Webkinz Insider Member Purchases ExtravaGANZa-Tagged Webkinz


As many of you have noticed, Ganz is starting to gear up for the Webkinz ExtravaGANZa next month. The Webkinz ExtravaGANZa is a three day long event that takes place at Webkinz retailers and is a celebration of the anniversary of the launch of Webkinz World.  On the actual date of the anniversary, April 29th, customers visiting Webkinz World will receive a special "Year Four" gift.  Then, on May 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, customers visiting Webkinz retailers will be able to continue celebrating with special deals on Webkinz, special games, and a lot of Webkinz-themed fun.
 
 
Although the Webkinz ExtravaGANZa is still a few weeks away, at least one Webkinz Insider member got a sneak peek at the celebration.  Pigster318 was able to purchase two Webkinz (Black Poodle & Pig) from her local retailer with special "ExtravaGANZa" tags.  According to the tags, these Webkinz must be adopted no later than May 31st because that is the day the adoption codes will expire.  Pigster318 purchased the Webkinz at her local mall for $5.00 each.
 
According to our sources, these specially tagged Webkinz were sent to retailers to be used as part of the Webkinz ExtravaGANZa promotion.  Customers making a $15 Webkinz purchase are to be given the option of purchasing one of these Webkinz for only $1.  All retailers receiving these Webkinz have signed an agreement with Ganz stating that they will explain to the customer that each of these tags has an expiration date, that they will only sell them as part of the ExtravaGANZa promotion, and that they will not sell them for more than $1.00.

What is the black pet? I can't make it out. Also, if they have agreed not to sell them for more than $1 - why were they sold for $5? Hmmm...

Re: Webkinz Insider Member Purchases ExtravaGANZa-Tagged Webkinz

That is awesome! I cant wait to hit up my local store!

Re: Webkinz Insider Member Purchases ExtravaGANZa-Tagged Webkinz

Aw, cool! I want to get some good deals soon.. Thanks for adding that story FIA!

Re: Webkinz Insider Member Purchases ExtravaGANZa-Tagged Webkinz

I was able to pick them up because the lady knows us well, You are supposed to buy @ least $15 worth of webkinz products in order to receive the extravaganza pet for $1, The tag says suggested retail price $1. We did not buy any other webkinz just the 2, the black poodle and the pig. She had about 4 other pets with the extravaganza, there was a pink poodle, horse, terrier, frog, and I think a tiger. not sure on the tiger.

Awesome! That is so cool! I wish there was a store near me!

Re: Webkinz Insider Member Purchases ExtravaGANZa-Tagged Webkinz

Here's a pic of the front of the tag close up. Tried to make it as clear as possible.

Re: Webkinz Insider Member Purchases ExtravaGANZa-Tagged Webkinz

I just bought almost $80 worth of Webkinz stuff today between two stores at the mall and neither one of them offered me these.

Is there a specific start date?

You are correct on the tiger as well. I got 4 of them already for $1 each from my retailer who knows me well. I haven't tried to put them in yet because I'm not sure they are programmed yet.

Good luck to everyone getting them. There should be plenty to go around.

They are supposed to be sold May 1, 2 and 3 for the extravaganza.

Re: Webkinz Insider Member Purchases ExtravaGANZa-Tagged Webkinz

I wonder if somewhere in that list of conditions that retailers signed and were then supposed to adhere to were the words "unless you know the person well?"

Re: Webkinz Insider Member Purchases ExtravaGANZa-Tagged Webkinz

My local retailer told me I had to spend $15 on anything in her store. It was hard to see through the plastic, but she has a brown horse, pig, tiger, black poodle, pink dog. white dog with a pink bow, green frog, could not tell if it was the tie dyed one. This is really bad for me cause she sells yarn too. Two addictions in one store. and she just got in backpack clips today too. Just sign me new webkinz mom since Nov. at 22 and counting. did you know you can knit almost 15 stitches between rounds of Smoothie Moves? Trivia for the day.:clyde:

Re: Webkinz Insider Member Purchases ExtravaGANZa-Tagged Webkinz

I have to say i am disappointed. I really thought that there would be new pets, like a peacock or something. I guess i got the wrong conclusion. When FIA said specially tagged webkinz, i thought special pets! Oh well. . . i guess i thought Ganz would be a bit more creative. . . At least i want the frog...

Here is the postcard/flyer that was given to us at the mall today:

Re: Webkinz Insider Member Purchases ExtravaGANZa-Tagged Webkinz

I would be asking the retailer why they charged me $5 for something they were supposed to, perhaps even contractually (don't know if that is a word it just seemed to fit what I wanted to express) for $1.

Re: Webkinz Insider Member Purchases ExtravaGANZa-Tagged Webkinz

Are these lil kinz or webkinz?

Re: Webkinz Insider Member Purchases ExtravaGANZa-Tagged Webkinz

They are regular size webkinz. My boyfriend and I saw them available 1 week ago. Though they are not supposed to be offered until the May 1st Weekend, I guess a few stores do not mind. I was a little unhappy with the selection, But you cant beat the price
