Webkinz Deluxe Membership Added to Webkinz World!


Thanks to RobKinz for letting us know that, after a brief maintenance last night, Ganz has added a "Deluxe Membership" to Webkinz World.  The Deluxe Membership comes in many flavors and each pricing level earns you different benefits.  The pricing ranges from $5/month all the way to $45 for an annual membership and you will receive different types of exclusives (both tradeable and non-tradeable), monthly "Ganz points(?)", extra activities, monthly gift boxes, and a special Kinz Chat zone for subscribing.  

At this point, we're assuming the "Ganz points" are related to the new ads we've been seeing in the eStore and that these Ganz points are not Kinz Cash in Webkinz World.

Re: Webkinz Deluxe Membership Added to Webkinz World!

I REALLY don't like the new addition because if you are a Bonus delulxe member you will have to PAY even MORE than if you were just a regular member. But I mean... this is going on with ALL kid sites these days, like Club Penguin, Dizzywood, and now WEBKINZ WORLD!!! IT IS HORRIBLE!

RATS, I was just finishing my upload of the images below to send you thinking I was going to get the 'scoop' this time... Anyway, here are the two I captured other than the one you included above...

Re: Webkinz Deluxe Membership Added to Webkinz World!

When I first saw this I was like..."Deluxe Membership?" My account has nearly 300 webbies isn't that deluxe enough with all the money I've spent..not to mention I own every item they have offered at the estore. Oh well, just another ganz money making scheme.

Re: Webkinz Deluxe Membership Added to Webkinz World!

i do hope this is an april fools day joke! anything to make another dollar!

Re: Webkinz Deluxe Membership Added to Webkinz World!

Well, as some of the parents mentioned on another thread, it's one way to make sure your kids get a new gift box every month and costs less than a new plushie. I won't be buying it, but some people will. That's cool I guess, if it keeps the site running. I just don't want to see too many "exclusive" areas on the regular WW site only for those who spend extra. I thought the magical forest was bad enough when I first joined!

Re: Webkinz Deluxe Membership Added to Webkinz World!

AHH!! I Just got laid off from my job and now this! I am actually scheming how to scrounge up $45! I guess we could just get one month for $5 and wait to see what the "exclusive" estore quality item is and if it is worth it, pay all $45 next month.
They are just introducing too much too fast. Kinz clips, caring valley, signiture series, E-store bunny, now a special membership. Do they know we are in a global recession?? LOL!

Re: Webkinz Deluxe Membership Added to Webkinz World!

I think this is interesting and can't wait to find out more. For me it would be much less expensive than trying to keep up with all of the new plush! I can't wait to hear more about it

Re: Webkinz Deluxe Membership Added to Webkinz World!

Wow, they found another way to get money out of us parents. As if we don't spend enough on everything else they have to offer!

Re: Webkinz Deluxe Membership Added to Webkinz World!

Not really to happy to see this. This was one web site that didn't cost a lot to get on and now the deluxe version is $45 / family per year. It reminds me of Club Penguin. Webkinz was a great value for the price of an animal. You do have a choice to buy it or not. At this point I hope they don't take anything away from the regular Webkinz and move it to the deluxe membership. I love to trade and I hope that doesn't move only to the deluxe Webkinz. I feel sorry for the kids who won't be able to get their parents to buy this. It is suppose to be for kids after all. This seems to be too much money to spend in this economy. I guess as long as the regular Webkinz stays the same and they don' t move trading and other features to deluxe only, I will be happy. Weather I buy a deluxe version just depends on what the site has to offer. I know this already upset my daughter who is totally in to Webkinz. What does everyone else think?

I hear ya! Too bad there isn't a special stimulus package for all us Webkinz addicts!

Re: Webkinz Deluxe Membership Added to Webkinz World!

Whelp...we have to choose between the unique estore item for one of us or have each of us get a membership. I would be willing to pay a bit more for a family membership if that meant my kids each got an item. Always a catch...as there is no way I can afford a individual membership for all four of us. Geez...what to do.

I hope the benefits add up to being worth it...guess we'll just have to wait and see.

Re: Webkinz Deluxe Membership Added to Webkinz World!

My one big bragging tool I had about Webkinz was that it was only as expensive as you want to make it. It could cost as less as one baby a year-or as much as you want...This still seems to be applicable.

I can't really fault Ganz for wanting to make more money (who doesn't ? ) . If people are willing to pay for these extras, that is their choice and decision. I would get very upset, if we were not offered the choice-if they said to pay montly or lose our accounts-but that does not appear to the be case.

Re: Webkinz Deluxe Membership Added to Webkinz World!

I would love to hear this is an April Fools story...

the e-store item only comes with the single membership for a year. i would wait to see who buys that package and see what type of items they give and then decide.
why put out 5 dollars only to go back and lay out 45 on the next go around.

sorry about the lay off..... that is not fun. hopefully things turn around for you.

thanks for the information justin

Re: Webkinz Deluxe Membership Added to Webkinz World!

Hmmm...for some reason I can't edit my post...sorry about the multiples.

I just had a thought...I didn't read anywhere about whether or not if you purchased the Deluxe membership if you still had to put a new plushie on during the year or not. Am hoping this new membership will replace that requirement making additional plushies totally optional and no longer necc to maintain the account.

Anyone know which way this will go?

Re: Webkinz Deluxe Membership Added to Webkinz World!

I already posted on a different thread about this but I will post here as well. I would probably be more receptive to this if there weren't SO many glitches on the website to begin with. What's the guarantee that these new features are even going to work? I don't know how many POTM's we've bought only to not receive our gift boxes and then to be told for a while there that they are sorry but they can't help us since we've had problems before and now they are going to add another gift box feature? Are they going to let the rest of the website go and only focus on the "gold" membership areas? Will we have to "wait in line" to sign in if we are not a gold member?

As I said, I wouldn't have too much issue with this if the current website was working properly. I've failed many KVA classes due to their glitches, lost items that weren't replaced, didn't receive items that were promised.... Is the GOLD membership going to alleviate all this or just create a new area of frustration?

I also agree with the person who said they have over 300 webbies on one account. Isn't that deluxe membership? We are in the same boat.

I also don't like that the only way to get the exclusive item is to sign up one account for a year. Why not make the family account a little more and give each account that exclusive?

i think the deluxe membership is separate from the actual adopting of plushies. the deluxe is for a month or year. yet if you adopt a webbie, you actual account extends a year from the date of adoption. so the deluxe membership will run out before your account expires.

Re: Webkinz Deluxe Membership Added to Webkinz World!

I like the idea of a gold membership because I don't buy myself webkinz except the e-store ones that don't come with a plush, but I also think they should have waited until a month that they didn't have so many other things coming out. I will be spending money this month on 2 new pets my daughter wants, 1 signature panda, 2 backpack clips and a caring valley pet. Isn't that enough for one month?

Re: Webkinz Deluxe Membership Added to Webkinz World!

It doesn't tell you where to go to buy a membership??? Will this be in the e-store? I can't even log on yet, how about any of you? I would be willing to try 1 month and see how it works. I've spent $5 on dumber stuff!!!

i can totally feel your pain and frustration. i. luckily, didn't have the potm issues..... but i haven't adopted a potm in the last 3 times. i would hope that the deluxe membership doesn't make a regular account have less importance.... i think the deluxe membership only comes into play once you are in the site.. such as giving you a different area to go to when you go to the clubhouse. so i don't think waiting in line to get into the site is an issue.

i do agree with the e-store item being available to the single account, but not to the family plan. i think that should be a touch more and add the e-store item.
