Well, it only lasted about 2 hours and our members were able to grab quite a few of the Griffin Emblem Rugs, helping one another figure out the pattern of appearance. Unfortunately, the biggest Webkinz Newz contest to date has been closed and postponed to a later date. Congratulations to everyone who got a code!

Waah...I missed them...Can't wait until they run it again..Hope it's soon!
Congratulations to all of you who got them!!

Re: Webkinz Newz Griffin Emblem Rug Giveaway Contest Canceled After Only 2 Hours!

COLLOSAL waste of time... Over an hour trying to catch sight of a rug only to have the security code not work (and I tried it over and over for 40 minutes before getting the message that the contest was closed)...

Re: Webkinz Newz Griffin Emblem Rug Giveaway Contest Canceled After Only 2 Hours!

Well Ganz, way to give the KIDS a chance at this. Most kids are in school by 9 am....... very sad. At least us adults had the chance at getting one!!! I will really be sure to keep this info away from my son.

Re: Webkinz Newz Griffin Emblem Rug Giveaway Contest Canceled After Only 2 Hours!

Ganz has more problems then any other site I have seen. Buy membership, buy webkinz is worth the money I starting to get let down by Ganz and my children and grandchildren too. Ready to close all accounts. Sorry

We'll see what we can do here to give the kids a chance... We won't have 5000, but we'll see what we can get together to soften the blow!

Re: Webkinz Newz Griffin Emblem Rug Giveaway Contest Canceled After Only 2 Hours!

Yeah I agree, this was a contest for adults not kids...kids are at school by 9am on a Wed sheesh! They should have this contest on a weekend!

Re: Webkinz Newz Griffin Emblem Rug Giveaway Contest Canceled After Only 2 Hours!

I would buy one if they offered it in the eStore and then I wouldn't bother with the contest the next time it rolls around!!

Re: Webkinz Newz Griffin Emblem Rug Giveaway Contest Canceled After Only 2 Hours!

We were lucky enough to catch one...Too bad I have 2 children...

And just as an added note..this item is postable like the Unicorn Banner...

Re: Webkinz Newz Griffin Emblem Rug Giveaway Contest Canceled After Only 2 Hours!

I caught the flying rug 4 times...but, each time I got the message that the security code was incorrect. A Ganz service person said to take a screen shot and send it to them. I did, so we'll see if I get a rug or not! Before I could post that info here, the contest was closed. Thanks,. I probably would not have known about the contest at all if it wasn't for the info here!

Justin, you are always so thoughtful!

Re: Webkinz Newz Griffin Emblem Rug Giveaway Contest Canceled After Only 2 Hours!

waste of time for me as well! Congrats to those who were able to get one! My kids will be crushed...hopefully the next time will be better!

Re: Webkinz Newz Griffin Emblem Rug Giveaway Contest Canceled After Only 2 Hours!

I know lots of people are upset, I also did not get a rug

But I do not think this was a way to keep kids out. The original time for the contest was until 11:59 PM so it was suppose to run all day.

There are kids who home school (not mine) etc. so I think because the contest was suppose to run all day is pretty fair.

The fact it shut down and people will get to keep rugs when others will NOT have the chance is another ENTIRE story!

Re: Webkinz Newz Griffin Emblem Rug Giveaway Contest Canceled After Only 2 Hours!

I'm homeschooled, so I was able to get the rug

Better luck next time to those who didn't get a rug. I didn't have a problem getting my rug. The verification code worked fine for me. Hopefully next time it will be easier.

Re: Webkinz Newz Griffin Emblem Rug Giveaway Contest Canceled After Only 2 Hours!

Justin that is very thoughtful of you. I'm sure alot of kids would like the chance to have one.

I had that same problem. It is probably why they closed the contest. I was really disappointed as I suppose a lot of people were.

Re: Webkinz Newz Griffin Emblem Rug Giveaway Contest Canceled After Only 2 Hours!

I never got to see a rug, but thanx 2 a wiinner's post, I entered the url & finally got past the secret code errors. I haven't been able to enter contests since I'm in NY, therefore missed the unicorn banner, so this is especially sweet. Hopefully we'll have more lucky winners after they fix the glitches. And thanx to for all the terrific info!

Re: Webkinz Newz Griffin Emblem Rug Giveaway Contest Canceled After Only 2 Hours!

I caught a rug right after 9:00. I filled in the entry blank and submitted my answer. The confirmation code wouldn't work. I kept trying (12 times) then the screen said "sorry, technical difficulties. Please log out and try again". I immediately called the Ganz 'hot line' and they said they were having problems and they would call back after they got word from the tech.

I spent the next 2 hours refreshing and logging in and out with no luck. No rug to be found. Then they shut down the contest at 11:02.

Customer service called me back at 11:20am and said "We are having difficulties and have shut down the contest until further notice. Keep an eye out for the next time to play." When I complaied about catching one and not being awarded a prize they said no one was able to win. I explained to her that in fact my friend had one sent to her email and she only said, "Sorry but I was told no one was able to get a prize. Watch for when we reopen the contest for another chance to win." I told her that it wasn't fair that I indeed caught one, and had the correct answer wasn't there a way to award my gift anyways. I was told to play the next time.

Totally bites !@!

Really?? Wow, that is a great idea. Just another reason to love this place!!! The kids out there will be thrilled I am sure Glad to know that this site will at least think about the kids!

Re: Webkinz Newz Griffin Emblem Rug Giveaway Contest Canceled After Only 2 Hours!

I had to leave shortly after the contest started but congrats to those who got a rug!!!!

And giving the kids a chance to get a rug is an awesome idea Justin....
