Deluxe Curio Shop Update Explained


There has been some confusion in the forum over what today's update to the Curio Shop means for Webkinz players.  So, to try to clear things up, here is a quick summary of the changes:
 
Instead of having twelve items for sale each hour, Arte now has twenty-four items for sale.  However, only members with Deluxe Webkinz memberships are able to see all twenty-four items at the same time.  If a member with a regular Webkinz membership wants to view all twenty-four items, he/she will have to log out of Webkinz World and log back in again.  Since the items are organized randomly, it may take several tries to get a look at them all.
 
This is going to be very important when Rare items are for sale in the Curio Shop.  If you have a regular Webkinz membership, when it's time for Arte to have a Rare item for sale, it may not be visible at first.  You may have to go through the process of logging out and logging back in several times to get the Rare item to show up.  Members with regular Asian accounts reported being able to do this with Wednesday's 10pm Rare item, the Egyptian Vase.
 
According to the Webkinz Newz, "Deluxe Members will get an extra rare each day in the Curio Shop."  Based on what we have seen in Webkinz World today, that doesn't seem to be the case.

Re: Deluxe Curio Shop Update Explained

Really? Well, that's hard, I'm not a deluxe!

Re: Deluxe Curio Shop Update Explained

Thank you for letting everyone know about this important change to the Curio Shop programming!

Re: Deluxe Curio Shop Update Explained

So, does that mean that deluxe members get to buy two items? (one from each)

Re: Deluxe Curio Shop Update Explained

thanks for the info!!!!!!!!!!!!








Re: Deluxe Curio Shop Update Explained

I am glad you cleared that up

I think it is great that the deluxe members get extra stuff... but i don't have deluxe and I was a little worried that they were taking AWAY something from us normal members... I'm glad that we can still buy the rare if we want, just have to log out a few times to see it I guess.

Its great they add stuff, but please don't take things away from the normal members

Re: Deluxe Curio Shop Update Explained

I'm a little confused - I understand logging in and then out and then in again to see the "extra" sales items - is that itself a glitch? Should the "regular" members be able to see all 24 items? (I'm not knocking regular memberships, just trying to understand the 'added feature' if it's technically available to all) and if there is an 'extra rare' for deluxe members, will logging out and then back in again for regular sites call up the rare for them? I guess time will tell.

Re: Deluxe Curio Shop Update Explained

Thanks FIA for the explanation. It's operating now like the Kinzstyle shop. If you don't see what you want the first time, you have to go through that log out/in process until it's there. Very time consuming, especially if you have an older, slower computer. Not too much fun for the little ones! Thanks again! CJ

Re: Deluxe Curio Shop Update Explained

im a deluxe but it shows me the same things for deluxe and regular curio shop items?

That is a very strong possibility. I know there were two rares offered in the Asian accounts earlier and I had access to both. I have Deluxe in my Asian accounts.

I'm with you on that one. I can totally put up with having to do a little more legwork-I feel vindicated. Us regular Joes aren't being left in the the Curio Shop Dust!

Us normal members spend money too-just on plushies and trading cards and...all that other tangible stuff!

Re: Deluxe Curio Shop Update Explained

This isn't working for me either. I see the same things in deluxe as regular curio shop. Is anyone with a North American account seeing 24 different items?

Re: Deluxe Curio Shop Update Explained

I'm really puzzled by the logic of what they're doing in the Curio Shop. Several times I opened 5 US accts at the same time, 3 deluxe and 2 non-deluxe, at various hours, then compared Arte's offerings. Did the same with 2 Asian and 2 Euro accounts.

In some instances, the Deluxe offerings for that hour were identical to Arte's regular non-Deluxe items. Therefore I'm not sure I understand how the Deluxe offerings are "special extra items" for Deluxe members only.

I also noticed that the list of items available for sale each hour were slightly different from one account to the next within the same time zone in both the regular and Deluxe sections. I was really hard-pressed to find the same 12 or 24 identical items listed at any given point in time from one account to the next. I could find NO DIFFERENCES in any pricing, however and as best I observed, everything cost the same no matter where it was listed.

For this afternoon's rare item sale in the Euro accounts (medieval chest), the chest appeared in the Deluxe section of my Deluxe Euro account and in the regular section of my non-Deluxe Euro account. Waiting to see what happens later this afternoon with the vase.

This new upgrade makes you have look much closer to find sales and special deals. And I don't think you can rely on logging onto only account per time zone each hour if you want to see each and every sale or curio-only item (e.g. floors). MUCH MORE time consuming.

I see 24 different items with my deluxe membership (12 in regular, 12 different in deluxe).

It is possibly a glitch in the programming on some servers?

Have you tried clearing your cookies and temporary files/cache on your internet browser? That might help.

Re: Deluxe Curio Shop Update Explained

I'm sorry but I think they are taking this deluxe membership too far! It really isn't fair to children who can't get the deluxe. We have the family deluxe but we also have 10 other accounts. That's one of the reasons we have extra accounts, to get extra rares. So I don't like the idea that I'm possibly going to have to log in and out on several accounts to find the rare. Very time consuming and pointless. I'm guessing most children on webkinz won't know that they have to log in and out. It's just ridiculous that if you can't get the deluxe on your account they make you jump thru hoops or feel inferior when you spend your hard earned money the same as everyone else who buys webkinz.

Re: Deluxe Curio Shop Update Explained

The curio shop -deluxe is not deluxe- the same items.

My Reason I am Very Disappointed in Deluxe membership Everything so far.
1st that stupid sticker @ the top of the screen has got to go- come on- if I am playing with someone they don't see it or even need to because they aren't looking at my account from my computer.
I am & I already know I'm deluxe member ! ??? a waste of money!
O.K. Next, the deluxe wheel spin is awful, I can make those foods and kc or buy the Curio & Wshop items when I want to.
Deluxe Items are only items not found anywhere else in WW, Estore & The Curio Shop or even the kinzstyle shop.
ARTE UPGRADE- Regular & Deluxe curio shop items are the same prices... nothing deluxe about that.
Again, a waste of real money.
Deluxe Dentures for Arte & worthless so called upgrades-
How about prioritizing the things on the daily activities and deluxe activities that have not worked for some time.
If you have called Ganz about things not working and have been told as I have that it has been addressed & no one else has said anything is not working, that is not true because of all the threads and posts here.
I will continue to try but Not happy about the Not Really Deluxe at this time.
I don't care for those Deluxe Dentures of Arte's

Oh why are the items not in the wshop to finish the store theme. cache clearing etc was done before even logging on line @ 3pm today so ........

I think the way it is working now is a programming glitch; and once they get it fixed, all regular members will see the same things and then all deluxe members will see 12 additional items. On the Webkinz News site it says "Deluxe members will get an extra rare each day in the Curio Shop - if you’re a keen collector, be sure to check the Curio Shop regularly!" So, there is definitely a programming bug!

Re: Deluxe Curio Shop Update Explained

Thanks Soo Much for clearing that up, I thought only the deluxe members would be allowed to use the curio shop now! Thanks again

Clearing the temp files and cache didn't work. Logging off and on again didn't work. What did work was switching to a different browser (IE- ugh). I am actually hoping this is a glitch that can be fixed on the Ganz end but I have a feeling it's my Firefox apps. Alas, it's time to poke around in there and see what isn't working with the Ganz site (Maybe KidZui? now that would be ironic).

I don't care for those Deluxe Dentures of Arte's QUOTE]

I called Ganz for the very first time yesterday about an issue I'm having with my 60-pet main Deluxe account (sometime in late May around pet #45 I stopped my $3500 for each new adoption), plus not receiving anything on my birthday last Saturday. And my mail isn't working right; can't scroll back through "View Read Mail" for more than one day. I didn't ask to speak with a supervisor; wanted to see how far I'd get with an ordinary person staffing their help line.

While I was on the phone, I ran through the rest of my list of problems and annoyances. According to this average employee, Ganz is very well aware that Jellybean Challenge hasn't worked in a work long time even though they continue scheduling the event. They know you sometimes have to log off and back on into order to do Quick Draws and Trivia Blast. They know there's no recess in Asia & Europe. They know that Fool's Gold Chocolate from your vacation won't go into a fridge; she said "it belongs in your dock if you don't feed it to your pet." (HUH???) They know their customers don't like the room naming system and docks get backed up with items because you can't find which room on your map your new piece of furniture belongs in because too many rooms all have the same names (The Bedroom, The Bathroom, etc.)

Seems they darn well ALREADY KNEW about every single problem I mentioned as well as problems other forum members have discussed. So why can't they fix them?

As a result of my phone call, there is no extra Kinzcash in my account today. And there is still no birthday gift. And I didn't receive a return phone call from the girl today as promised.
