account.... ??). It's cute!

Re: Webkinz Insider Members Puzzled About the February Deluxe Gift Item! *UPDATE*

Thanks for the info & the updated info as well

Re: Webkinz Insider Members Puzzled About the February Deluxe Gift Item! *UPDATE*

NONE of our accounts have received their Deluxe Box yet - I'd say this is typical over a weekend, but the 1st was FRIDAY....

Is it because our Membership expires this month? Do we have to wait for the new Membership to kick in to get this month's box?

Thanks for the help....

Re: Webkinz Insider Members Puzzled About the February Deluxe Gift Item! *UPDATE*

Very cool .................

Re: Webkinz Insider Members Puzzled About the February Deluxe Gift Item! *UPDATE*

It maybe true that the February Deluxe Gift item, "Queen of Hearts Gown" has a glitch that prevents it from being traded or sent to another account. However, being a Deluxe Member, I found out today that the Gown is for sale at the Ganz eStore to Regular and Deluxe members for 3,000 points. Any item purchased at the Ganz eStore also cannot be traded or sent to another account. Has any Deluxe Member ever known of a Monthly Gift Item being for sale at the Ganz eStore the same month as received or ever at anytime? Just hit me as strange. Wishing everyone a Blessed Day!
