Duplicate Deluxe Member Gifts, Possible Early Warning About Retired Theme!


August Deluxe Membership Duplicate
 
A number of Webkinz users (though not all) are seeing a familiar piece of mail in Kinz Post this morning -- The August Deluxe Gift! It appears that, for some unknown reason, certain Deluxe members have been receiving August's Ringmaster Blazer gift, rather than the Hypnotic Glasses for September! We're unsure at this point what Ganz is planning to correct this glitch, but rest assured that Deluxe members will get September's Deluxe Membership gift at some point.
 
In addition, a number of users are reporting that the Baseball theme has gone missing from the wShop on their accounts in the following thread in our Webkinz Forum -- Retired Theme Gone From the W Shop. We can't confirm or deny at this point if the Baseball theme will be the one that Ganz chooses to retire from their mystery announcement of retirement last week, but this is the most promising information to date, so you all may want to pick up some Baseball theme items, just in case!
 
With the September Deluxe Glitch, the missing Baseball theme, missing Sapphire Spaniel from the eStore, and mixed-up Pet of the Month activities, maintenance today seems like a foregone conclusion. Everyone, cross your fingers and toes that maintenance is completed quickly and that the rare schedule at Arte's Curio Shop doesn't change. Today is the first chance for all of you non-deluxe members to buy the Colossal Movie Screen from Arte's Curio Shop at 6pm Kinz Time!
 
UPDATE: The Sapphire Spaniel is now available at the eStore.
 
As of 1pm KT, Deluxe Boxes are awarding the Hypnotic Glasses as part of the September Deluxe gift box. Also Daily Activites have been changed to the September Pet of the Month, the Webkinz Leopard.

Re: Duplicate Deluxe Member Gifts, Possible Early Warning About Retired Theme!

thanks for the info!! u r great

Re: Duplicate Deluxe Member Gifts, Possible Early Warning About Retired Theme!

Oh, I wonder if the Baseball Themes Retiring?

Re: Duplicate Deluxe Member Gifts, Possible Early Warning About Retired Theme!

I have just seen that the hourly activities list something for Grey Arabian horse owners. It is all messed up.

Re: Duplicate Deluxe Member Gifts, Possible Early Warning About Retired Theme!

Yes, the Asian accounts were able to get their coupons using the Grey Arabian. It is ALL messed up. Like Justin says pray that maintenance is not a long standing issue. Many of the regular users have been looking forward to the Colossal Movie screen and this may be that opportunity if maintenance is not held for too long

Re: Duplicate Deluxe Member Gifts, Possible Early Warning About Retired Theme!

if you notice the pet of the mth items still say arabian
ugggh i should have opened my gift box before i left the house today lol

Re: Duplicate Deluxe Member Gifts, Possible Early Warning About Retired Theme!

Yes i get the movie screen!!!! I am soooo happy

Re: Duplicate Deluxe Member Gifts, Possible Early Warning About Retired Theme!

I just opened my deluxe box on one of my accounts and got the August gift. I think I'll wait on the other and wait to adopt Nala, my leopard. Let's hope the maintenance crew is up early!

Re: Duplicate Deluxe Member Gifts, Possible Early Warning About Retired Theme!

i got the ringmaster's blazer =/ hopefully it's fixed soon b/c those glasses are awesome!

Re: Duplicate Deluxe Member Gifts, Possible Early Warning About Retired Theme!

woah, have they already gone down for maintenance? I just started getting the "something wrong with our server message"... glad I logged in early and got most of my gardening done!

It's so weird they seemed to "miss" September 1, because they definitely had the ribbons flying.

Re: Duplicate Deluxe Member Gifts, Possible Early Warning About Retired Theme!

The E-Store is also closed for 'Important Updates'. Glad I just got home from work so I can sleep through all the mess! I can't wait to see what is going on later this afternoon.

I agree with you. I really wanted those glasses!

Re: Duplicate Deluxe Member Gifts, Possible Early Warning About Retired Theme!

We also received the "glitched" deluxe gift. We got the ringmaster jacket, the Cat Sofa and a wish token. That was pretty funny to see, again, this morning. Wonder if they will take the stuff back?

:abn::cdee:

Re: Duplicate Deluxe Member Gifts, Possible Early Warning About Retired Theme!

I have recieved the duplicate deluxe member gifts on 3 of my accounts and the other 3 the box is missing. What's up with that....

Re: Duplicate Deluxe Member Gifts, Possible Early Warning About Retired Theme!

Sheesh. Can't GANZ get anything right before they roll it out?

How are they going to fix this? They can't go into every Deluxe Member account and take away their gift, especially after they opened it... some people may have Kinzposted their jacket to another account (eg to kids) so trying to convert a Ringmaster jacket to the glasses may not work, and to penalize people for opening the box before the glitch was fixed is not really fair...

I'm going to wait a while before opening my Deluxe box....


Side effect: my gardens got all messed up too. I raked them yesterday, still had a few days before crops- and today half of them are ready with crops and the rest are weedy.

Re: Duplicate Deluxe Member Gifts, Possible Early Warning About Retired Theme!

I received the August Deluxe gift package too. I was not even allowed to water some of my gardens today. The watering can wouldn't work. And with the grey arabian still potm, this maintainence is a whopper for Ganz. I opened my duluxe package, so I wonder how Ganz will do this....Wil they search through my dock???

Re: Duplicate Deluxe Member Gifts, Possible Early Warning About Retired Theme!

I know I'd be bummed if I was expecting those way cool glasses and got something I already had..I'm sure they'll fix it-after all, they're giving us that screen finally! Miracles never cease!

I received the Ringmaster's Blazer and a Baseball Uniform Piece. The baseball theme is not in my W-Shop and my Activities do still show the Grey Arabian as Pet of the Month.

Re: Duplicate Deluxe Member Gifts, Possible Early Warning About Retired Theme!

My adopting the Leopard (Roberto) went well today. It was after the adoption that I opened the gift box that I saw last months gift??? If I had saw that glitch first I may have waited to adopt. Thanks for keeping us posted, it is nice to know that you are not the only one these things happen to!

Re: Duplicate Deluxe Member Gifts, Possible Early Warning About Retired Theme!

I just logged on, and noticed that there's a bonus W shop coupon for the August POTM. As much as I'm curious about the baseball theme, I'm much more interested in why I can't load up my new leopard today and get a gift.
